The article talks about the YouTuber using racial slurs and the action taken against him, all because of the MLA demanding a ban against Battlegrounds Mobile India.
Former Union Minister and current MP for Arunachal Pradesh, Ninong Erin, has written to the Prime Minister saying the release of the game is a threat to the privacy and security of Indians. Although the game has yet to be released and is not available to download, it has been surrounded by further controversy. Indian politicians were seeking to ban the game as it threatens the privacy and security of Indian citizens. A request had been made by former Union minister and current MP for Arunachal Pradesh, Ninong Erin. The MP wrote to the Prime Minister asking for an immediate ban and "not to allow Chinese deception".
In reaction, a mobile PUBG YouTuber from Punjab named Paras Official made racial statements against Mr Ering. He called "Ering non-Indian and Arunachal Pradesh, part of China," according to a report by EastMojo.
Paras Official discussed these developments in a video and said "Mujhe to nahi lagta yeh (Mr Ering) Indian hai" and while looking at the map of India, also made some comments about Arunachal Pradesh. He reportedly said the following:“Arre yaar yeh (Arunachal) in China ki side me hai. Yeh China walon ka hi hai…ek tarah se unhi k saath hi hai halka fulka touch hota hai, India me aata hai.
Chief Minister Pema Khandu, taking to Twitter, condemned the racist remarks and said "the video aims to incite ill will and hatred towards the people of Arunachal Pradesh". According to IsMojo , Ering said Singh's "immature" comments didn't hurt him personally. "He's free to point out mistakes, if any, but racist remarks are serious and need to be reconsidered," Ering said.
“A case has been registered against Paras for racial hatred and Itanagar cybercrime branch is investigating the case,” DGP RP Upadhyaya said. Although the YouTuber has submitted a bunch of apology letters, it looks like he's ready for the big ride, and the racial slurs seem worse than ever.
