On Saturday, the Cultural Parliamentary Committee submitted a draft law seeking to ban PUBG-specific electronic games. “The committee is concerned about the obsession with these electronic games that ignite child and youth violence. Its influence has spread rapidly throughout Iraq’s society, “said committee head Sameaa Gullab during a Baghdad press conference. Iraqi media reported last year’s games-related suicide and divorce incidents.
Nepal has recently formally banned PUBG from stopping addiction and preventing violence. Police Senior Superintendent Dhiraj Pratap Singh received eight letters from schools and twenty-five letters from parents who complained last month about PUBG’s violent and addictive nature, and that was the final straw. The ban on PUBG began in a recent story published by the Nepal-based news outfit The Kathmandu Post when the Metropolitan Crime Division of Nepal officially filed a Public Interest Litigation requesting a complete ban on PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.
Minister of GOA IT Rohan Khaunte said earlier that a law had to be passed to put a stop to PUBG.
