Bangladesh has lifted its restrictions on all social mefia platforms including Skype, Twitter, WhatsApp and Viber.
Bangladeshi State Minister for Post and Telecommunications Tarana Halim told journalists on Monday night about withdrawing restrictions on all social media.
She said that her ministry has already sent directives to all relevant authorities for steps at their earliest to unblock all social media platforms.
Regarding some local media reports about the imposition of a ban on Twitter, Skype and Imo on Sunday night, she said no such ban has been imposed.
“All social media are now open in Bangladesh.”
Earlier on Thursday Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) lifted its ban on Facebook.
Citing security concerns, Bangladesh blocked Facebook, WhatsApp and viber on Nov. 18 after the Supreme Court delivered verdicts upholding the death penalties of two influential opposition leaders — Salauddin Quader Chowdhury and Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mojaheed who were executed last month for war crimes in 1971.
