ISLAMABAD ( ABRAR MUSTAFA )
All major banks closed down their ATM services due to Muharram. This step has been taken after bank management decided to take steps in case of trouble and looting on Muharram. Before this the decision to block cellular services has been taken after which they were blocked on today in different parts of the country and tomorrow they will be blocked across the major cities as well.
Though cellular services have been blocked before this has been the first time that online banking has been shut down. This has resulted in frustration among consumers of online banking as it was not announced earlier.
