Taliban Ban Women’s Voices in Commercial Ads: Local Media in Ghazni Province Warned to Comply
According to reliable sources, the Taliban’s Information and Culture Department in Ghazni has warned all local media outlets not to broadcast commercial announcements recorded with women’s voices.
On Sunday, April 30, sources say that the Taliban warned all local media outlets that any violation of this order will result in serious consequences.
In addition to the ban on women’s voices in commercial announcements, local media in Ghazni are also prohibited from making phone calls involving women in their programs.
This ban comes as all female employees of local media outlets in the province have been forced to stay home since the Taliban’s return to power in Afghanistan.
Since taking control of Afghanistan, the Taliban have imposed widespread restrictions on women, which are increasing with each passing day.
