China may apply cybersecurity law to ban US tech firms

The South China Morning Post said in a report on Friday that a new series of laws on cybersecurity were being introduced by Chinese authorities which could cause tech firms from the US to face extensive bans in China. The report said China’s Cyberspace Administration released a draft version of Cybersecurity Review Measures on Friday which would require all major information technology shareholders in the country to give their evaluation on the national security risks associated with purchase of foreign products and services. The publication of the draft law comes amid an intensified trade war between China and the US. The two countries have imposed repeated import bans on each other's certain goods and services. US President Donald Trump issued a recent executive order in which he gave some far-reaching powers to authorities to ban the export of hi-tech products and services to “foreign adversaries” that are deemed a national security risk. Experts said China’s new laws on cybersecurity could be a harsh response to Washington’s efforts to have access to higher levels of technology. The announcement of new measures also comes amid a row between Beijing and Washington on activities of Chinese telecommunication company Huawei. Based on Trump’s last week order, the firm could face restrictions in accessing certain American products, including chips manufactured by Intel and Qualcomm or operating system used on its mobile phones which is produced by Google. China’s draft law on cybersecurity will remain online for public feedback until June 24. It comes as part of a wider review to existing Chinese laws which had been passed in June 2017.

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save ThemDonate here: Gofundme: Paypal: **************************************************************************************************************************************** As'salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, Dear viewers! As some of you are aware, it’s a couple of months that YouTube has updated its policies by setting the algorithms so that it targets Islamic content and channels. They removed so many Islamic channels from their partner program while almost none of those channels violated any of their policies. With this they try to fade out the Islamic Dawah. Same thing happened to our channel too… It is the third time that our channel is being targeted by YouTube. First they have banned a video worldwide for couple of hours, then they deleted a video with the claim that it violated their terms and conditions while it wasn’t the case... and recently they have demonetized our channel (the only source that could cover a part of our production costs) again by claiming that our content is violating their terms and conditions while in reality we have never promote violence, or produce inappropriate content. It seems like they want to demotivate us so that we stop producing Islamic contents. But by the will of Allah (swt) that will never happen! Indeed production of a professional content needs huge costs and time. A lot of efforts (e.g. providing topics, doing research, providing footage, making narration, recording, graphics, editing & etc...) goes into making only one video. And we alone are not capable of covering the whole costs since we have no more financial source. Therefore we ask you to join and take part in our dawah mission and support our channel in order to continue with even more amazing contents and to help us educate people around the world about the beautiful religion (ISLAM) and make them come closer to Allah (swt). Currently we are unable to create any patreon page due to some problems. But you can donate to the below gofundme and paypal links: For those brothers/sisters who have problem with the donation campaigns for Islamic channels: Just know that Allah is enough for them, it’s about your responsibility for your religion. They didn’t make these channels to make money out of them, for sure if they were looking for money, they would choose some other ways which would make way more money for them. But they chose to serve for their religion. They all try their best and have their own way of presenting the message of Islam… they face huge problems while making those contents which help you and your children. Be with them Support them to spread the truth And be the cause for guidance of masses In Sha Allah In sha Allah your donation will be counted as (Sadaqah Jaariyah) and will get continues rewards since these contents will reach to millions of viewers by the passage of time. If you can't support us financially, please make Dua for us. Jazzak Allahu Khairan, Rational Believer
