Why Ban PUBG?
The PTA claimed that the game is endangering lives of young people and children by increasing the level of anxiety and depression due to its addictive nature. It also has a potential negative impact on children’s physical and psychological health.
Moreover, the spate of suicides led to the government taking the step to ban PUBG. Around three suicides were linked to the PUBG in Pakistan. The excessive and devastating impact of the game on youngsters which lead them to kill themselves made the PTA ban the online game!
