Garena Free Fire and PUBG Mobile are both the most popular titles in the mobile battle royale genre. However, many countries believe that these games spread violence and nothing else. Here we will take a look at the recent Free Fire and PUBG Mobile ban in Bagladesh after High Court orders Bangladesh Government.
Despite the vast popularity of both the titles they will soon receive some strict legal action due to their violence, intense gameplay and addiction. These actions majorly impacts the minds of children and teenagers. They also feel that they distract the youth and affect their mental health.
Free Fire and PUBG Mobile Ban In Bangladesh
This all started back in May 2021 when the Ministry of Education and Home Affairs of Bangladesh recommended the suspension of PUBG Mobile and Free Fire in the country due to addiction among teenagers and young adults. On 19 June 2021, the lawyers of the Supreme Court, Mohammad Humayun Kabir Pallab and Barrister Mohammad Kawser, sent a legal notice asking the government to ban the games.
After receiving no response from the concerned authorities, these lawyers, on behalf of the Law and Life Foundation, approached the country’s High Court via a written petition.
The order of Free Fire and PUBG Mobile ban in Bangladesh was passed today, on 16 September 2021, by the High Court bench of Justice Md Mozibur Rahman Miah and Justice Md Kamrul Hossain Mollah. According to NEWAGE Bangladesh, the Bangladesh HC has already asked the Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission’s chairman to ban the games for three months.
Much to the disappointment of Battle Royale enthusiasts, the High Court of Bangladesh asked the relevant authorities to ban “dangerous” online games and mobile applications, including Free Fire and PUBG.
