According to Afghan news source Khaama Press, the Taliban has agreed to put the TikTok ban into force in a month, although the PUBG Mobile ban could take up to 90 days. According to reports, the Afghan government has informed the nation’s internet and telecommunications service providers of the impending ban and that it must be implemented following the schedule.

The Taliban had previously blocked access to more than 23 million websites for Afghan citizens before the announcement regarding the ban on PUBG Mobile and TikTok. The temporary administration claimed that the websites showed what they considered immoral material.

Time and time, battle royale games have been put on the crosshair due to their alleged “violent” gameplay. They have also been accused of promoting addiction in the youth, especially children. In most cases, lawmakers decide on a nationwide ban on the game rather than taking preventive measures to restrict addiction in youth playing the game.
