Amid the controversy around the PUBG Mobile ban in Pakistan, the Federal Minister for Science and Technology of the nation Fawad Chaudhry made headlines for showing his aversion to the ban. In fact, Mr. Chaudhry took his point of view to Twitter, saying that it was not a smart move for the government to block the game out of the country.

According to him, Pakistan will have to pay an unmeasurable cost while putting a ban on any games or applications. In addition to that, this kind of decision will discourage the development of the tech industry inside the country. He took PUBG Mobile as an example while referring to the tweet of a game player.

Earlier, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) officially put a ban on the popular online game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUGB) which was supposed to create a “negative impact on the physical and mental health of the children”. To be specific, the game is alleged to be related to many violent and suicidal cases among youngsters. In addition to that, the PTA also reached out for the PUGB Mobile’s owner Tencent Games to adjust their policies relating to demographic issues as well as long-term addition to avoid the global ban of the game.
