Previously, we have reported that Bangladesh Government was discussing the prohibition of two mobile games: Free Fire and PUBG Mobile. And now, it's official. The Bangladesh High Court has directed the country's Government to suspend these two titles for at least three months.

A few months ago, the Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission, the Ministry of Education, and the Ministry of Home Affairs filed reports on PUBG Mobile and Free Fire's adverse effects on the demographic. They proposed that these mobile games created addiction among teenagers and young adults alike. Hence, the authority recommends the discontinuation of both titles in Bangladesh.

Two of the world's favorite mobile games now stand under another possible legal case. Their popularity among the younger generation has sparked concerns regarding their negative impact. PUBG Mobile and Free Fire are now viewed as a cause of violence, anxiety, and even lack of concentration.

To support this claim, Bangladesh Supreme Court layers - Mohammad Humayun Kabir Pallab and Barrister Mohammad Kawser reportedly sent a notice to the government on 19th June. They demand a ban on PUBG MObile and Free Fire, as well as online live-streaming platforms and video sharing applications.

As per GemWire, they believe games and applications like PUBG Mobile, Free Fire, and TikTok need strict regulation. As they received no response from the authorities, the lawyers then approached the Bangladesh High Court. They filed a petition to seek a ban on all of the applications above.

PUBG Mobile And Free Fire Share Uncertain Future

This wasn't the first time these two titles come across legal issues. Both PUBG Mobile and Free Fire don't earn positive views from politicians and social activists.

Last year, PUBG Mobile was permanently banned in India. It took the game nearly a year to make its comeback but under an entirely new identity.

This is a dark time for both PUBG Mobile and Free Fire.

A few weeks earlier, a Parliamentarian in Nepal also urged the Government to ban Free Fire and PUBG Mobile from the country. During his speech at the 'Zero Hour' in Nepal's House of Representatives, he raised his concern about possible mental health problems in the demographic, especially in children.

On top of that, this is not the first time that PUBG Mobile has faced such resistance from Bangladeshi authorities. Last year, the game went through a brief ban in October. The reason was also the growing concerns around its negative impact on youth.
