Fawad Chaudhry’s Argument Works, IT Minister Says He’s Against PUBG Ban

IT Minister, Syed Aminul Haque, has voiced his support in favor of Fawad Chaudhry, who had asked him to end the ban on PUBG Mobile. Aminul Haque has said that he is against any restrictions that hinder the growth of any industry.

The MQM lawmaker, however, said that the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) comes under the Cabinet Division and that IT Ministry has nothing to do with the ban.

PTA temporarily banned the game on 1st July, terming the game dangerous for youngsters as it incites violence and has already taken a number of lives due to suicides.


Fawad Chaudhry Urges Minister to Unban PUBG Immediately

He said that only the Cabinet Division can answer any questions regarding the ban. Earlier, the game enthusiasts started a campaign on social media, demanding stakeholders to answer as to why the game was banned in the first place. Twitter users tagged notable names including Imran Khan, and Fawad Chaudhry as well as PTA to know their opinion on the matter.

Federal Minister for Science and Technology, Fawad Chaudhry, said that he is against the ban as it is killing the tech industry. The battle royale game lovers are contesting that the ban has destroyed the e-gaming industry and a number of content makers have to resort to other livelihood options.

  • I am kinda glad Fawad Chaudry as Science and technology minister. We need to go and show him more projects that have no funding right now.

  • I am sorry? What kind of progress will games bring? Both of these litters are talking about things beyond their caliber. Business Insider says esports will be worth only $1.5 billion by 2023. So, again, why brutus why?
    On one hand, they are slapping taxes on ride hailing services that ACTUALLY create jobs, and on the other, disagree with useless waste of time games? How much do online game publishers pay to our govt? Zilch.
    Its the smartphone manufacturers that are greasing palms of politicians to try to whitelist PUBG and mitigate against more bans.

  • It is not about PUBG ban but it is about Egaming. Egaming is the future and why America, Europe and Middle east is not banning this game but we are banning this game?. So Older Pakistani generation must learn new technologies and embrace the new reality. There are more violent games than PUBG (infact hundreds of them). So will you ban them as well?. Also it is my request to the General who is now heading PTA that please go back to barracks or just retire. Please leave these matters to the Civilians. Army has a different mentality of banning and erasing and this does not work in normal government matters.
