    LOL Star Wars is a good movie and the new one is also very interesting where the new knight is actually a women. I also havent downloaded TikTok, I dont know why I should do that. Watching music and interesting news in Youtube is already enough for entertainment.

    Selling go Microsoft is the only way to save Tik Tok.. Basically, Tik Tok wants to become a US citizen instead of a Chinese one so that it can cater to 2 of the its most important free markets, other than China where people don't have freedom to choose apps anyway.

    Chinese law is biased towards controlling, censoring and spying on people at a massive scale.. There is no way any free, modern, leading company will comply with these laws.. Only 2nd or 3rd place apps will sacrifice morals to get Chinese yuan.

    Banned ? Good move, but I thought he was interested in having an American company take over TikTok's US operations.

    No. China is the major target of America propaganda machine. China has to adopt special measures to control media, especially for those from USA. Indians will never understand what a hostile international environment China is in.

    I don't have much technical knowledge. But there are millions of poeple who know the technical issues. I never heard any mainstream media or famous professional people said American apps are safer than Chinese apps.

    It is the result of aggressive lone wolf diplomacy, blatant expansionist policies, bullying neighbors, debt trapping small weak nations, and complete disregard, even celebration for the death and devastating caused in the world with Wuhan virus. Ban on Tik Tok is just the beginning of a global movement to boycott all Chinese software. Chinese products have also seen a fall in demand globally in the last 3 months. Exports will steadily decline once the Wuhan virus is behind us.

    See. All the shits you said are American propaganda. India is a far worse country in term of human right than China. For example, India, is a big rice exporter even though millions Indians are starving. China government buys soybean from all over the world to feed livestock so that Chinese have enough meat to eat. USA never cares Indians human right. All its attention is on China.

    Its not US propaganda, it's freely available information based on facts and actions conducted by Chinese which are well recorded. Don't tell me there are no re education camps in xinjiang, or nation wise face recognition CCTV in operation, or Alipay point system.. Or no freedom to criticize government. China is just trying to bully India because we are not supporting your trade war and you are not happy that some factories are moving to India.

    There are many varieties of rice in India. The cheap, small grains rice are for poor people who can buy this type of rice for less than 50 cents a Kilogram.. Much rations are also provided for free to poor people. There are many NGOs supporting the hungry. What we export, the poor cannot afford anyway.. Mostly long grain basmati rice which is a luxury product for poor.

    Except some people told some stories, where the solid proof of education camps in Xinjiang? All propaganda products.

    A responsible country should not export rice as long as its people are in starvation. Indian and China are similar in population. But China is a big grain importer. Even China grain yield is much bigger than India.
