PUBG unbanned in Pakistan

Islamabad: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Friday ordered the government to lift ban on online game Players’ Unknown Battle Ground (PUBG).

Justice Aamir Farooq of the IHC announced the verdict today which was reserved last week in the petition challenging the ban.

During the last hearing, the Pakistan Telecommunication lawyer said the game had been banned after the department had witnessed some anti-Islam material on it.

In a statement issued announcing the decision to ban the game, the PTA said it reached the decision to keep the game banned after a detailed hearing conducted at the PTA premises on July 9 on the directions of the Lahore High Court.
