Pubg is not just a game.— Shutupyouaremine 🙊 (@Farwarajpoot10) July 3, 2020
It’s a community
It has become a family

In the next hearing of Lahore High Court, which is going to be held on 9th of July, court will pass a decision of whether the ban should be lifted up or they are going to prolong the ban. There are so many other apps and games, which needs to be watched out and to be monitored. The issue does not lies in the game, the main issue is the addiction.
Parents should watch out to control the addiction of their children, because any sort of addiction leaves a very bad impact on the mental and physical health of your child. Parents are required to monitor their children, so that they will not get addicted to any sort of negative habit. Many of the societal issues will get resolved, if we got successful in protecting our children from any sort of addiction, it does not matter if its PUBG or something else.
