TikTok has been an addictive app of late across the world. It is so popular in India that out of half a billion users, more than 200 million users are known to be Indian and the majority of them are all kids and teenagers.
TikTok is an app that allows you to share short clips and the idea is to use dance or lip sync to ‘background music or movie dialogues’ to create the most viral clip.
The TikTok vs YouTube war sparked a controversy across the country and people became angry when CarryMinati’s viral video was pulled down from the platform. Since then TikTok has been facing the ire of Indian users. Following this, its rating has fallen from 4 stars to 2 stars and it continues to fall.
#DeleteTikTok and #banTikTok trend on social media, which go to show that Indians do not want to use TikTok anymore.
Recently, a violent clash took place at Galwan Valley in eastern Ladakh in which at least 20 Indian soldiers, including a colonel, were martyred, while 43 Chinese soldiers were killed in the scuffle with Indian soldiers.
Following this, people have thronged the streets in the country to protest against China over the clashes at LAC in Ladakh. They are shouting anti-China slogans and calling for a boycott of Chinese products and goods.
