Several TV celebs paid tribute to the 20 Indian Army soldiers who were martyred during India-China border clash in Ladakh’s Galwan Valley. Karanvir Bohra was also one of them who paid his homage on Instagram to the martyrs. However, he went one step further and mentioned that he is also going to uninstall TikTok as he finds it unnecessary.
He wrote, “Sending prayers and love to the martyred soul and their families. And now one by one I'm going to start disassociating with #madeinchina maal. Starting with @tiktok Thank you @indiatiktok for all the love you have shown me, but this is necessary. Jai hind.” However, his action received mixed reactions; some applauded his move while there were a few who trolled him.
Karanvir did not take things lying down and soon tweeted slamming his trolls and wrote, “Just to put the record straight, I'm not uninstalling @TikTok_IN "to feel patriotic" as some might say...But sometimes you do things coz it's the right thing to do (sic)."

His tweet could also be a sly dig on Nakuul Mehta’s tweet who had written, “I'm installing Tik Tok, finally. So that...I can UNINSTALL it and feel patriotic (sic).”
I'm installing Tik Tok, finally.
I can UNINSTALL it and feel patriotic.

On June 15, 20 army personnel including a colonel were killed in a violent clash by the Chinese army at Ladakh’s Galwan Valley. This was the biggest Indo-China military confrontation in over five decades. Previously, renowned teacher Sonam Wangchuk has asked Indians to uninstall TikTok and abstain from using Chinese goods in order to cripple China economically.
