38 Days after India banned popular video-sharing platform TikTok and 58 other Chinese mobile apps in the country citing security reasons, there has been a wave of rage and doubt about the reasons they are banned. After a lot of research into this, came to discover a chain of data theft and espionage Chinese government funds into the Indian economy that will leave you stunned. TikTok, a Chinese video making application owned by bytedance and indirectly managed by the communist party of China has a lot to tell you inside its system.
Chinese investors corner major stakes in 18 out of 30 Indian unicorns which stands at $4 billion. Tiktok, which was then the larger social media platform in India had 200 million users. A numerical which far beyond what we knew. These data contains crucial information about your whereabouts, your likings, dislikings, relations and your contact details. As much as these are sold to corporate telecoms, they are saved in this server in Beijing.
These Chinese tech companies are a national security threat to India and violate the confidentiality of the user’s database. Conducting espionage around the world would be no less than legal in China where there is a law that states that whoever required by the government will have to give access to the company database. This came as a blow to me because I never wondered that a lack of democracy can lead to lack of security too!
Social media platforms owned by Chinese giants are known to censor posts, videos and information on topics like Tiananmen Square
There were 36 calls from children and adults were received by the
counsellor of Tamil Nadu at the 104 helplines regarding TikTok bullying, Tibetian independence, the religious groups like Fallen Gong and Hong Kong.
The most worrying part is the reach of two Chinese companies namely Huawei and ZTE in the Indian Telecom Sector including the Indian military establishment. The establishment data states that more than 60% of the software and hardware related to the telecom being used in India, the state-managed BSNL are either managed by Huawei or by ZTE. Huawei’s supposed links to PLA (People’s Liberation Army). However, these security concerns were sidelined before because of the fact they sell things at a cheaper rate than any other company but not anymore. India’s sovereignty is the first and foremost concern now.
It is not suitable for children and not educational. Children were vulnerable and might get uncovered to sexual predators. In 2019 India alone has obtained 88.6 million TikTok users regardless of the inappropriate content it holds. There has been a significant rise in deaths in India among TikTok users
while filming of videos and adhering to many challenges that appear on the app. The accomplishment of shortlived ‘Micro-Fame’ compels these users to stand out unique in each one of such challenge.
There have been 55 deaths around the world and 40 of them are in India with another data of uncountable people injured as they were either completing some challenge or making a music video. Apart from this, there are numerous cases of injuries and bizarre activities people opting for. Since the users of the app are of a young, impressionable age, a lot of criticism surrounding the app was about the addictive nature of TikTok. People started making videos in odd places, moving traffic, putting their lives at risk. The app also invited criticism from parents over the open interface of the app, where children can interact with strangers via the app. This can also invite possible predators and molesters. Speaking about the ban, writer and educator, Kartik Bajoria said, “As parents bringing up a new generation of children that are exposed to a myriad of potentially damaging stimuli, especially in the form of media, be it sexually explicit and violent video games, a barrage of pop culture through films and music that objectifies women, and countless other visual messaging such as advertising & branding that instils a wrong sense of self that is purely dictated by materialism; we need to be awfully careful.
Being “TikTok famous” was a common goal for high schoolers — and controversial. The company has faced child data privacy fines by the FTC and has been linked to several deaths in India; it has been accused of banning certain content, both politically sensitive and not.
After spending 5 months of “home sitting”, the Indian neighbour cannot be trusted in any sense. It’s the time India should find solutions to these crises locally and should encourage and protect the potential start-ups to be an alternative to this eventually.

Punjab farmer’s rebel to farm bill passed.
Protests quaked several states on Friday as farmers came out to the streets to oppose the three agricultural marketing Bills passed by the Parliament earlier this week.
Farm bills are seen to deliver freedom – not to local farmers, but to private capital, believes the farmers. And so, the farmers’ organizations across the country gave a call for a lockdown to protest against the three bills passed by Parliament.
1.Produce Trade And Commerce (Promotion and facilitation) Bill, which simplified the entry of private players in food grain purchases.
2.The Essential Commodities (Amendment) Bill and
3.The farmers (Empowerment and Protection Agreement ) on Price Assurance and the Farm Services Bill.
The government has already informed that these reforms will hasten the expansion in the sector through private sector investment in assembling infrastructure and B2C supply chains for farm produce is not only the national markets but global markets too. It’s intended to help small farmers who relied on direct selling and can’t bargain either for their produce to get a better price or invest in technology to improve the productivity of farms.
The bill on the Agri market seeks to allow farmers to sell their produce veggies outside APMC ‘mandis’ to whoever they want. A huge margin of benefits can be achieved due to cost-cutting on transportation and reduced competition. However, these 3 amendments could imply loss of the ‘commissions’ and ‘mandi fees’.
As soon as farmers jotted down the points of their losses out of the fear that the government will withdraw the MSP regime that already had guaranteed prices in food grains, a rebel initiated. Despite reassurances from the government, farmers believe that the bills will render the current MSP procurement system ineffective, leaving them at the mercy of “big farmers”.
Amarinder Singh, Chief Minister of Punjab, expressed hope for agitating farmers who protested against agricultural bills and said The Union government with its ill-conceived and unconstitutional farms laws pushed the farmers to the brink, forcing them to come out on roads and endanger their life in Covid-19 pandemic, as agriculture is the backbone of the state. According to farmers, it will destroy the farms’ sector with ruthless disregard for the farming community. But according to the BJP-led Central government, these bills will help small and marginal farms by mandis and sign agreements with agricultural business firms doing away stock-holding limits.
As many as 31 farmers organizations under Bhartiya Kisan Union have joined to complete the shutdown of Punjab according to The Hindu. These Unions had called a statewide bandh on September 25 and 1 October. Apart from that 14 trains have been canceled. Even ‘The Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee’ announced Rail Roko turmoil till September 29. Though the protestors said they will protest in their own areas but Delhi is on high alert and preparations are done to deal with eventuality at borders. Farmers rely on governments for fair prices for their produce. Governments are required to step in and help the farmers as prices go low.
What is the government saying?
The bills will facilitate a barrier-free, inter-state, and intra-state trade and business outside the physical reach of markets acquainted under State Agricultural Produce Marketing legislations.
Prime Minister Modi blamed the rumors of protests. “BJP karyakartas should reach to farmers and in simplified language to inform the intricacies of new farm reforms, ” he said.
Also, assured that they will free the farmers of middlemen and other bottlenecks.
Faceoff: Real or fake encounter
How Vikas Dubey was encountered?
How powerful the contacts of Vikas Dubey are seen during absconding, he had already received a tip-off hours before the police attack, his accomplice Daya Shankar Agnihotri uncovered the fact. So, while he fled from Kanpur, his presence was noticed by a shopkeeper in Mahakal Temple, Ujjain after the photo was circulated by UP police.
Vikas Dubey had purchased offerings for God and bought a Rs 250 ticket for VIP darshan at the temple. As he was leaving, the security guards asked him his name after the pinging of the shopkeeper, and an argument ensued. The cops caught him but he reportedly showed a fake ID proof, but on pushing a policeman and drawing punches from the cops. He is noted to have screamed his identity out-“Main Vikas Dubey hoon, Kanpur wallah.”
The MP Police then reached their UP companions and confirmed Dubey’s identity, said by Manoj Kumar Singh.
The Special task force (STF) vehicle in which Vikas Dubey was transferred over the border, overturned because of heavy rains in the region near Kanpur’s Sachendi area. Also, Four policemen were injured in the accident.
Dubey tried to flee taking a pistol of the injured officer, after being hustled by the police team, he was asked to surrender but he started firing with the motive of killing them. The police team shot back in self-defense after which Vikas Dubey was wounded. He was taken to a hospital, where he died during treatment,” Kanpur Police said in a statement.
Now, a total of five gang members of Dubey have been assassinated so far in encounters by the police since July 2, the day of the attack. The others toed down were Atul Dubey, Prem Prakash Pandey, and Amar Dubey. Police also identified 20 collaborators of Dubey who were with him during the attack. So the actions are taken by police in order to eliminate crimes and deliver justice.
But yet the societal face off remains unanswered, whether the encounter was fake?
Furthermore Samajwadi Party chief and former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav claimed that the killing was staged to protect the government from falling.
Also, Bahujan Samaj Party leader Mayawati has urged the Supreme Court-monitored examination into Vikas Dubey’s killing in police custody.
While BJP leader Uma Bharti congratulated the police, also put forward few questions on her tweet. “1) How did he reach Ujjain 2) For how long was he in the vicinity of the Mahakal temple? 3) Given that his face was splashed so much on TV that anyone could recognize him, how did the police take so long to recognize him?”
It’s a dilemma which remains unanswered and now the questions are raised, but answers on the cost of our officer’s death? Maybe the encounter is just a move to hide some untold truths, but after his deeds, was he allowed to prevail free? Yet it’s not late. Raise voice on every wrongdoing and bring a change in society. Because we are the people who can bring change.
All you need to know about the Gangster Dubey.
60 cases: Snatching, robberies, Assassination of a college principal, Santosh Shukla, Dinesh Dubey, and many more. Yet the reign of terror was not stopped and eight policemen were shot to death.
Even though the trending #fakeencounter #jungleraj are intensifying the death of Vikas Dubey as he was a man of honor. Is it justified?
On the night of 2nd July, when a police squad had reached to arrest Vikas Dubey at Bikru village, based on a complaint of attempted murder. When they arrived at Dubey’s house, an earth-mover was parked outside, according to Jai Narayan Singh (ADG, Kanpur Zone). While the cops were trying to clear the path by moving aside the earth- mover, gunmen ambushed the policemen from rooftops, which led to the death of 8 officers and injured 7 policemen. Dubey took the root of escape and vanished.
So, who is Vikas Dubey? And what saved him after so many murders?
Vikas Dubey was residing in village Bikaru, Chaubepur block, Uttar Pradesh. He was responsible for several illegal activities, including killing and land grabbing. Since his youth he was aspired to be a don and formed his own gang. In the first case, he was accused of murder in 1990 and soon became one of the most wanted gangsters in Kanpur. He was correlated with the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) politician Harikishan Srivastava, and joined the BSP in 1995-96, successfully winning the seat at the district level, by allegedly hiring men.
One of the most high-profile and incredible of all the crimes was the murder of BJP leader Santosh Shukla who was the minister of state in UP government. Vikas Dubey killed him in a police station where 25 eyes witnessed the bloodbath and not a single lip dared to speak up.
Police were so weak that a man slaughtered a politician inside a police station, and nothing was done?
No, Vikas Dubey has been arrested on many occasions but not sentenced in any of the 60 illegal trials because of his “friendships” and connections with politically powerful persons who offered him protection.
All witnesses – most of them police staff – turned hostile and in 2004 he was acquitted because of lack of evidence and corroboration.
Whom we should hold responsible now for the death of 8 policemen, Principal of a College, Politician, and many more innocent lives.
Police or Leaders? Well, if we think to the root somewhere it’s our fault. We are the one selecting leaders, and tend to be quite while all such stuff takes place.
