According to the plea, while there are many images and character that offend some communities, the image of eggs shown in the augmented reality game appear in places of worship of different religious groups. The petitioner has said eggs are considered as non- vegetarian food, and it is blasphemous to carry non-vegetarian food inside a place of worship of Hindus and Jains. People playing the game get their points in the form of eggs which generally appear in the places of worship of different religious groups. To find eggs in temples of Hindus and Jains is blasphemous, and therefore my client has sought ban on the game from the country, petitioner s lawyer Nachiket Dave said.
Among other points raised against the game are that it infringes upon the privacy, and it poses threat of life and limbs to the players, who have to walk around to score a point. San Francisco-based developer of the game, Niantic, Inc., and Central and state governments have been made the respondents. Even as the world is obsessing over the new Pokemon Go augmented reality app, Niantic Labs, which co-created the game with Nintendo, has made a heartbreaking announcement for the fans.
