Artists in the Pakistan showbiz industry have also demanded that the ban on Prime Minister Imran Khan's online game PubG be lifted as soon as possible.
Leading singer of Pakistan music industry Asim Azhar wrote in his tweet on social networking site Twitter that the problem here is not just banning one game but this ban has a bad effect on the digital future in every field of Pakistan.
Asim Azhar wrote that I have been ridiculed by the ridiculous ban that we faced on YouTube for 5 years and now we are at the same stage again. The singer wrote while tagging Imran Khan that please don't let it happen again.
He also used # ImranKhanPUBGKholo in his tweet.
This is not just about a game, it is about the digital future of 🇵🇰 Every field will be affected. I am a victim of the ridiculous ban we had to face on YouTube for 5 years. We are again at the same stage. Please don’t let it happen again, sir @ImranKhanPTI 🙌🏽 #ImranKhanPUBGKholo— Asim Azhar (@AsimAzharr) July 27, 2020
On the other hand, actress Haniya Aamir also expressed her opinion on banning online game PUBG in her tweet saying that gaming is not a crime and banning it will only bring the government nothing but hatred and resentment. Haniya Aamir writes that instead of banning pubs, identify issues and address those that are of concern.
The actress also used # ImranKhanPUBGKholo and # Pakistan in her tweets.
Gaming is not a crime and bans achieve little other than angst and resentment. Instead of shutting down #PUBG, address and counter the issues that are a cause for concern and let them play for it is only but a game! 🙏🏽#Pakistan #ImranKhanPUBGKholo— Hania Aamir (@realhaniahehe) July 27, 2020
Actor Feroz Khan also wrote in his tweet to Prime Minister Imran Khan that he did not really understand who was advising the government to ban the PUBG game. The actor wrote that stray dogs are being killed in our country, stray cats are being abused but the online game pub is being banned.
- I really have no clue who is advising the government.— Feroze Khan (@ferozekhaan) July 28, 2020
Here stray dogs are killed stray cats are raped and #PUBG gets a ban....
I was thinking Imran khan government to be more responsive to such stuff. Basic life security. @ImranKhanPTI
Feroze Khan wrote that I thought that Imran Khan's government would be responsible for protecting everyone's life but unfortunately, everything here is equal to my thinking.
It is pertinent to mention that after receiving several suicide complaints regarding PubG, the PTA banned the game, saying that the game is a waste of time and has a severe negative impact on the physical and mental health of children.
