Taking to his twitter handle on Friday, Aamir Liaquat Hussain said the Islamabad High Court has given an ideal decision.
He said Pakistanis nowadays have very limited sources of entertainment and extracurricular activities.
While mentioning TV host Waqar Zaka in his tweet, he thanked him for his tireless efforts in convincing authorities for unbanning PUBG in Pakistan.
پب جی کی بندش پر جتنے “سب جی حضوری” میں لگے ہوئے تھے وقار ذکا نے “ہٹ جی” کر کے سب کو ہٹا دیا، عدالت کا ایک مثالی فیصلہ، تفریح اور غیر نصابی سرگرمیوں سے دور اہلیان پاکستان کے پاس چند ہی تو ذرائع ہیں کیا انہیں بھی ان سے چھین لیا جائے؟
