The Taliban, which recently banned long hairstyles and selfies in Afghanistan , has set new rules for weddings. Now the holidays will be held without live music.
This was reported by Afghanistan International .
On October 6, it became known that the Taliban had held a meeting to promote honesty. The meeting was also attended by 14 hotel business owners in Kabul. The Taliban has banned live music at weddings and made a new demand.
People who come to celebrate the wedding will be divided into two halls – men’s and women’s. In addition, the Taliban banned weddings before meals.
Earlier, governors tried to meet the Taliban’s demands and divided the wedding halls with a special partition. However, members of the movement said that men could still hear women’s voices, and women could also hear through the “barrier” of what men were saying. Therefore, the Taliban banned weddings in one hall, now men and women will sit at the celebration completely separately.
The new Taliban ban is reportedly not only violating people’s rights. Musicians and singers who earned their living by performing at weddings have completely lost the opportunity to do their job. Therefore, artists will not be able to provide for themselves and their families, their financial difficulties can become a serious problem.
