Standards needed for apps

I am also shaken by the fact that Chinese are setting up live streaming networks in India and paying women and girls to entertain men using their apps by stripping and vulgar acts.

The reason I am posting this article and Shalini’s post here is because I want to ask members and BIS why should there not be standards for apps. This is the new economy and era and our institutions need to ramp up and address 21st century challenges with 21st century solutions. Please do comment. Its important.

Below is the post from Shalini Agarwal in Surakshit Bharat asking for action.

Need circles to take up this important cause
As a parent having children about to enter teenage, I am appalled at what these chinese apps are doing to our next generation.

80% of the children in my 12 year old girl’s class are using sites and apps to record videos and share with each other.

This paper article attached by Sarita says Chinese app Bigo Live has set up a sprawling network of 10,000 paid hosts in small towns and villages of India - many of them are young women who dance, sing, strip or talk sex with millions of Indian men.

What kind of businesses are we letting therr chinese set up in India? LocalCircles and members of these circles if you dont take up this issue and get these apps blocked and banned, no one else will. By the time Govt wakes up it would be too very late. more

We are heading a destructive world. some where some one need to be stopped. more  
Our young generation is getting addicted and ruing their brain. The government must stop this nonsense to save children's brain. more  
The government should take the necessary action immediately. They have to block these sites. Youngsters, whether girls or boys are innocent and just as they fall prey to drugs and drinks, today they fall prey to bad apps. But what is the government doing. We had argued about blocking bad and porno sites months ago but nothing concrete has taken place because the political scene is only about grabbing power through the elections and not for the people or by the people. more  
What an important point you have brought Mr. Sankara Subramanian. The Indian Government should note this important point .

Particularly when the Pulwama attack happening despite of the ever alert Indian Intelligence department .

1and 1/2 Decades neglect on Vigilance and Control Systems ruined many Fields. It is why BJP preferred America collaboration in Technology and Defence Sectors AND IS AT NATIONAL INTEREST.
NDA SHALL RETALIATE OPPOSITION CRITICISM opting same National interest even securing President OR SC cooperation. more  
It is mainly due to lack of guidance, particularly from mothers to the teenage girls and the unawareness / repercussion in their social life. It is now widely adopted to have a boy friend and girl friend and unrestricted mixing. Girls needs to be given freedom, but they have to be closely guided to avoid or to exceed certain limits. more  
None follows the guiding principle of Precaution IS BETTER THAN CURE. more
