Mohammad Jawad Mohseni, the head of Tamaddon TV, has denied the Taliban’s Ministry of Justice’s allegations that the private media outlet is affiliated with a political party and has usurped government land.

Mr. Mohseni stated that the land for Tamaddon TV was purchased from a private owner and is not state property in any way.

Mohammad Jawad Mohseni also mentioned that Asif Mohseni, the former head of the Islamic Movement Party of Afghanistan, had resigned from the party before establishing Tamaddon TV in 2005.

He, the current head of Tamaddon TV, is the grandson of Asif Mohseni, the founder of this private media outlet.

In a post on the social media platform X, Tamaddon TV quoted Mr. Mohseni saying, “The land for Tamaddon TV was purchased from a private owner and had legal documentation; it is not, and never has been, state property.”

The post requested that the Taliban appoint a committee to review the documents and evidence held by Tamaddon TV.

Previously, Barakatullah Rasooli, the Taliban’s Ministry of Justice spokesperson, claimed that “Tamaddon TV, Khatam al-Nabieen School, and Khatam al-Nabieen University belong to the Islamic Movement Party.”

This Taliban official asserted that the buildings of all these institutions were constructed on usurped state lands.

However, Jawad Mohseni countered that the Khatam al-Nabieen University building is leased and that the land for Khatam al-Nabieen School was legally transferred to Asif Mohseni during the previous government.

The Afghanistan Journalists Center described the Taliban’s move to close Tamaddon TV as a manifestation of the suppression of media and freedom of expression in Afghanistan.
