After Arunachal Pradesh MLA Ninong Ering called for a ban on the second coming of PUBG Mobile, Battlegrounds Mobile India, it appears that prominent PUBG Mobile streamers have resorted to racist comments as a response response.
Preet has close to two million subscribers on YouTube and Raghav has been playing PUBG Mobile professionally, and they are both prominent faces in the community.
The Tencent-funded company, Krafton’s PUBG Mobile was banned in India in September 2020 due to geopolitical tensions between India and China, as well as concerns regarding user data and privacy. Krafton has since been trying to bring back the game as Battlegrounds Mobile India.
Recently, however, former Union Minister and current Arunachal Pradesh MLA Ninong Ering wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, requesting a ban on what he terms as “the relaunch of PUBG Mobile.”
Ering had reasoned that the game was aimed at deceiving the government and citizens and should be banned in the country.
The former MP had said that “re-launching the game was a mere illusion and a trick to collect user data of the citizens, including children and transfer it to foreign companies and the Chinese government.”
