Video Game Controversy of APS Massacre

One year later after the most tragic event in the history of Pakistan, there is new controversial news associated with it. The heinous event that killed around 130 school children in Peshawar’s Army Public School, was condemned throughout the world. People were saddened on the loss of innocent young lives and protested against all sorts of terrorist acts in Pakistan or anywhere in the world. Recently, an Android Game based on APS killings by Taliban was introduced by Google Play Store, which further sparked controversies and unease in the nation.

This game was based on the entire mission of terrorists, where all the players are in boots of an armed soldier trying to rescue civilians and eliminate terrorists. This game was designed for kids, who imagine themselves as playing a part of armed forces fighting nation’s pride using machine guns and snipers. Irrespective of this jingoistic description, this game was condemned to portray something negative.

The APS attack was a big tragedy, a tragedy, which should never be deemed as a game or something that can be played. Even virtually manipulating the acts of army or terrorists is making kids play something without feelings and values. This can be understood by the reaction of the families, who lost their loved ones in this tragedy. Games and apps like these would trigger their emotions in a very wrong way.

Furthermore, games based on such terror and violence will teach young minds more terror and violence. They would learn the meaning of using weapons in a complete different way if they are playing games like these in their learning years.
