PlayersUnkown’s Battleground or PUBG ban in Pakistan will remain in place despite orders of the Islamabad High Court (IHC) to unban the game according to the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA).
Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) says that the PUBG ban in Pakistan will continue as as the authority had the power under Section 37 of PECA to decide what remains accessible or blocked due to objectionable content.
PUBG was banned in Pakistan on 1 July after several complaints were received against the online multiplayer game and Pubjab police also suggested the ban blaming PUBG for two suicide cases in the province.
However, while approving a petition filed in the Islamabad High Court, Justice Amir Farooq gave orders to unban PUBG in Pakistan after PTA couldn defend its decision.
Although Pakistan Telecommunication Authority has stated that PUBG will reamain banned in Pakistan shall remain in place further asking PUBG management about game sessions of Pakistani users and all regulatory measures the company has in place.
The PUBG management has not responded to the request so far.
