Free Fire & Battlegrounds Mobile India: Indian Judge Urges PM Narendra Modi To Ban These Games


Additional District Judge Naresh Kumar Laka wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi requesting him to ban Free Fire and Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) in the country. Both the games are battle royale games which have an infamous reputation in the country for being addictive for the younger generation.

Currently, BGMI and Free Fire are among the top-grossing mobile games in the country and have millions of daily active players. Many influential personalities have also voiced their opinion and requested the government of India to ban these games as well. BGMI is the Indian version of PUBG, the mobile game that was banned back in September 2020 due to security concerns.

South Korean-based gaming company Krafton had developed BGMI specifically for the Indian region in order to better align it within the laws and regulations of the land. After PUBG disappeared from India, Free Fire became the next game that gamers turned to.

According to a report by the Times of India, judge Laka pointed out the ill effects caused by these games in his letter to the PM. The letter reads, “The citizens of the country appreciated your action in banning the notorious game PUBG Mobile which caused devastating adverse effects on the development of the children. But recently two similar games, namely, Free Fire and PUBG India (Battlegrounds Mobile India) are causing adverse effects on children like the previous PUBG.”

He further added that many kids and teenagers spend long hours playing on these mobile games which then disrupts their regular life and social behaviour. He also suggested that a law should be framed in order to restrict the exposure of these games, especially to minors.

Just before this, Arunachal Pradesh MLA Ninong Ering, also wrote a letter urging PM Modi to ban BGMI. This caused an uproar in the gaming community and also caused many to make some racist remarks about the MLA. However, as of now there is no official action taken on this appeal.
