Pakistani gamers are standing in arms against the government over the continuing ban on popular mobile game PUBG following a court order to suspend the ban.
The ban was imposed by the Pakistani Telecommunications Authority (PTA) on July 1, following complaints from parents who said the children were addicted to the game.
Nevertheless, a Pakistani court lifted the ban on Friday and ordered PTA to restore the game to the Telecom watchdog.
Despite the orders, the ban is still in place, irritating the gamers who have now taken to Twitter to urge Premier Imran Khan to restore the game under #ImranKhanPUBGKholo.
The #ImranKhanPUBGKholo is trending in Pakistan and has started by Pakistani celebrity Waqar Zaka. Until now, more than 1 million people have tweeted using the hashtag to uplift the ban from the game.
The power of PUBGM Pakistan ❤💯
And if still Imran Khan doesn’t reply to us then we, the Youth of Pakistan will be extremely disappointed, we’ll find a new game to play anyway, but the respect in our hearts for IK will never come back#imrankhanpubgkholo pic.twitter.com/xKtdfpUK1q

I want to live in a country where there is no banning culture. Where the youth has enough awareness to know whats right & wrong for them. For that we must invest everything we can in our basics & schooling to get results in coming years. Not by banning games. #ImranKhanPUBGKholo pic.twitter.com/TxpljEacoE

Also, a message to the youth, I know it can be very frustrating & demoralising leken har subha se pehle andhera hota hai. I request everyone protesting the bans to not use any hate speech. InshaAllah @ImranKhanPTI sir will not disappoint his youth 🙏🏽#ImranKhanPUBGKholo pic.twitter.com/tEwofkav53
