Recently, the ban on Chinese video creating app TikTok, one of the world’s most popular mobile applications, has worried PUBG fans that online multiplayer game can be targeted next in India. Both apps have ‘inappropriate content’. Madras High Court issued a directive to the Government of India to ban downloads of TikTok app as it was believed to promote pornographic content. Likewise, it is assumed that exposure to PUBG could increase violence among children.
Netizens are scared after TikTok ban that PUBG might be in the list now. Gujarat Police has requested Google to remove PUBG game from the play store and prevent its download in the jurisdiction of Rajkot city.
