The debut of PUBG Mobile India was announced by Krafton, the creators of Player Unknown’s Battleground (PUBG). The game will be relaunched with a new avatar and a new name, Battlegrounds Mobile India, it was just announced. The release date for Battlegrounds Mobile India, also known as PUBG Mobile India, has yet to be announced, although pre-registration for Android phones has begun. It has been confirmed that the game would be re-released in India with a few tweaks, including redesigned gameplay, age limits, and other enhancements.
Arunachal Pradesh MLA Calls for Ban on the Launch of the Game:
Ninong Ering, a former union minister and member of the Arunachal Pradesh Legislative Assembly, has asked for a ban on the relaunch of PUBG Mobile as Battlegrounds Mobile India, claiming that it will enable China’s Tencent Holdings access to the Indian market once more. Despite the fact that Tencent owns 15.5 percent of Krafton, Ering stated in a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and senior government officials that the South Korean game publisher was launching the game independently in India. “This is a mere illusion and a trick to relaunch the same game with minor modifications and collect user data of millions of our citizens, including our children and transfer it to foreign companies and the Chinese government,” he said in the letter.
Punjab’s YouTuber told Arunachal Pradesh Part of China:
The news is everywhere now of a 21-year-old who was seized by the Punjab Police in Ludhiana on Tuesday. On Sunday, Paras posted a video in which he remarked on Ering’s looks, claiming that he didn’t “look Indian” and that Arunachal Pradesh was not in India, but rather in China. Paras made the remarks in response to Ering’s letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in which he requested that a game named “Battlegrounds Mobile India” be banned. The video sparked significant uproar in Arunachal Pradesh, with residents from all throughout the state registering complaints, including Ering himself.
Ering said that Paras was a video game fanatic who was “frustrated” by his letter requesting the ban. “It would have been alright if he just wrote to me about it but instead, he started criticizing my looks, my community, and my state. It was very hurtful to hear those comments.” It was a pure racial comment that Paras has said about the MLA and this is disheartening. Ering also stated that Paras’ comment clearly amounted to “racial discrimination” which is unacceptable.
Paras started a YouTube channel after his 10th. His mother, Chanda Devi, is a stay-at-home mom, and his father passed away a few years ago. He is the brother of a married sister. The family originally came from Katihar, Bihar, and had relocated to Ludhiana in the search of a job. His father was a truck driver in the past.
Paras also uploaded an apology video on May 23rd in which he said sorry for what he has said about the MLA earlier. At the time of reporting this story, the apologetic video received 6.71 lakh views. Paras also claims that he is receiving “hate comments” on his videos, as well as “abuses” directed at his family. His mother’s video, in which she apologizes for her son, is the most recent one on the channel.
