From several days Internet Surfers in Pakistan are reporting an issue that they are unable to access the blogspot / blogger blogs in Pakistan.

After investigation we concluded that this is all due to some error in PTCL DNS servers. PTCL has blocked some Google services in Pakistan and due to this all BlogSpot custom domains in Pakistan are redirecting to google.com.pk and Google is unable to resolve this issue.

PTCL has blocked some of Google's IP addresses in Pakistan. Some of these IP addresses are linked with blogger blogs with custom domains, so in result; all custom domains pointing to blogger blogs are redirecting to google.com.pk in Pakistan.
