This week, according to reports in local media, Turkey's Family and Social Policies Ministry decided that Minecraft should be banned. Aysenur Islam, Turkey's family and social policies minister, ordered an investigation into Minecraft after being told by a journalist that players get points for killing other characters, including women. Now, according to the Turkish newspaper Habertürk, the investigation has concluded that the game does encourage violence in children.

In the report sent to the ministry's legal department, it was noted that the game allowed users to build homes and bridges but that "mobs" had to be killed to protect these structures. "In short, it is a game based on violence," the report noted. Minecraft may also mislead children into thinking animals don't feel pain, the report found, or lead to "social isolation" or online bullying.

It's funny hearing people who haven't done something describe that thing.

Youth misbehaving? Clearly the new form of entertainment that didn't exist when I was their age is to blame.

"Investigating Minecraft for being violent is the equivalent of ordering an investigation into violent Lego playing.”

I wasn't planning on writing/recording an album, but now I feel like making one called 'Violent Lego Playing'.

Saying Minecraft leads to hurting animals is like saying Guitar Hero leads to actual guitar playing.

Turkey seems like a bit of a shithole

Also that guy has Islam in his name, he's blatantly doing this for religious reasons.
