Ban PUBG Mobile and Free Fire, such online games affect mental health: MP urges Nepal govt


Last year, under Section 69A of the IBT Act, the Indian government banned PUBG mobile along with hundreds of other Chinese apps. Now, a Nepali lawmaker has called on the government to ban the Royal War game in the country. MPs have called for a ban on Garena Free Fire, another popular mobile game.

Earlier this week, House of Representatives member Asha Kumari BK called on the Nepalese government to ban these popular mobile games, saying they have a negative impact on mental health.

PUBG mobile, free fire will be banned in Nepal?

Asha Kumari BK told Zero Hour in the House of Representatives of Nepal on July 27 that online games have a detrimental effect on the mental health of young people. He raised his voice against online games in general and called on the government to stop such games in the country immediately.

“Online games like PUBG Mobile and Free Fire have a detrimental effect on children’s mental well-being,” he said. “I would like to bring this issue to the notice of the government through the speaker. Otherwise, the day may come when parents and guardians will go to court to seek justice.

The MP highlighted that such PUBG mobile and free fire games are addictive and a cause for concern. Excessive use of these online games has an adverse effect on children, he said. The MP further pointed out that addiction to such games can cause anxiety, agitation and lack of concentration among the youth. He believes that taking steps to ban such addictive online games would be a step towards improving the country’s children.

Created by Crafton, the PUBG mobile game faced a temporary ban in Nepal in 2019, two years ago. However, the game was able to make a comeback after the Supreme Court of Nepal lifted the ban.
