The government shut down a number of social networking apps, including Facebook, in Bangladesh for 22 days from November 16, 2015 to stop militant attacks and terrorist contacts.

But the government at the time confirmed that they had not shut down Facebook forever. Later, however, those social media, including Facebook, were reopened.
