Islamabad High Court orders government to lift ban on PUBG

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Friday has ordered the government to lift the ban on online game Players’ Unknown Battle Ground (PUBG).

The decision to lift the ban was announced by Justice Amir Farooq while hearing a petition filed against the banning of the game.

A detailed judgment will be issued later.

The decision by the court came hours after the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority’s (PTA) announcement to keep the game on the block list.

Earlier in the day, Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) said in a tweet that it reached the decision to keep the game banned after a detailed hearing conducted at the PTA premises on July 9 on the directions of the Lahore High Court.
