Shots Fired! India Takes First Step to Officially Block Chinese Phone Apps

Chinese companies have long been using both hardware and software to monitor Christians. BTJ has had to take several steps to counteract these monitoring measures. Many BTJ pastors refuse to travel with a phone altogether because of the security risks.

Several governments around the world are quickly learning what BTJ missionaries have known for a while – Chinese products most likely have backdoors to monitor the users.

In a bold move, India decided to ban 59 Chinese mobile apps on grounds of national security. In a move that is sure to anger China, India has ordered all phone companies to block the applications.  A statement by the information technology ministry said that the apps had been blocked, “since in view of the information available, they are engaged in activities prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defense of India, security of state and public order.”

This decision comes three weeks after Google removed a free app that allowed users to remove all Chinese apps from their phone.

This is one of the reasons why BTJ has launched a private social media platform called DingDash. It is a social media platform that respects your rights to privacy, does not share your information with others, and allows you to connect with Christians all around the world.

Eugene started working for Back to Jerusalem in the year 2000 after a backroom deal involving Chinese spies, the NRA, Swiss bankers, and a small group of Apostolic Christians that only baptize in Jesus’ name.
