PUBG is an intense tactical Battle Royale and the mobile version enjoys immense popularity in Indian and Asian markets.
However, in recent times, there has been an attack on PUBG Mobile in India, and the latest comes from an 11-year-old boy who is attempting to get Bombay High Court to ban it for promoting violence, aggression and cyberbullying.
Cyberbullying is a problem, but does not warrant a ban
Cyberbullying definitely is a problem in PUBG Mobile.
While players are waiting in the lobby before the match or flying on the battle plane, there are a lot of abuses thrown around.
Some abuses and insults target particular communities, hurting caste and religious sentiments.
However, instead of banning the entire game, it is possible to introduce chat filters, and block players who are cyberbullies.
The game channels aggression, does not promote it
PUBG does require a lot of aggression, especially if you want to win the chicken dinner.

We would have to ban most of the Khans from making films!
We believe PUBG helps channelize our violent instincts into the game, rather than allowing a more dangerous outburst in real life…………Read More>>
