After the Indian Government banned 59 Chinese apps citing security reasons, China reacted by banning of the Indian media in China. None of the Indian websites can be opened in China, even via VPN.

DNPA (Digital News Publishers Association), which is an industry body consisting of top media publishers, has now urged the Government of India to look into this seriously, and extend the ban to all the news apps/platforms invested by china or Chinese investors to ensure that biased information does not reach Indian users.

Pawan Agarwal, Chairman, DNPA, said, “This is the time that we should consider upholding India’s security and sovereignty as the utmost priority.”

Similarly, Shailesh Gupta, President, Indian Newspaper Society, on behalf of its members, stated that the action of the Chinese government to restrict access of Indian newspapers and media websites is uncalled for and even the access through VPN (Virtual Private Network) server has been blocked by creating a technologically advanced firewall.

Gupta strongly urged the Government of India to expeditiously take steps to ban all kinds of access to Chinese media in India and call off collaborations/ investments made by Chinese in Indian media companies forthwith.
