PUBG and BGMI Are the Identical, Tencent Misled Indian Authorities, Ought to Be Banned: NGO

Sharing is caring!

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (aka PUBG), and Battlegrounds Cellular India (aka BGMI) are the identical, and Tencent has misled the Indian authorities, a non-profit organisation referred to as Prahar has claimed. Calling for a ban on BGMI/ PUBG, a high govt of the NGO has alleged that there is no such thing as a firm referred to as Krafton India. BGMI is an Indian model of PUBG Cellular, which was launched solely for gamers in India after the federal government banned PUBG Cellular within the nation. The battle royale sport is developed and printed by Krafton.

Abhay Mishra, President of Prahar wrote in a letter to the Ministry of Electronics and Info Expertise (MeiTY) that as per paperwork out there with the Ministry of Company Affairs (MCA), the one Krafton in India is a paper manufacturing firm with no relation to Krafton of South Korea (builders of BGMI). Mishra stated within the letter that Krafton authorised Hyunil Sohn to signify the corporate, the identical one that is authorised to signify PUBG India — deducing that Sohn represents the Chinese language firm Tencent in India.

“In a board of Administrators Council Assembly of Krafton Inc, in a decision dated twenty sixth November, 2021, Hyunil Sohn was named to signify Krafton in relation to Battlegrounds Cellular India. On the identical time on November 26, 2021, PUBG India Pvt. Restricted, in a board decision, authorised the exact same Hyunil Sohn, to signify PUBG India in relation to Battlegrounds Cellular India,” Mishra stated.

Mishra questioned that if PUBG and BGMI are totally different, why did Krafton India, “the so-called” writer of BGMI, authorise Hyunil Sohn of PUBG India Pvt. Ltd to signify the corporate? “Is Hyunil Sohn, a consultant of PUBG or BGMI or each? The reply is in actuality, he represents the Chinese language firm Tencent in India,” Mishra claimed in a communication despatched to Devices 360.

On the idea of the deductions on the alleged “elaborate charade perpetrated by Chinese language firm Tencent”, the NGO has referred to as for “a ban on BGMI/ PUBG app.” We have reached out to Krafton to reply to the allegations, and can replace this area once we hear again.

The event follows practically two months after the federal government banned 54 apps which have hyperlinks to China and pose a menace to the nation’s safety. The apps that had been banned embrace Garena Free Fire, Tencent’s Xriver, and NetEase’s Onmyoji Enviornment. India has blocked practically 300 apps within the nation since border tensions erupted with China in Might 2020.
