11-Year Old Moves To Court To Ban PUBG
PUBG is all the rage these days. The Battle Royale game is very popular in India and mostly among kids. But it looks like some kids are so tired of playing it that they want a permanent ban to be put on PUBG. 11 year Ahad Nizam, a resident of Mumbai, has filed a Public Interest Litigation(PIL) in the Bombay High Court. In his PIL, Ahad seeks a ban to be put on the game in Maharashtra.
Speaking to DNA, Ahad says “After playing for a few days, I began to feel low and negative, so I stopped. This is why I have appealed to the government”. With the help of his mother, Ahad wrote to Chief Minister, Education Minister, Home Minister, the Ministry of Electronics and IT. And also the Medical Council of India, city police commissioner, Microsoft Corporation India Pvt Ltd and Changhan Kim, of The PUB-G Corporation.
PUBG Ban: A History
This is not the first time someone is asking a ban to be put to the game. Earlier, the Jammu and Kashmir Students Association asked the Governor Satya Pal Naik to ban the game. No action was taken since. Gujarat government had distributed circulars a week ago. These directed district authorities to ensure a ban on the online multiplayer game.
Ever since the game has been called for a ban, many such cases have surfaced. Whether or not the government sees it as a threat, is yet to be known. But one thing is certain, this is not the last time we are hearing the news of PUBG ban.
