Video Game Depicting School Massacre Removed After Online Uproar

“Pakistan Army Retribution" was in "poor taste," government now says.

One Twitter user described the initiative as "shameful," while reviewers at Pakistani newspaper Dawn wrote that, "No one, especially families of the victims, would ever want to re-live that dark day.”

Gunman entered the school on Dec. 16, 2014, and opened fire on staff and children, killing a total of 148 people.

The chairman of the Punjab IT Board, Umar Saif, confirmed that the agency had removed the game from the Google Play store.

"It was in poor taste," Saif wrote on Twitter. "Thank you for highlighting this mistake. We have made the amends."

Another Twitter user praised the decision to pull the app while adding that "poor decision making at the highest level needs to be answered."
