Women banned from Afghan television dramas under new Taliban media rules Updated: 2021-11-23 07:29:47 KST

The Taliban have now banned women from appearing in television dramas in Afghanistan under the group's new media restriction.
According to the government's guidelines issued to broadcasters on Sunday, all dramas, soap operas and entertainment shows featuring women are now prohibited.
Among the latest guidelines, female news presenters must now wear headscarves on screens, while men on screen must wear "proper clothes", although the guideline does not specify which types of clothes are considered "proper".
Rules also state that entertainment and comedy programs "should not be based on insulting others," nor "for the insult of human dignity and Islamic values."
Under the previous Taliban government, television was prohibited, as well as most other forms of media.
The latest rules also come as the Taliban mark 100 days since retaking power in the country.
