Yesterday on 1st July of 2020 a news arrived ‘PUBG Mobile Banned in Pakistan’ This news just arrived the next day when India banned 59 Chinese Apps on 30th June 2020.
Firstly when I read that title of Temberoraly Suspend PUBG in Pakistan then I thaught that Pakistan govt is also in the process to boycott the Chinese apps.
Well if you are confused about PUBG Mobile is a Chinese app or not?? – You must read this article.
But later reading the news in-depth I realized this case was about “a 16-year-old boy had committed suicide in the Hanjarwal area by hanging himself from a ceiling fan of his house when he “missed his mission” in PUBG, Mid-day.com had reported.”

The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) said it “has received numerous complaints against PUBG wherein it is stated that the game is addictive, wastage of time and poses a serious negative impact on the physical and psychological health of the Children”. thenews.com.pk
Taking all these complaints into consideration and the act by this 16-year-old child PTA temporarily banned PUBG Mobile in Pakistan saying it is an addictive Game and the addiction can harm anybody; until the next court hearing that is scheduled on 9th July 2020.
Let’s see what happens on the next court hearing and hope good things for PUBG Mobile in any country. I know this is an addictive game but, there are lots of things we are surrounded by that can harm us and are addictive in nature.
It’s our responsibility to keep those things away from immature children and guide them properly about their physical as well as mental health.
