Muhajir Farahi, acting Deputy Minister of Publications at the Ministry of Information and Culture, emphasized in a meeting with journalists in Balkh province that a financial support fund for the media will be established to support journalists in the country.

Afghanistan National Radio and Television, under the control of the Taliban, reported on Monday, June 3, about the Deputy Minister’s visit to Balkh province.

The report stated that establishing this fund will “support and strengthen media activities” in the country.

It was mentioned that during these meetings, discussions were held on issues, including the concerns, demands, and challenges faced by journalists and the media.

Additionally, Farahi emphasized that “the Taliban administration is working to address the problems and demands of journalists and media organizations.”

However, in the past two years, many media outlets have ceased operations due to economic problems and lack of access to information.

According to a report by Reporters Without Borders, 547 media outlets, 80 television networks, 137 radio networks, and 13 news agencies have ceased operations in the country in the past two years.

Female journalists in Afghanistan are facing an increasingly dire situation. They are subjected to severe restrictions, lack of access to information, and constant threats to their safety. Many have been forced to leave their profession due to the oppressive environment.

The restrictions on female journalists limit their ability to work and contribute to a significant reduction in the diversity of news coverage. This lack of diverse perspectives hampers the public’s access to comprehensive and balanced information, further weakening the media landscape in Afghanistan.
