Banned China Apps and Alternatives to Tiktok

Ever since the border clash in Ladakh on June 15 where our soldiers were martyred unjustly by the Chinese, the call to boycott Chinese goods have become more important and heard than ever. Therefore, the Indian Government has been urged to ban everything Chinese, from Chinese firms to Chinese food.

There is a call to use “Made in India” products and rely on local tradesmen instead of Chinese goods. Therefore, on 29th June, the Government of India has decided to ban no less than 59 Chinese apps.

I have often seen on social media, people I know doing Tiktok videos. While some genuinely talented people are doing fine, some just show violent and insensitive behavior. Chinese companies made money out of Indians using Tiktok and have been spending it to kill our own soldiers!

In total, 59 apps have been banned by the Indian Government. These apps are no longer available for download and cannot be used by existing users too. I do not use any of the afore mentioned apps. Have you uninstalled these apps?

Those of you who are missing Tiktok can use these Indian apps as an alternative.

1. Chingari

This app has already garnered over 1 million downloads as a good alternative to Tiktok.

2. Bolo Indya

With more than 1000,000 downloads, Bolo Indya is also another alternative and is available on Google Playstore.

3. Mitron

Over 1 crore downloads have already been seen for this. It is available on Google Play store.

4. ShareChat

A multilingual social network that is available on Google Play store and Apple App store, even this is a good alternative.

Use these alternatives and encourage Indian companies. Support the Indian Army, Navy and Airforce! I stand with the Indian Defence Forces and the Government of India in the decision to ban Chinese apps.

Jai Hind!
