Don Quixote may be a fictional character, but there are many knights willing to fight the windmills. Four separate Indian cities have banned PUBG Mobile to safeguard the children. The two main reasons for the bans are the propagation of violence and the addictive nature of the game. To the local authorities’ opinion, the ban will help the younger people to perform better during tests.

This is a tweet released by the official account of Rajkot metropolitan Police station announcing the ban. Funnily enough, the ban isn’t permanent – it will be taking place between 9th and 30th March. The tweet also mentions Momo Challenge, an internet hoax about an allegedly organized group of hackers who force their way into children’s phones and give them dangerous tasks.

Those who violate the ban, may spend up to a month in prison and be fined.

Unlike the PC version, PUBG Mobile is free and excellently optimized for mobile devices. The game is massively popular, especially in Asia, and could be called the most popular Battle Royale for mobile in the world.

The authorities of India, both local and centralized, call for a restriction of PUBG Mobile. A state minister publicly called the game "demon in every house."
