A petition was filed on Monday in the Lahore High Court to ban video game PUBG. The court then ordered the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority to decide on the matter within six weeks.

Petitioner’s lawyer Bilal Riaz Sheikh moved the court after finding some features of PUBG “problematic”. “The game has a negative impact on children. They are becoming more ruthless and violent,” he said.

He asked the court to order the removal of PUBG from Google Play Store. The court said it has forwarded petition over the game to the PTA multiple times, but the authority never responds.

The court, previously, disposed of a similar petition that asked for a ban on the game.
