Indian newspapers, websites not accessible in China

Beijing: While Indian newspapers and TV channels continue to pick up reports about the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) from Chinese Communist propaganda sites, the Indian newspapers and websites cannot be accessed in Beijing now without Virtual Private Network (VPN) server.

According to diplomatic sources in Beijing, the Indian TV channels can be accessed through IP TV as of now.

However, 'ExpressVPN' had not been working in the Communist state for the past two days on iPhone as well as desktops.

VPNs are powerful tools which allow users to overcome blocking of censorship and visit a particular website. But China has created such a technologically advanced firewall that it blocks even the VPNs.

China is infamous for its repressive online censorship and the Xi Jinping government has refined it into an art with high-tech interventions.
