Most of the people might have been heard of the online game PUBG- PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds which is being played by more than 50Million users world wide. The game deals with the concept of gathering 100 players to a location , and the last man standing will be considered the winner.
The online Battle Royale game, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds or PUBG is no stranger to being called addictive, or harmful or something else negative. There has been a number of incidents in India and other countries with the addiction to the game and the mental wellness, where state governments have taken steps asking to ban the game. There have been other incidents such as that fitness trainer from Jammu who injured himself because he lost a game in PUBG, sounds pathetic right. Now the Surat district administration on Thursday imposed a ban on PUBG. The main reason for the imposing on the ban was because of the increase in violent behavior among the children and the youth, and they were also addicted to the game. The addiction not only leads to change in behavior of the people , but also affecting their studies, work and other daily activities. In India, another incident happened like a man divorced his 4 month pregnant wife for not allowing him to play PUBG. 🙂
According to the administration, students were found performing poorly in studies because of their addiction to the game.
But on the other hand, there are students who appear on the Online challenges and earning lot of money as prize. Many sponsors are conducting PUBG events on all major cities with whooping prize amounts.
According to online media reports, the circular to ban the battle royale game has been sent to a number of primary education officers of the district in order to put together measures which would reduce the number of cases which are coming from PUBG Mobile addiction and to enforce a ban on the mobile game.
In a recommendation issued by Jagruti Pandya, Chairperson of Gujarat Child rights body, to the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) in order to ban PUBG Mobile in the state. According to officials, the game has affected a number of young people.
Jagruti Pandya was quoted by PTI stating this, “The NCPCR had sent a letter to all the states and recommended a ban on the game. All the states are required to implement it. Looking at the negative effects of the game, we had recently sent a letter to the state government recommending a ban on the game.”
The chances of PUBG Ban to a particular state or administration seems not to be practical, as there are infinite entry loops to the GAME.
But our question is, Is it BAN really going to happen??
