According to media reports citing an announcement by Taliban-led telecommunication, the Taliban will ban TikTok and PUBG applications in Afghanistan within the next 3 months.

In a meeting with the representatives of the security sectors and a representative from the Sharia law enforcement administration, the Taliban announced the ban of both TikTok and PUBG applications in Afghanistan within 90 days.

Khaama Press reported that TikTok will be banned within the next month while PUBG will be banned within the next 90 days.

Information regarding this has been shared by Afghanistan's telecommunication and internet service providers. Guidelines are to be followed within the stipulated time.

Earlier, the interim government of Afghanistan led by the Taliban blocked more than 23 million websites for displaying what it considers immoral content over the year since the Taliban took power in the country.

"We have blocked 23.4 million websites. They are changing their pages every time. So, when you block one website another one will be active," said acting Minister Najibullah Haqqani.

Deputy communications minister, Ahmad Masoud Latif Rai, criticized Facebook for its reluctance to cooperate with the Taliban authorities on content moderation at the same conference.

The rights of Afghan media houses and their functions have rolled back since the Taliban took over Afghanistan in mid-August last year.
