Since seizing power in August 2021, the Taliban have consistently implemented laws and regulations that reflect their hardline approach to Islam. This also includes a ban on playing music in public.

Musical instruments and accessories worth hundreds of dollars went up in smoke in Saturday’s bonfire. Most of the musical instruments and equipment were collected from the marriage halls of the city. It included a guitar, other two-stringed instruments, a harmonium, a tabla, a drum, besides amplifiers and speakers.

Women have faced the brunt of the new government rules and they are not allowed to go to public places without wearing hijab.

Adolescent girls, girls and women are banned from attending schools and universities. They have also been banned from visiting parks, playgrounds and gyms.
