PUBG temporary ban stays as PTA still indecisive

The fate of the online game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) hangs in the balance as the Pakistan Telecommunication failed on Thursday to come up with a final decision on its ban.

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.”

The authority held a meeting with people who have challenged the ban in high courts, PUBG counsellors, and civil society members. It, however, decided that it needs more time to make a decision on extending the ban or removing it.

It has asked people who want the ban removed to send emails on their reservations by July 10. People who want to share their opinion on the matter with the PTA have been encouraged to provide feedback on consultation-pubg@pta.gov.pk.

The decision will be made in a few days, confirmed the authority’s chairperson.

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.

            Please if u do not play the game how can u say it effects the mind of people i also play PUBG and study nothing happens to me and how is it wastage of time when people are earning a lot of money by that game?Next time before saying anything make sure to confirm is it true or not.PTA have a foolish reason to ban PUBG because of suicide cases which are fake so kindly make sure to type correct statement.Thank you

    if they claim that pubg is a danger for children, these parents should be banned from having any children as they clearly can teach their children whats real and whats imaginary. they are not raising their children, they are just keeping them alive.

    Dear Representative PTA!!

    My Recommendation is to please unban the game with immediate effect.
    There is no solid reason to BAN the game, Especially since lockdown, Community especially Youth is more involved in this game and they want to spend their time in a positive manner.

    There could be multiple reasons of sucuide committed by those two boys. No Comprehensive survey till date is conducted nor any linked proof is available to ban the game.

    Thank You…

    Of little children are out of control it is the parents fault.what a stupid reason you have given.what is the mistake of youngsters and adults who play the game to earn money?the mentality of your kind of people puts the future in danger and snatches our freedom.

  27. Getrekt  July 11, 2020 3:33 pm/ Reply

    If PUBG is to be banned then it won’t just be banned for “children”, it will be banned for everyone, including adults who make money and just enjoy the game in their free time. The mental well being of children are entirely up to their parents, if their child is misbehaving because of a certain app, and that app were to get banned, they would just shift towards another app.
    Speaking of useless activities, watching sports, dramas, and movies also come into this category of wasting society’s time, for example take a show for example called “Bulbulay”, it’s a mindless show where literally nothing happens except for a couple of dead jokes, compare this to a game, where we actually have to use our brains and our problem solving skills to out-do our opponents in a battle of wits and skill. Now tell me what should be banned…
