Indian Government has now banned 59 Chinese apps including the acclaimed cringe content platform Tiktok. According to a report published by China’s state-run media ByteDance – the parent company of the TikTok and Helo apps could lose up to $6 billion( ₹45k crore) after the Indian government decison to ban them citing concerns about privacy and national security of the country. This is, perhaps the first time that someone sitting abroad is incurring losses due to Indians. We usually have incurred losses due to people to flee to foreign cities with millions of ours. All hail Modi (Not Nirav Modi)
A Few months ago an Indian youtuber Ajay Nagar, popularly known as CarryMinati roasted tiktok and tiktokers in his video which was subsequently taken down after few days citing issues such as cyber bullying. His video was about to be the most liked video on youtube. This action by youtube was reproached by his fans.
Moments after the ban was announced, the entire social media was hijacked by memes. Modiji and fellow tiktok critics are now crowned as winners. They are currently ruling the memes. They are on the internet everywhere just like Radhika Apte on Netflix.
“Modiji exclaiming: “Ab maza aayga na bidu” (“let the party roll”)
“Modiji Dancing with other youtubers on Astronomia” (“Chinese apps lying in the coffin”)
“Modiji clicking selfies on Tiktok’s grave” (“Gujratis Rock”)
“Modiji Guffawing “Kyu Hilaa dala na!!” (“Rajnikanth never knew this was coming”)
This decision of ban is so baffling that even Kunal Kamra couldn’t come up with a good anecdote till now.
Nevertheless, PUBG players remain unaffected by the ban. Perhaps Modiji forgot that in “Ye PUBG wala hai Kya”, the PUBG is distributed by a Chinese multinational company Tencent.
After the Galwan valley dispute and constantly aggravating border conflict with China, this decision must be welcomed with open arms and we must refrain from using any Chinese product, even digitally.
