Afghanistan: Taliban officially bans all foreign TV series

Date:

The Taliban has officially banned the broadcast of all foreign TV series in Afghanistan. “The Taliban clearly said to stop showing any foreign TV series translated into Dari or Pashto (official languages of Afghanistan),” a participant of the meeting of Afghan broadcasters said.

He added that the new authorities said that they would not accept any excuses for violating the ban. “There is no film industry in Afghanistan, and there are no shows or movies that can replace the foreign ones. This restriction means people have to turn off the TV sets,” the source said. Previously, foreign TV series, including the ones produced in India and Turkey, were broadcast in Afghanistan.

The situation of human rights in Afghanistan has worsened since the collapse of the Afghan government and the Taliban’s return to power in August last year. Although the fighting in the country has ended, serious human rights violations continue unabated.

The Taliban have committed and continue to commit human rights violations including extrajudicial executions, enforced disappearances, torture, arbitrary detentions, a massive rollback of the rights of women and girls, censorship of and attacks against the media. Thousands of Afghans fled the country fearful of the Taliban, widespread violation of human rights, and the deprivation of women and girls of their freedoms.
