The main reason for closing Facebook in Bangladesh is for uploading satirical pictures of Prophet Mohammad (SM) and along with the country’s Prime Minister and ex-Prime Minister. For this, a Bangladeshi citizen (Mahbub Alam Robin) was arrested from Dhaka and was charged with posting satirical pictures on Facebook. He was taken into jail by the RAB. Robin had seven fake Facebook accounts. All seven ID are being checked now for objectionable content. Bangladesh governments have said that the access to the site will be restored after the pages with the objectionable content are removed.
