The Ministry of Education and Home Affairs has already made a recommendation to the Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC).
The Parliamentary Standing Committee on the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications has discussed the matter after receiving such recommendations from the two ministries. Concerns were raised about the addiction to those two games during the discussion.
MA Khair, public relations officer of the education ministry, told NTV Online on Saturday afternoon, “Last week, the education minister spoke to the home minister and recommended that the two games be stopped at the BTRC.”
Because those two games have created addiction among teenagers and young people. Now BTRC will decide when these two will be closed.
Expressing concern, the Ministry of Education said that due to the closure of educational institutions in Corona, the students have recently become addicted to the two games.
Meanwhile, Mohiuddin Ahmed, president of the Bangladesh Mobile Phone Subscribers Association, said in a statement on Wednesday that parents were being forced to hand over laptops and mobile devices to their children for online classes as schools, colleges and universities were closed due to the Corona epidemic.
With this opportunity, the young generation is getting addicted to these two games.
Mohiuddin Ahmed gave an example to highlight the horrors of free fire and pubji addiction. On May 21, a young man named Mamun (14) committed suicide in Chandpur with his mother after not getting money to buy mobile phone data.
Mohiuddin said, “While we are relentlessly working for the next generation of young people to get access to high speed internet, the next generation has gone astray by abusing technology, which has made us think.”
I urge the Ministry of Telecommunications and Technology and the Regulatory Commission to take necessary steps to stop the misuse of these games and highlight the good aspects of technology as well as to create public awareness.
Apart from this, some other reasons have been shown about the closure of the two games.
Concerned people said that as a result of playing such games, a huge amount of money is going abroad. In addition to playing online games, virtual money transactions are being done through MMS organizations. And the state, society, individuals and families are being harmed by this.
Nepal’s courts have recently banned pubs. For the same reason, the game was banned in Gujarat, India. Some were even arrested for playing the game. In Bangladesh too, Pubji was temporarily closed and later reopened.
The Chinese company made the war game Free Fire in 2019, similar to the online video game of South Korean game developer Blue Whale in 2016. In 2019, it is the most downloaded mobile game in the world.
The game involves 50 or more players wearing parachutes on an island in search of weapons and equipment to kill another player. Work is currently underway on an improved version of Freefire known as Freefire Max.
On the other hand, many people compare the killing of Muslims in a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand, with a gun and the scene on Facebook Live. Psychologists say that these games have a psychological effect on the soft-spoken and make the youth aggressive.
