Introduction to Why PUBG Really Banned In India
Amidst the roaring tension between India and China, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has banned 118 Chinese Apps for the third time.
Of all 118 apps, PUBG Mobile is the most popular app in India among the Gen Y and Gen Zer’s. The PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite are created by Tencent, a Chinese company under a Korean company’s license.
As stated by the official Press Release, the mobile applications were “Prejudicial to Sovereignty and Integrity of India, Defence of India, Security of State and Public Order.”
The release further denoted that considering the public sway and data security of Indian users’ crores, these banned apps will soon be effaced from the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
Twitter exploded with hilarious memes as soon as the ban was implied by the IT ministry. As a matter of fact, PUBG, after its ban, has shockingly made 50 million people realize that they are unemployed.
