Iraq:
In 2019, Iraqi banned PUBG, Fortnite, Blue Whale, and similar online video games in the country after claiming the games caused social and psychological issues to the public. The country’s parliament said that that the games are harmful to society and a potential national security threat.

Issuing a statement, the Centre said that these apps are prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, the security of the state and public order.

The fresh move to ban the 118 apps comes amid new border tensions with China in Eastern Ladakh. The Centre said it received numerous complaints from various sources, including several reports about the misuse of some mobile apps available on Android and iOS platforms for stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users’ data to servers outside India.

“The compilation of these data, its mining and profiling by elements hostile to national security and defence of India, which ultimately impinges upon the sovereignty and integrity of India, is a matter of very deep and immediate concern which requires emergency measures,” the Centre said in the statement.

Earlier on June 29, the government had banned 59 Chinese apps, including hugely popular TikTok and UC Browser, saying they were prejudicial to sovereignty, integrity and security of the country.

The June ban was followed by blocking of 47 more Chinese apps that were clones and variants of the ones banned earlier. On Wednesday, the government said the Electronics and IT Ministry, invoking its powers under section 69A of the Information Technology Act along with relevant rules and in view of the emergent nature of threats, has decided to block the 118 mobile apps.





The centre said that the apps have been blocked in view of the information available they are engaged in activities which are prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, the security of the state and public order.
