One of the most download games, Garena Free Fire was banned. The Ministry of Home Affairs has recommended the ban for Free Fire and other 53 Chinese Apps.

What is Garena Free Fire?

Garena Free Fire is one of the most popular and most downloaded mobile shooting games. In India last year after the PUBG ban, Free Fire grabbed lots of players. In other words, It took the space created by PUBG. In the game, a number of 50 players are deployed onto the Island to search for weapons and supplies. Everyone fight with each other to survive the last one.

Reason for banning Garena Free Fire :

Garena Free Fire is the most downloaded game after PUBG. Garena Sea is a Singapore-based company and also the developer is not from China. But this ban is due to the company’s club with Chinese applications.

In 2020, the Government of India banned TikTok and other popular video apps from china including 59 apps in total. According to PTI, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) will formally issue a notification banning the operations of these apps in India.

For TikTok and PUBG, the government had said that these were being banned “in view of the emergent nature of threats” as “they are engaged in activities which are prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defense of India, security of the state and public order.”

MeitY banned these apps under Section 69A of the Information Technology Act, which states that the government has the  “Power to issue directions for interception or monitoring or decryption of any information through any computer resource.”
