On Monday, Hu Xijin had taken a jibe at India saying that even if Chinese people want to boycott Indian products, they can’t really find many Indian goods. He further said that Indians need to have some things that are more important than nationalism. In response, Anand Mahindra took to Twitter and called it a “motivating rallying cry for India Inc.” Anand Mahindra further hit back at Hu Xijin as he sarcastically thanked him for the provocation and added that Indians will rise to the occasion.

On Monday, the Government of India announced that there were 59 China banned apps including TikTok due to privacy issues. The Government has decided to ban the usage of these apps both in mobile and non-mobile Internet-enabled devices. It also stated that the China banned apps move will safeguard the interests of crores of Indian mobile and internet users.

The decision to ban these apps is a targeted move to ensure the safety and sovereignty of Indian cyberspace. There has been a widespread call to boycott Chinese products in the wake of the deadly clash that took place in Galwan Valley earlier this month.
