The government has decided to temporarily block social media sites including Facebook and Instagram.

Presidential Secretariat said in a statement that the decision to block social media was taken as false news reports were spreading through social media.

The statement added that security forces were conducting comprehensive investigations into the incidents of explosions and that the blockage would be effective until investigations were completed.

    If only such blocks to social media was done, the digana and other incidents would not have escalated. AND yet the perpetrators are roaming scot free.
