Pakistan ETA refused?!

I am in Dubai with my friend. We have connecting flights to Pakistan TODAY. I got an e-mail yesterday, stating that my ETA is NOT authorized / refused. My friend, on the other hand, GOT authorized. We did the applications on the same machine, on the same hour. Our applications are almost identical (we have been travel buddies for the past 3 years, so even each visited country is the same for us). I tried calling the nearest Pakistani embassy of my home country, but they replied with an e-mail that they have nothing to do with ETA's. I am very stressed right now. No one answers the phone in Pakistan, and it's Friday... My friend is not going, if I can't go, so this is a huge financial loss for us.

I also want to mention that I myself am half Pakistani, but I have born in Scandinavia and only visited Pakistan when I was a baby. I do not hold any identity of Pakistan, so I could not apply for the family visit visa. My father does not hold a Pakistani passport anymore, so he has always applied for a tourist visa as well and gotten it.

Is your friend also half-Pakistani?
