Taliban Ban Films and Series With Women

In Afghanistan, the Taliban has imposed far-reaching restrictions on the content of television broadcasts.


For example, television stations are no longer allowed to broadcast films or series in which women appear or in which Islamic Sharia or Afghan values are violated. This is apparent from a directive from the Ministry for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice.

The broadcast of domestic or foreign films that spread foreign cultures and traditions in Afghan society and cause immorality must be stopped, the directive said.

In addition, no one should be insulted in entertainment programs. Female presenters and reporters are still allowed to perform, but they must wear Islamic jihad.

In Afghanistan, Turkish, Indian and Iranian soap operas are especially popular. American series or films are shown less often.
