Moreover, the federal minister had voiced his concerns earlier when the Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA) was pondering permanent bans on various apps and services, including PUBG, the popular online battle-royale game officially known as PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

Following the PTA’s warning to the apps over “immoral, obscene and vulgar content”, Chaudhry shared his thoughts about the ongoing “moral policing and ban approach” in the country, saying it was not okay to go on banning apps left, right, and centre, as it would “destroy [Pakistani] tech industry”.
