PUBG has come under fire from many Muslims around the world for having a model of Kaaba in its latest update which has hurt its religious sentiments.
So much so, that the Tamil Nadu Muslim League (TNML) yesterday wrote a long letter to the Chennai Commissioner. In its complaint, they accused the game of hurting their religious sentiments and distracting the youth and called for an immediate ban of the game.
The controversy surfaced last week when Tencent rolled out a 1 year anniversary update which contained a birthday crate containing a Kaaba. The Kaaba, meaning “cube” in Arabic, is considered by Muslims to be the house of God and it rests within the Grand Mosque of Mecca.
This enraged many Muslims around the world and resulted in various online campaigns against the game. Tencent quickly changed the birthday crate and issued an apology thereafter.
