‘Immoral’: Taliban stage bonfire of music equipment

HERAT (AFGHANISTAN): Authorities from Afghanistan’s vice ministry created a bonfire of confiscated musicial instruments and equipment in Herat province at the weekend, deeming music immoral. “Promoting music causes moral corruption and playing it will cause the youth to go astray,” said Aziz al-Rahman al-Muhajir, head of the Herat department of the ministry for the promotion of virtue and prevention of vice. Since seizing power in August 2021, Taliban authorities have steadily imposed laws and regulations that reflect their austure vision of Islam. Saturday’s bonfire saw hundreds of dollars worth of musical gear go up in smoke. Women have borne the brunt of the new government regulations, and are not allowed in public unless wearing a hijab.
