Afghan TV U-turn on women singers

16 January 2004
Afghan state television has gone back on a decision to show female singers, saying the country is not yet ready for such broadcasts.

 
 

A song by the popular artist, Salma, was shown on Monday, the first time such images were broadcast since 1992.

But the programming chief of state-run TV, Azizullah Aryanfar, told the AFP news agency: “Current circumstances are not suitable to air women singing.”
