The Taliban’s Directorate for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice in Herat has labeled internet cafes a waste of young people’s time and a cause of their misguidedness.
According to statistics, over a thousand internet cafes were operating in Herat, providing a livelihood for hundreds of people.
It is worth noting that Taliban also banned game zones and tape shops in Herat last week.
The recent restrictions imposed by Taliban in Herat have caused nearly a thousand people to lose their jobs.
