First i think may be it is due to slow internet connection but i am surprised to see all other heavy websites are opening perfectly. Then i decide to use proxy to see whether it is a connection problem or something other. And i am surprised! Facebook is working correctly on proxy sites.

I have send many mail and messages to PTA officials to let me know the reason, but all in vain. But you can still access Facebook by using proxy sites. If you want to learn how to open such blocked websites then you must read to read these 5 ways to open Blocked sites in Pakistan.
Facebook Blocked in Pakistan Temporary by PTA :
We are continuously on contact with PTA (Pakistan Telecommunication Authority) officials, but they are not providing the reason why they banned facebook and when will they withdraw the ban. Instead of Facebook, some other major websites like Ahrefs and other major popular website are also not accessible from PTCL internet. You can access facebook by your Mobile internet connection. It is just blocked for PTCL subscribers. Seem like there is a issue with PTCL internet service provider. Currently there is no any official announcement come for FB banning. It is supposed that it is a temporary issue and will resolve soon – InshaALLAH.
