The Swadeshi Jagran Manch (SJM) has written to PM Narendra Modi asking that the government create barriers for Chinese companies operating in India, reports News18. Chinese companies should also not be allowed to log Indian user data, SJM said. This is because China refuses to ‘designate Masood Azhar as a global terrorist’, after Azhar’s Jaish-e-Mohammad terror attack killed over 40 Indian soldiers in Pulwama, Kashmir. The SJM said that Chinese companies were making profits from Indian users and that India should not support China’s economic gain since it ‘supports such terrorists.’ It also raised concerns about the increasing host of social media and ecommerce companies from China which had Indian users. The SJM said that India should “curtail the operations” of Chinese companies in India in order to enforce national security Note that, in December last year, SJM’s research found that Indian users were placing over 200,000 orders on Chinese ecommerce companies daily. It added that these companies were delivering via courier and postal gift shipments, violating Indian laws related to payment gateways, custom duties and GST, and harming the Indian MSME trade market. Further, it said that China was promoting its own small industry through subsidized delivery via China Post. It said that since these companies were not registered in India, there was no grievance redressal mechanism and that there was a risk of ‘hazardous, prohibited, unsafe or substandard goods arriving in India.’ *** Note that SJM is not opposed to only Chinese companies doing business in India.
