China unhappy with TikTok ban

China has expressed concerns over the Nepal government’s decision to ban popular video app TikToK. On Nov 14, the government took the decision to ban it stating that it is disturbing social harmony and family structures. In a meeting with Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal a few days back, Chinese Ambassador to Nepal Chen Song, expressed the displeasure over the TikTok ban, sources said, he also expressed concerns whether there are geopolitical factors behind such an abrupt decision of Nepal government. In response, Dahal made it clear that the government was forced to shut down TikTok due to the misuse of this app to inflame anti-social contents.

Dahal further added that the government is in favor of regulation of this app instead of complete ban, and working on it. According to sources, the Chinese side is not satisfied with the Dahal’s clarification. TikTok is a wholly owned subsidiary of Chinese technology firm ByteDance Ltd, which appoints its executives. 

TikTok has already expressed its displeasure over the government’s decision. More than dozens petitions have been filed in the Supreme Court. The SC has sought clarification from the government regarding the government's move.
