Free fire and Pubg are being closed in Bangladesh. Based on the recommendation of the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Home Affairs, two popular games like Free Fire and Pubg are being discontinued in Bangladesh.
Concerned about the addiction to the two games, the Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission has already recommended stopping it. Earlier, Pubg was temporarily closed but was reopened later.
The Bangladesh Mobile Phone Subscribers Association has recently called for urgent steps to control free fire and pubs as a result of creating addiction among teenagers and youths.
However, BTCL is also taking the issue seriously so that no one can play in an alternative way including VPN even if the two games are stopped. So it was informed that steps will be taken to stop the two games gradually.
Nepal’s courts have recently banned Pubg. For the identical purpose, the sport was banned in Gujarat, India. Some were even arrested for playing the game.
The online video of South Korean game developer Blue Whale was launched in 2017. Since then, the game quickly became popular among the younger generation in Bangladesh. In 2018, Pubg topped the list of most popular online games, leaving behind games like Angry Birds, Temple Run, Candy Crush.
On the other hand, the war game Free Fire created by the Chinese company in 2019 became similarly popular among the younger generation. Students are becoming addicted to these games, especially as schools, colleges, and universities are closed due to the Corona epidemic.
