11-Year-Old Demands PUBG Mobile Ban in India
11-year-old boy Ahad from Mumbai has written a 4- page strong-worded letter seeking PUBG ban in India to seven ministers, including Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis, Ravi Shankar Prasad, Ministry of Electronics and IT, and Maharashtra's education minister Vinod Tawde among others.
He said that the game was linked to immoral conducts such as violence, murder, aggression, addiction to gaming, looting and cyberbullying.
Ahad also said that he will go legally if no action was taken by the ministers to ban the game. Ahad has reportedly decided to file Public Interest Litigation (PIL) at the Bombay High Court.
Though PUBG has a lot of craze in India, it has also faced enough criticism for its addictive nature.
Though there are a few educational institutions that banned PUBG, Gujarat has become the first state to ban the game across all primary schools.
More than 120 cases were registered at Services for Healthy Use of Technology (SHUT) clinic in National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences (NIMHANS) because of PUBG addiction in late 2018.
