Taliban ban music, female voices on TV, radio channels in Kandahar

The Taliban have banned music and female voices on television and radio channels in Afghanistan’s Kandahar.

This comes after some media outlets removed their female anchors after the Taliban took over Afghanistan on August 15. Local media in Kabul also reported that several women staff members were asked to return from their workplaces since the takeover.

However, the Taliban has assured that they would let women continue working and would allow them to study under Islamic law.

Contrary to the promises made by the Taliban, reports from local media show that women have started facing problems in their daily life.

In the past tenure, the Taliban was famous for their harsh treatment of women which included covering their heads and being accompanied by a male family member every time they stepped out of their homes.
