PUBG ban: Final decision to be taken on July 9

The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority is going to decide on July 9 if the ban on online game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) will be extended or removed.

The authority has issued a hearing notice to all respondents. It has allowed them to join the meeting via video link because of the ongoing coronavirus situation.

A temporary ban was imposed on the battle royale game on July 1. The authority said it 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 children.”

Petitions were filed against the ban in the Sindh High Court and the Islamabad High Court. On July 6, the Islamabad High Court sent the petition against the suspension of online game PUBG to the PTA.

PUBG, which has been developed by a South Korean company, is a 2017 survival game in which players are dropped onto an island to battle it out against others.

The multiplayer game allows players from all over the world to compete against each other or in teams. Players attack and kill each other in the game and the more you win, the higher you rank. It has garnered 34.2 million downloads worldwide so far.

As many as two cases of suicide in Lahore have been linked with young adults playing this online game.

On June 20, a 20-year-old took his own life in Saddar Bazaar in North Cantonment. The police said that his parents had stopped him from playing the online game.

Three days later, another suicide was reported in Hanjarwal. Operations DIG Ashfaq Ahmed Khan said that they found the young man’s cell phone in the room and the PUBG app was running on it.

    I agree to some extent that PTA took the right decision but I would like to add that the results of the actions of a few cannot be assumed for the whole .
    Some people have control on their nerves and some don’t . For example some students crack under the burden of educational race and commit suicide whereas most students endure and cope to it . Some people cannot accept their reality and commit suicide and some accept it . The point is that we humans are very complex to be understood . Similarly everyone should repent for their own mistakes not the whole community related to that subject .
    Hence PTA should advice guardians/parents on national television that if you encounter negative change in your children etc while playing PUBG you should guide and council them as a responsible parent/guardian rather than blaming the game for your carelessness .
    OR the whole Esports community will strive .
    Secondly I will add that PTAs decision did nothing because I have 150 plus freinds in PUBG and all of them were online after the BAN using VPNs and other means . If an individual can play PUBG it means he/she has access to internet and an able gadget , which makes it understandable that he/she can download and use VPN , but ofcourse PTA lacks adequate knowledge .

    Pakistan can earn a good fortune and precious Foreign exchange and tourism by legalising Prostitution and Alcohol. We can also earn thru helping people exporting narcotics. If not, why hazardous games like PUBG or Blue Whales are allowed in name of generating foreign exchange?

    I typed so many comments but they didn’t showed up so i was saying that PUBG is not only game by which people r compelled to do suicide people do suicide because they are unemployed so their family should be banned people die in car accident so cars should be banned people die because of harassment so harassment should be banned people commit suicide because of study pressure universities,colleges,schools should be banned i mean some people commit suicide because they are done with their lives so life should be ban am i right or not i think u guys don’t want to see Pakistan successful Actually u guys r not guys i mean u people who banned PUBG are unpar gawar jahil yes i wrote these word and i m proud on this u should unlock PUBG Because we r youth and youth is the power we give you votes your seat is in danger sir 🙂
