The service of Facebook, Viber and Whatsapp are 
blocked from now till further notice. It has been 
ordered by Begum Tarana Halim, State Minister, Post 
and Telecommunications. 

I just saw this on BdNOG and thought it might be 
interesting to others here and where some of the 
internet is headed...

Wow, all of these govt's just can't seem to deal 
with not being able to completely control *everything* 
about the populace.

So, in Bangladesh, no communicating with your social 
peers, no free calls, text or picture sharing and no 
mobile messaging.  The new State Minister for Post 
and Telecommunications in Bangladesh wants her money.

It'd be interesting to hear how they're attempting 
to make it happen.
