On January 18, 2022, a young Pakistani man grabbed a gun and killed his entire family. During his interrogation by the police, this teenager pointed to the game PUBG, claiming to have acted under its influence. For local authorities, the cup is full. They call for the ban of Battle Royale on the territory.


Ali Zain, an 18-year-old Pakistani boy, shot and killed his parents, two of his sisters and his brother on January 18, 2022 . During his interrogation by the police of Lahore (a city located in the east of the country), the teenager claimed to have acted under the influence of PUBG Mobile , the famous Battle Royale which is a hit all over the world.

According to investigators, Ali Zain lived in total self-sufficiency in his room, spending hours riveted on his smartphone playing PUBG Mobile . According to a police official quoted by the daily Dawn and relayed by our colleagues from La Voix du Nord , the young man “ shot his family members thinking that they would come back to life as is the case. case in the game”.



For local authorities, this case is the straw that broke the camel’s back . “ This is not the first incident of this nature. In fact, we have decided to recommend a ban on PUBG,” a Lahore investigator told reporters. It must be said that this is not the first time that the king of Battle Royale (popular video game genre consisting of killing his opponents to become the last survivor of the game) has been singled out by Pakistani institutions.

Indeed, the title has already been temporarily banned by the telecommunications regulatory authority following numerous public complaints for its violence. As our colleagues from La Voix du Nord remind us, a group of Indonesian theologians pronounced a fatwa in 2009 against PUBG, claiming that its violence was an insult to Islam and could provoke dangerous behavior. India and China have also taken drastic action against the title , with temporary or permanent bans. Despite these numerous attacks against it, PUBG Mobile remains the most lucrative mobile game of 2021 , with more than 2.5 billion euros in revenue.
