Afghanistan Taliban Ban Playing Music In Public.

Following their takeover of Afghanistan government, the Taliban have ordered that their would be more playing of music in public.

Mujahid the chief spokesman for the movement announced the new ban in an interview where he tried to stress that the movement had changed since its first government.

“Music is forbidden in Islam, but we’re hoping that we can persuade people not to do such things, instead of pressuring them.” Zabiullah Mujahid told the New York Times.

Earlier this week Mr Mujahid said female government workers should remain at home until the Taliban had reimposed security, because its fighters were unused to dealing with women.

“If they go to school, the office, university, or the hospital, they don’t need a [male guardian],” Mujahid stated as he revealed that concerns that the Taliban would again force women to stay at home were baseless and that the requirement for a male chaperone was misunderstood.

Mujahid also denied reports that Afghans with valid travel documents were being prevented from entering the airport.

Founded in 1994 The Taliban, which refers to itself as the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, is a Deobandi Islamist religious-political movement and military organization in Afghanistan, regarded by many governments and organizations as terrorists.
