New Delhi: The Taliban, which occupied Afghanistan, has issued a new decree, increasing the ban on women. It has issued 'religious guidelines' on Sunday. In which the television channels of the country have been asked to stop those TV serials in which female actresses work. The Taliban's Ministry of Ethics and Misconduct Elimination has issued this first such order to the Afghan media.

Taliban's new religious guidelines:

Along with this, the Taliban has asked female journalists on television that they must wear a hijab while presenting news reports. The ministry has asked the channels not to air films or programs that show anything about the Prophet Muhammad or other dignitaries (Taliban Rules For Afghan Media). It has called for a ban on films or programs that are against Islamic and Afghan values.


Ban on shows of female actors:

Ministry spokesman Hakif Mohajir told AFP news agency, 'These are not rules but religious guidelines.' These new guidelines have been widely circulated on social media on Sunday evening (Taliban New Religious Guidelines). The Taliban had promised in the Doha agreement that it would not rule as before and came with an open mind. But even then they started applying the rules and telling what women can and cannot wear.

Along with this, the Taliban had promised media freedom, but in Afghanistan many journalists are being assaulted, they are being tortured. The Taliban, which captured the country on 15 August, has returned to power after 20 years.

It has been ruled by a West-backed government for two decades, which fell after being taken over by the Taliban. During the time of this government, Afghan media has made a lot of progress (Taliban Rule in Afghanistan). After the ouster of the Taliban from power in 2001, there has been a huge investment in the private sector. Dozens of TV and radio channels have been started.
