The Taliban may have left Afghanistan, but the shadows remain.

 

The Afghanistan government has banned Indian television serials because they feel it wrongly influences their culture and traditions.

 

In their words: 'Indian serials are un-Islamic.'

 

Most Indian serials are about traditional North Indian families, and tend to celebrate Hindu festivals with more gusto than any other festival.

 

Do you think Indian telly soaps promote the Hindu way of life? Was the Afghan government right in banning them?

 

Have your say!
