International Federation of Journalists in its latest report said that 153 media outlets have hardly been impacted since the Taliban takeover and are on verge of closing their offices forever.

The report also reads that the freedom of speech has been curtailed, female journalists are left out of jobs, and violation against journalists has also been increased.

The report reads that the self-safety of journalists is also at risk and added that the seizure of vehicles from journalists and their intimidation is rather concerning.

“7000 Afghan journalists have been adversely affected by the Taliban takeover.” Reads the report.

Journalism and freedom of speech and media have completely changed their shape after August 15 and most of the journalists are afraid to work.

Earlier, MILMA was the first local radio station in Paktika province that shut its office after ten years of broadcast.
