It has happened for surveillance ahead of a big Communist Party gathering next month.

Not a surprise  but China has been taking  such steps earlier also when they banned Facebook from their mainland.

Facebook now can only operate partially in China with strict restrictions.

But this is a big blow for their massive amount of WhatsApp users who want to access this popular messaging service!

According to many,these main objective between these bans is to  restrict the nation from the Western influence which is much more open and can be organized against the Chinese government.

This happens off and on but the only question is for how long the common Chinese people will tolerate this?
