Following the Indian government’s decision to ban 59 Chinese apps in the country, the Indian army has asked its officers and staff to remove 89 apps from their smartphones. This includes Chinese and non-Chinese apps, including some big names like Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat. It also includes PUBG Mobile, Mobile Legends, Clash of Kings and all Tencent gaming apps according to a list shared by Asian News International.

59 apps already banned by the Indian government

The list contains the 59 applications already banned by the government as well as a few others. The inclusion of PUBG Mobile in the new list indicates a growing sense of distrust of the game. It is not surprising that the title has had its fair share of skeptics since it became overwhelmingly popular with young Indians and has since become a pop culture phenomenon. From calls to ban gambling in some states to reports of children spending huge sums of money on gambling without parental supervision, there have been a multitude of reasons and cases that have sparked outrage at the title. Despite this, its popularity and consumer status have allowed an entire industry of content creators, influencers, professional gamers and Internet personalities to thrive.

When Mobile Legends was initially banned, there were concerns that PUBG Mobile would soon follow, but that did not turn out to be the case. More recently, fears have been rekindled after a problem with iOS prevented users from starting the game and raised fears that it was banned in India. This issue even caused a delay in the PUBG Mobile World League, but has since been resolved. Although it is unlikely that PUBG Mobile will be banned from the general public, the military has asked its officers to remove the game from their phones. Although there is no confirmation if there are specific problems with the application or if this stems from a general lack of security that could compromise only members of the armed forces, the decision will certainly add to the concerns that many have regarding the title. . Rising military and political tensions between China and India have only intensified since the clashes in the Galwan Valley, and incidents like these seem to be part of the fallout.

Seven Indian teams are currently playing in the PUBG Mobile World League, which is the highest level of competition for the title. If the title were banned, the fate of all these teams and players, as well as that of an entire ecosystem, would be threatened.
