He is calling for a ban on the game in India similar to what happened to PUBG Mobile in September of 2020.
Krafton has not publicly commented on the letter. Battlegrounds Mobile India was announced last month by Krafton but still does not have an official release date (though some influencers in India claim it will release by the end of the month).
