If you live in Nepal and have a fetish for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Mobile (PUBG Mobile), then you would be able to get that Chicken Dinner you always craved for in the game, after all, this is because the ban on the game has now seemingly been stayed by the country’s Supreme Court.
As per a Himalayan Times report, the Supreme Court has stayed the order issued by the Kathmandu District Court on 10 April; the apex court also reportedly observed that the order banning PUBG Mobile would serve a threat to freedom of people who resort to playing the game for entertainment and recreation.
At this point in time, it is worth noting that there had been complaints about PUBG Mobile being addictive thereby affecting studies of children along with promoting violence.
Now, with the ban being unsustainable, the internet service providers in Nepal should now be allowing PUBG-traffic within the connections offered by them. Also, the Supreme Court is said to have issued, to the government of Nepal, a show-cause notice regarding the ban which has now been stayed.
Here, you should remember that PUBG Mobile has come under a lot of criticism even in India especially with respect to being addictive for children. The country forms a significant chunk of PUBG player database and there are even customized PUBG-inspired tournaments in the country.
Apart from India, the game along with Fortnite could also be banned in the country of Iraq where lawmakers are said to be in favour of imposing restrictions to access the battle-royale titles. Like the above, negative influence on young minds and promotion of violence are reportedly the key concerns in Iraq.
In this regard, do share your thoughts on whether the game deserves to be banned. Or, is it up to the young minds to exercise caution and restraint?
