‘Ridiculous, Awful’: Twitter Reacts as Taliban Bans IPL Telecast in Afghanistan
A lot of users online have expressed their displeasure at this announcement.
In the wake of the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan, a lot of rules have been changed for the people there, especially women who have been forced back decades when it comes to laws and customs. Covered clothing agains the women's wishes, separate education classrooms for men and women, etc., are only examples of some of the draconian laws that have been imposed.
Of these, the Taliban's latest rules also includes a total ban on the telecase of the IPL in Afghanistan, because of the 'girls dancing and the presence of female audience and spectators in stadiums.'
The Taliban has reportedly warned all media stations to not telecast the IPL at all due to its "anti-Islam contents."
The decision has sparked a lot of outrage online, where people have expressed their concerns regarding the backwardness of the ban and how it is illogical.
