the government of Pakistan has been forced to take this decision due to the addictive and waste time of the youth. This addictive game inflicts serious damage on the physical and mental health of young people. As a result, many students and young people are forced to take the wrong steps.
Suicides among Pakistan’s youth have been on the rise in the last few years. The main reason is the Pubg game. So for a long time, the demand to stop the Pubg game was very strong in Pakistan. But now this demand is further fueled by the July 26 incident in Hanjarwal. On July 26, a 16-year-old boy committed suicide by hanging himself from a ceiling fan to miss his Pubg mission, confirmed by pub media. Pakistani police say the boy, identified as Mohammad Zakarya, took the wrong step due to mental depression after failing to complete his mission while playing this online game. Pakistan’s Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has said they have been receiving many more such complaints for a long time, so they have been forced to make this decision.
The Pakistani Government has termed the game as “extremely negative” and a number of cases have also been filed in the Lahore High Court for the negative impact on tin angers of plying Pubg. Pakistan has been given a deadline of 10 July for feedback from all the people on the reopening of the ban game PUBG. And people will give their opinion on this mail address- firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a result of this decision, no one will be able to play Pubg Mobile, Pubg PC and Xbox in Pakistan at present. However, many Pakistani publishers have described the Pakistani government’s decision as unethical. And many have criticized the government for not banning TikTok.
