Facebook spokesperson Christine Chen said the company had declined the request in order to protect the rights of its users.

Eariler, IT Secretary, Rizwan Bashir explained that the Facebook account is verified through e-mail which is not a secure procedure. He added that connecting opening of account with mobile number is more secure as now SIMS are biometrically verified in Pakistan. But now Facebook has declined to accept this offer.
