Taliban spokesman, Inamullah Samangani, recently tweeted that TikTok is “misleading the younger generation.”
Consequently, the Taliban has banned TikTok, claiming the “filthy content was not consistent with Islamic laws.”
The Taliban has also banned PUBG battlegrounds, a popular South Korean action game.
Despite a mere 23% of the country having internet access, Samangani claims “We’ve received a lot of complaints about how the TikTok app and the PUBG game are wasting people’s time.”
Adding, “The ministry of communications and information technology was ordered to remove the apps from internet servers and make them inaccessible to everyone in Afghanistan.”
The announcement comes days after several deadly attacks rocked the capital of Kabul, and the border.
