PUBG Ban Reversed In Nepal By Supreme Court

PUBG has been in the news for all the wrong reasons lately but a fresh update will soothe the players. After a brief unofficial ban in India’s Gujarat state, Nepal put a blanket ban earlier this month on Tencent’s popular mobile game following complaints made by parents worried that the game might affect their mental health. The nation’s federal investigation agency directed the Nepal Telecommunications Authority (NTA) to make sure the ISPs and mobile providers blocked the game.

Many lawyers presented a formal request to unban the game citing that the constitution gives Nepal citizens the freedom to play the game and that the government should justify the ban. According to The Himalayan Times, the court determined the ban would impact residents’ freedoms and as such it couldn’t stay in place.

Justice Ishwar Prasad Khatiwada noticed that PUBG mobile was just a game which served as a medium for entertainment. The court also issued a notice to Nepal’s government authorities asking for a response on the matter.

The ban was deemed illogical and saw a hue and cry from youths across the country who questioned it while parents were cheerful. This new update is definitely in favor of the PUBG players. It was earlier predicted that PUBG might follow similar lines to that of TikTok, which was recently banned in India.
