Pakistan Bans Popular Mobile Game ‘PUBG’

While India banned 59 Chinese apps it spared the popular mobile game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds aka PUBG. However, its notorious neighbor and surprisingly China’s all-weather friend Pakistan has banned the game. As per reports from Times Now the Islamic Republic nation took the decision for the children’s benefit. The ban is temporary as of now.

The countries authorities have banned the popular game because of its addictive nature and adverse health effects on children’s physical and psychological health. This is something which has been talked in India as well where demands to ban the game were backed by similar concerns. However, India avoided this action even while scrapping the 59 Chinese apps.

The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) made the decision official through its tweet. “In view of complaints received from different segments of society, PTA has decided to temporarily suspend the PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) game“, read PTA’s tweet. The agency is meanwhile gathering feedback from the public by July 10 on whether the game should remain temporarily suspended or restored for players in Pakistan. The ban comes at a time when PUBG had recently released the ‘Gameplay Management System’ in a bid to promote healthy gaming behaviors and remind players to take a break.
