Indian Official Sees The Same Problem With New PUBG As With Old PUBG

May 26, 2021

Indian MLA Ninong Ering recently called for a ban on Battlegrounds Mobile India, the  country-specific version of Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) Mobile.

A letter that Ering wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Twitter said the game re-launching will highly likely lead to a breach of privacy and cybersecurity of our citizens, and there will be the same risks of addiction and harm as those associated with PUBG.

In 2021, India banned more than 100 apps with ties to China, including PUBG Mobile.

Krafton announced plans to release an India-specific version of the game in response to the ban in September 2020.

Its handling of Indian citizens’ data and its privacy policy concerned Ering.

The privacy policy of Battlegrounds Mobile India regarding international data transfer states that personal information will be kept on servers within India and Singapore, although, “We may transfer your data to other countries and/or regions to operate the game service and/or to meet legal requirements.”.

We will ensure that your information is properly protected if it is transferred to another country or region.

Ering called Krafton’s planned re-release “an illusion.”

Myanmar Refugees Are Fleeing to India

April 13, 2021

India has turned out to be one of the most popular places that Myanmar nationals are going to after fleeing their country.
It is not easy to get into Insia. It took Makhi, a Maynmar national, three time to get into India. On the third attempt, she use a dirt path through a forest to get into Inia. Others had to use an underground sewer that connects villages on both sides of the border.
Makhai, a 42-year-old, fled from her border district of Tamu, earlier in April. She came with her daughter and her sisters. They ended up in the Indian state of Manupur. She felt that her family had to save themselves.
Makhai felt that she had to escape now. She did not think that she had another chance.
Her country, Myanmar (Burma), is in the grip of violence. After the coup on February 1st, 2021, the Myanmar military has been trying to crushing the protests in the most violent way possible. They have even been killing children.
Rights groups believe that the Myanmar military has killed about 600 people. 43 of them have been children. According to Makhai, the soliders have been forcing themselves into people people’s house. They then rape and kill civilians.
People have witnessed the military killing on the streets as well as their home. They may have killed a six-year-old at home who was running to hug her father.
Zaw Hin, a Maynmar spokesperson, claimed that hte military would never shoot a kid inside their home. If somethng like that happened, the army would investigate such an incident.
Reports of child shootings have been widespread and the world is not happy about it.
Makhsi feels thst her people are scared to live in their homes. Her family had to spend many nights in the forest.
Ar first, the Manipur governmetn in India told its officials to turn away the Myanmar officils. They then changed their minds due to public backlash and will now let the refugees into the country.
