Pakistan Bans Selling Call Of Duty And Medal Of Honor

Posted on Wednesday, January 23 @ 14:54:31 Eastern by Keri_Honea


The All Pakistan CD, DVD, Audio Cassette Traders and Manufacturers Association (APCDACTM) has banned both Call of Duty: Black Ops II and Medal of Honor: Warfighter in Pakistan. The group dropped the banhammer because the games depict both Pakistan and its intelligence agency as supporting Al Qaeda and other jihadist organizations.

The following is the statement the group issued to game retailer owners:

The Association has always boycotted these types of films and games. These (games) have been developed against the country’s national unity and sanctity. The games (Medal of Honor: Warfighter and Call of Duty: Black Ops II) have been developed against Pakistan, and the association has completely banned their sale. Shopkeepers are warned and will be responsible for the consequences if found purchasing or selling these games.

Saleem Memon, president of the APCDACTM branch in Karachi, explained that numerous complaints stimulated the group to boycott the games. "The problem is that there are things that are against Pakistan and they have included criticism of our army. They show the country in a very poor light," he told a foreign news outlet.

If you've played either of these games, then these sentiments should not exactly come at a surprise. According to Fox News, some of the outcry against these games are more extreme than that, with an "unnamed Pakistani security official" believing that the games are psychological warfare with Pakistani youth.

"These games are an effort to malign the minds of youth against Pakistan," he said "Not only should the original be banned, but the pirated version sales should be blocked also."
