PUBG Mobile is the most papular mobile game in the world. The company had revealed that it had crossed over 40 million daily active users. However, the popular battle royale game was slapped with a ban in several countries. Here is the list of countries where Pabji has been banned.
The reason authorities had to step in to ban the PUBG Mobile game is because of the increasing number of reports blaming PUBG for negligence, falling results of students, and even violence in some cases.
While the game’s user base has been appreciative of the game, the same cannot be said about parents and authorities who have on multiple occasions spoken against the game, going so far as to advocate a ban on the game.
The Government of India has banned more 118 Chinese mobile applications list, including PUBG Mobile, PUBG Mobile Lite, Baidu, WeChat to counter the threat posed by these applications to the country’s “sovereignty and security”.
Pakistan was also on the list but recently Pakistan unbanned this mobile game. The Islamabad High Court (IHC) had ordered in favor of lifting the ban on the popular game Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) last week, but it has not been put into effect yet.
THE CAUSE OF PUBG MOBILE BEING BANNED IN INDIA
There were 118 applications that were banned by the Indian government in the midst of provocation problems with the Chinese State in Ladakh. 118 banned applications are applications from China, which also includes PUBG Mobile.
According to the ministry of technology in India, these applications are a disadvantage that has an impact on India’s sovereignty and integrity.
These applications are also said to cause problems to state security and public order in “This decision is a target that must be achieved for the safety of the state, security, and sovereignty of the Indian cyberspace,” said the Indian IT Ministry.
