Pokemon Go craze is spreading like fire among-st youngsters and even among the adults. Recently a religious group Nirvair Khalsa Jatha UK arranged a Satsang for Pokemon Go addicts to warn people about the dangers of this newfound vice. The guru claimed how it was actually “pakkad man” go, which translated to capturing the mind. He asserts how the game is “capturing” our time and energy, rather than players capturing Pokemon. But he doesn’t dismiss the game completely. “I’m not saying don’t play, but don’t just waste all of your days on these games,” Singh says in the video.
He also explains that the excess of anything is too bad and that can be clearly seen from the sheer number of Pokémon Go related accidents and the hours and hours of determined game-play that people indulge in.
In the video, the spiritual Guru tries to explain how dangerous the game can be. He recalls from his trip to America, where he noticed youngsters glued to their phones. He thought they were reading, but after 3 hours when he asked what they were doing, they told him that they were playing Pokémon Go.
Concerns over Pokemon Go are mounting in some countries where players have met with minor and major accidents. There have been reports from the US and Australia of car crashes and people falling off cliffs while playing the game. Back home, the Mumbai police too warned its citizens against the game.
