The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) in its detailed order has said the popular online game, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), is “highly addictive” and a “wastage of time” and will not be unblocked. In a detailed order released on July 23, the PTA ruled that it was necessary to block the online game in the interest of public order.
“The game is highly addictive, destroying youth, wastage of time and has a negative impact on physical and psychological health,” the 11-page report read.
While admitting that there is in fact no exact definition of “decency” and “morality”, the PTA explained that it used the terms in a general sense and considered the “principles of ethics” and “right conduct” when deciding to ban PUBG.
