The Taliban who are in power in Afghanistan have now called music immoral. Not only this, Taliban officials set fire to confiscated musical instruments and musical instruments in Herat province. Regarding this, it was said on his behalf that this is a step taken for the prevention of evil.

Aziz Al-Rahman Al-Muhajir, head of the Herat Department of the Ministry for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Evil, made a statement regarding the matter. “Promoting music leads to moral degradation and playing it leads the youth astray,” he said.

It may be known that in August 2021, the Taliban came to power in Afghanistan. Since then, Taliban officials have consistently implemented laws and regulations that reflect their harsher approach to Islam. This also includes a ban on playing music in public. In this episode, musical instruments worth hundreds of dollars were thrown into the Saturday bonfire.

Much of this was collected from marriage halls in the city. These included a guitar, 2 other stringed instruments, a harmonium, a tabla, amplifier and speakers.

Taliban fire: Taliban ban on beauty parlor

The Taliban had announced a few days ago that all beauty parlors in Afghanistan should now be closed. Sadiq Akif Mehjar, a spokesman for the Taliban’s Ministry of Virtue and Vice, did not say whether force would be used against beauty parlors that did not comply with the order.

This was the latest step in a series of restrictions on the rights and freedoms of women and girls in Afghanistan. Earlier, their education, going to public places and most of the jobs have been banned.

These arguments of Taliban behind the restrictions

The Taliban said it decided to ban beauty parlors because they were providing services that are forbidden in Islam. Along with this, the boy’s families have to face financial problems during the marriage. Earlier, the Taliban had given a month’s time to close the beauty parlour.

The decision was met with sporadic protests, including a rally of beauticians and make-up artists in Kabul. Security forces used force and fired shots in the air to disperse the protesters during this demonstration.

International groups expressed concern

International groups have also expressed concern about the Taliban ban. The UN said it was talking to Afghan officials to lift the sanctions.

UN Deputy Spokesperson Farhan Haq said UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres supported the efforts of the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA), which urged Taliban officials not to ban beauty parlours. UNAMA said that imposing this restriction on women’s rights would have a negative impact on the economy.
