Continuing with the growing restrictions on people’s daily lives and their access to entertainment, which the Taliban has institutionalized over the past two years, sources from Takhar province reveal that at least 10 individuals in the Yengi Qala district have been arrested for singing and playing musical instruments.

A source on Tuesday, February 7th, who preferred not to disclose their name, told Khama Press that the forces of the Taliban in their continued imposition of restrictions on people’s way of life, have detained at least 10 individuals who were engaged in playing musical instruments in a confined location in Yengi Qala district of Takhar province.

According to the source, “People do not even have security in their own homes.” This source added that the Taliban forces raided a house in the Safi Mangal village of Yengi Qala district on Monday, and detained at least 10 individuals who had musical instruments with them.

Local authorities of the Taliban have also confirmed the detention of 10 individuals on charges of “dancing, stomping, singing, and playing musical instruments” and stated that they were detained from a residential house.

It should be noted that the Taliban has banned the playing of music and dancing. Under the rule of the Taliban, no one is allowed to engage in playing musical instruments, singing, dancing, or tramping, and this prohibition is even enforced in wedding halls.

Furthermore, the group has issued an order restricting the operation of women’s beauty salons across the country, stating that they are no longer allowed to operate.
