Why India banned 59 apps including the wildly popular TikTok over a geopolitical dispute with China

India banned 59 Chinese-owned apps on June 29, including TikTok. The ban follows a border skirmish between India and China in the disputed territory of Ladakh on June 15, and escalates geopolitical tensions between the two countries.
