Supreme Court issues an interim order to Government for not to ban the popular online game, PUBG. Earlier, NTA (Nepal Telecommunication Authority) put a ban on the game with the order of Kathmandu District court as per request by Nepal Police.
Citing the ban unconstitutional and it restricts freedom of internet usage, Team of Paramount Legal Advisory Services submit a petition at the SC. Advocates Prabin Subedi, Bikash Thapa, Anurag Subedi, Subash Pathak and Ritesh Paudel are in the team.
With the decision of Kathmandu district court, NTA asked Internet Service providers to ban PUBG game. After which, some of the ISPs started to ban the game while others were yet to filter the game.
Although some parents find it as a great relief, there was a huge outcry against the PUBG ban from the internet generation youths. Some people also called it a stupid decision while some challenged government to ban other internet stuff like Facebook, Twitter, and other games.
Some intellects termed the ban process to be wrong as the internet filtering is not under the jurisdiction of Kathmandu District Court.
A single bench of justice Ishwor Khatiwoda had come to the decision for the interim order. The decision also asked the government to bring forth the reason behind the ban within 15 days.
