Just hours ago the Bangladesh High Court passed an order to ban Free Fire, PUBG and Tik Tok as it affects the mental health of teenage kids. The case started in June when a group of people filed a petition to ban Free Fire, PUBG and Tik Tok and now all the three apps have been banned. Let’s dig deeper and find out more about the ban and how it affects Free Fire, PUBG and Tik Tok’s future in other countries including India.
Why Did The Bangladesh High Court Ban Free Fire, PUBG and Tik Tok for 3 Months
Justice Md Mozibur Rahman Miah along with Justice Md Kamrul Hossain Mollah passed the order to ban 5 apps including Free Fire, PUBG and Tik Tok. The bench also asked the chairman of BTRC, and secretaries of Law Ministry, Eduaction Ministry and many other important figures of the Bangladesh government to respond as to why the apps should be restored. All the aforementioned people have been given 10 days to respond in written. The main reason for the ban is the addictive nature of the apps and how it has been affecting the mental health of the users especially young kids who use the apps.

Will Free Fire And BGMI Be Banned In India?
Krafton has been very careful with BGMI after the ban on PUBG and so is the case with Garena, especially in India. Even after being so careful there have been a couple of cases against Free Fire in North east. As of now no action has been taken on those complaints but the ban in Bangladesh can trigger the dead flame again. It is too soon to comment on the impact of the ban in Bangladesh but we do expect that this news can trigger some negative sentiment against Free Fire and BGMI and would create some problems for the games.
