According to local sources in Herat, after a week-long closure, the Taliban has allowed internet cafes in this province to reopen.
Sources on Sunday, April 9, told Hast-e Subh that the Taliban gave permission for the operation of internet cafes in Herat on the condition that women are not allowed to enter.
The Taliban’s morality police have warned internet cafe owners in Herat to “start their businesses, but not allow girls and boys under the age of 15 to enter.”
The Taliban has also warned that if women and boys under the age of 15 are present, these internet cafes will be closed again.
So far, the Taliban has not officially commented on the matter.
It should be noted that the Taliban closed the doors of all internet cafes in Herat more than a week ago, citing “youth corruption” as the reason for the closure.
