More about PUBG Mobile Fatwa
According to the MPU, PUBG Mobile fatwa will help prevent the children from getting inspired by violence. The MPU spokesperson said, “MPU has been advised to lobby the Aceh provincial government to turn this fatwa against online games into a justification to carry out Islamic Sharia in Aceh.” The MPU wants nationwide ban for the battle royal game.
The MPU is also trying to convince the regional government to add the PUBG Mobile fatwa in Qanun – set of laws established by the Muslim sovereigns. If the regional government accepts the request and inserts it in Qanun, the offender will be caned publicly. For unawares, the violators of Qanun are often punished by caning publicly.
