The Indian government has banned 59 of China’s famous apps. There are many such apps in the banned list which is very popular among Indian users, but users are quite happy with this decision of the government. But in the meantime, a strange thing that came up was that along with the banned apps on Twitter, PUBG and Zoom apps also started trending. People on Twitter have a question as to why the PUBG and Zoom apps were abandoned after 59 Chinese apps were banned and why they were not banned.
why the government has not banned PUBG and Zoom video conferencing app.
PUBG is not China’s game
PUBG is Chinese not South Korean online video game. It has been made by Battleground, a subsidiary of BlueWhale. The game was initially created by Brendan, who was influenced by the 2000 Japanese film Battle Royal. Initially, the Chinese government also refused to play the game in China, but later it was introduced in China through a popular video game publisher, Tencent.
In return, the Chinese Tencent company had to be given a stake in PUBG. Only after this, PUBG got permission from the Chinese government and that is why people connect it to China.
Zoom video calling app is American
The Zoom app is an American company with its headquarter in San Jose, California. The company’s large workforce works in China, on which questions were raised about surveillance and censorship. A few days ago the company’s CEO Eric Yuan made it clear that he was an American company, not a Chinese, and had no link with the Chinese government.
