By on June 30, 2020

Shein app, a business-to-consumer (B2C) fashion brand, founded in 2008 and which primarily catered to women and girls, found a mention in the long list of mobile applications that have been banned by the Indian government.

The fashion brand app, which was amongst the 59 Chinese apps that are set to go off the Indian market was collectively termed as “engaged in activities which is prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, the security of state and public order.”

Subsequently, Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) has invoked its power under section 69A of the Indian Information Technology Act, 2000, which specifies “Procedure and Safeguards for Blocking of Access of Information by Public”.

The move comes days after twenty Indian Army personnel, including a colonel, were killed in clashes with Chinese troops in the Galwan Valley in eastern Ladakh on Monday night, the biggest military confrontation between India and China in over five decades.

As Shein came under the scanner, Twitter users bid goodbye to their go-to app with memes.
