the Taliban ban the diffusion of the IPL in Afghanistan – Marseille News

IPL 2021Former media director and Afghanistan Cricket Board reporter Ibrahim Momand said live broadcasts of IPL matches were banned due to possible “anti-Islamic” content.

Taliban-ruled Afghanistan has banned the broadcast of the hugely popular Indian Premier League (IPL) in the country due to the presence of « female spectators and spectators » in the stadiums.

Since the Taliban took control of the conflict-torn country last month, the international sports community has worried about the fundamentalist group’s stance on women participating in sport.

Former media director and Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) journalist Ibrahim Momand said live broadcasts of IPL matches were banned due to possible “anti-Islamic” content.

“Afghan National Television will not broadcast @IPL as usual as it would have been banned from live matches resumed tonight due to possible anti-Islamic content, girls dancing and the presence of women with barred hair (sic) in the (stadium) by the Islamic Emirates of the Taliban, ”Momand tweeted on Sunday when IPL resumed action.

Another journalist, Fawad Aman, who was also a spokesperson for the Defense Ministry according to his Twitter account, wrote: “Ridiculous: the Taliban have banned the broadcasting of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in Afghanistan.

“The Taliban have warned that the Afghan media should not broadcast the Indian Cricket League due to the girls dancing and the presence of women and spectators in the stadiums. « 

Top Afghan cricketers like Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi and Mujeeb ur Rahman compete in IPL 2021.

The second phase of the IPL resumed Sunday in the United Arab Emirates with a game between the Chennai Super Kings and the defending champions Mumbai Indians.

According to a news report, the new Afghan sports chief said last week that the Taliban would allow 400 sports, but declined to say anything about women’s participation.

“Please don’t ask more questions about women,” he reportedly said.

During the regime of the extremist group from 1996 to 2001, women were banned from practicing any sport.

After taking control of the country last month, the group stressed that women’s rights would be respected under Islam.

The knockout stage is scheduled to start on October 10 and the final on October 15.
