Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) Mobile is one of the most loved games in Pakistan right now with people of all age groups hooked to the battle royale game.
Following a few deaths of teenagers due to the game, Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has banned PUBG Mobile temporarily. PTA announced the news in a press release on Wednesday.
In view of complaints received from different segments of society, Pakistan Telecommunication Authority has decided to temporarily suspend the PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) game. PTA has received numerous complaints against PUBG wherein it is stated that the game is addictive, wastage of time and poses serious negative impact on physical and psychological health of the children.
The move hasn’t been received well among the teenagers and PUBG lovers are taking to Twitter to vent out their frustration.
Let’s have a look at what they are saying on social media:
PUBG players right now:
2020 has been hard.
