Surprised ?? but you read that right PUBG mobile is banned in China. The reason for this was the amount of bloodshed in the game. As a solution to this problem, the company launched a separate version of the game called Game For Peace. The new application has similar maps, but lacks bloodshed. In this game, if a player is killed, instead of seeing red shots, they are green. In addition, the dead body will not lie in a pool of blood, but instead will wave and fly away.
Citing privacy concerns from Indian users, GoI banned the PUBG mobile application. According to the government, Pubg mobile’s parent company was involved in activities that undermine the country’s sovereignty, integrity, defense and security.
In Nepal, PUBG was banned after a PIL was filed by the Metropolitan Crime Division (MCD) to ban the game and the Kathmandu court’s verdict was in favor of MCD. The PIL said the game had adverse effects on children. After the ban was enacted, multiple petitions were filed with the Supreme Court of Nepal, which subsequently overturned the decision of the Kathmandu Court.
The Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA) banned PUBG after receiving several complaints, possibly from the parents of Pubg fans, that the game was too addictive and had adverse health effects on children’s physical and psychological health. But the PTA had to lift the ban on the game after several petitions were filed with Islamabad’s Supreme Court.
Another neighboring country of India that has banned PUBG Mobile is Afghanistan. The Afghan Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (ATRA) announced the temporary suspension of PUBG Mobile in mid-December last year due to social and security concerns. The move was taken following complaints and user impacts received by the regulatory body after consulting several ministries and industry experts.
