Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) is one of the absolute favorite games of Pakistani teenagers right now and its ban by the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has resulted in a massive outcry by game lovers.
The news of PUBG’s ban came as a surprise for many, however, there were talks of the ban due to the rising cases of suicides over the game. PTA received a number of complaints from the parents which is a major reason behind the ban. The regulatory authority notified of a temporary ban on the game on 1st July and Lahore High Court has scheduled a hearing on 9th July regarding the matter.
PTA has also asked the public to provide feedback through [email protected] by 10th July. While the PUBG lovers are sending in their emails on the said address, they have also started a trend on Twitter which calls for lifting the ban on their favorite game.
#unbanpubginpakistan is currently trending on Pakistani Twitter as a large number of people are sharing their viewpoints on the matter. Let’s have a look at what they are saying:
Baning pubg is not a solution there is alot of people who are earning with pubg… Police gave us a statement that 16 year old boy commit suicide coz he missed a mission…. I thought about it alot but still.. it doesn't make any sense.. #UNBANPUBG#unbanpubginpakistan

This ban need to be lifted bcoz alot of students commit suicide every year bcoz of mental pressure, overburden they face from colleges universities so ban those institutions also bcoz they are the reason of suicidally attempts. Totally shitty decision.#unbanpubginpakistan

The ones that are supporting the ban are the ones who still think that our education system is the best kids are not humans also there's no such things as mental disorders for kids and depression is fake FYI these people are wrong and dumb #unbanpubginpakistan #UNBANPUBG #PUBGM
