Despite promising that the Taliban group will be more liberal than they were 20 years ago, the terrorist group that has taken over Afghanistan is proving that not much has changed with their policies.

A Taliban leader has announced that music will be banned in Afghanistan and women will be required to travel with a male chaperone on trips that last several days.

In an interview with the New York Times, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said while women will eventually be allowed to return to work and go on trips to school, and hospitals, they would need a male chaperone for trips that last several days.

He added that music will be banned in the country.

Mujahid said: “Music is forbidden in Islam, but we’re hoping that we can persuade people not to do such things, instead of pressure them.”

Still, he said, things will be different under this Taliban rule than the previous regime. 

Rejecting reports that the Taliban is already extracting vengeance on those who opposed them, Mujahid said: “We want to build the future and forget what happened in the past.”
