PLAYER Unknown’s Battlegrounds, popularly known as PUBG, is a popular online game made by a South Korean firm Bluehole inc, which has become very popular with hundreds of millions of people particularly students.
This game makes students lazy because it has been created in such a way that people are readily attracted towards it.
In PUBG, there are 100 people on an island where they have to kill each other and the last survivor is the winner. Owing to its hazardous impacts on students this game has been banned by many countries after concerns were expressed over its effect on the young. Our government should also take notice as a sizeable number of Pakistani youth are getting enticed by the game.
The government should act immediately to ban this game in Pakistan also, so that our youth do not fall prey to its hazards.
