PUBG Mobile on Android and iOS is among the most popular video games in India right now. And it’s this popularity that has actually landed it in a spot of trouble with the Jammu and Kashmir Students Association. The trainee body has actually asked the Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Naik to ban the video game immediately. It claims that PUBG Mobile is exceptionally addicting and has led to poor outcomes for the current class X and XII board examinations. In truth, it went as far as to liken PUBG Mobile to drugs.
” The game should have been prohibited immediately after the poor efficiency of 12th and 10th class results but still we haven’t seen any action,” said Deputy Chairman Raqif Makhdoomi according to a report on Pristine Kashmir. “The dependency to this video game has become more concerning than dependency to drugs as we get to see children 24 hours on the mobile phones and playing the game and not doing anything. We request the guv administration to immediately prohibit the video game.”
Jammu and Kashmir Students Association Chairman Abrar Ahmad Bhat termed PUBG Mobile as a “future spoiler”, the report claims, highly appealing for a ban as soon as possible.
This isn’t the very first time PUBG Mobile has actually discovered itself in the spotlight for the incorrect factors. Late in 2015, a viral post claimed that the game was banned in Mumbai. Though it was rapidly exposed as an obvious fake.
That said, requires banning PUBG Mobile appear rather severe because it fails to think about other aspects of the problem such as students having unlimited smartphone use to begin with. Considered that Google has integrated digital health tools to restrict mobile phone use on Android, it’s apparent that the awareness of other options to prevent circumstances like this isn’t where it need to be.
