Chinese companies are rapidly taking over and threatening the Indian market and the new adage is "Information is the new oil."

They are a direct threat to India's national security and domestic market. These apps are PERFECT for spying and mass propaganda. World has already witnessed what a foreign entity can do in a nation's internal affairs—Russian interference in 2016 US Elections. Imagine what a country can do when it controls the big companies itself! 

Apps like TikTok, Newsdog are among the Chinese apps which can and will have far reaching effect on upcoming Indian internet users. These Internet users in India— who know little about the Internet and its working— can be molded through mass propaganda against anyone or for anyone. India can soon be a playground for China to play. America is already afraid of the Chinese company Huawei's phones of spying and that's why they have arrested the company's CFO while the Chinese companies like Xiaomi, Mi, Oppo, Vivo are openly selling their potentially SPYING devices. Chinese will know many things about you, about our workings and can use that information for many ill purposes.

We demand that Indian government block, remove or make daily day operations very hard for these below listed apps in Indian ecosystem:

Note: many apps are taken from the list Indian intelligence agencies provided days back, some are due to their requirement of  unnecessary permissions on Android and some are too mainstream to be. The power of mainstream in the hands of these apps have dangerous effects: they can change people's opinion.

If China is aggressive and conscious about its privacy by blocking media platforms in its country then why India shouldn't be? Indian government must be aggressive in eliminating all threats by China. We will shoot two targets with one arrow: Securing our nation and pushing Indian developers to improve their technology and cover the would be free market.

As an Indian and 18 year old, I ask you: Would you like to be controlled by the Chinese? I strongly prefer not to.
