50% of Afghanistan TV Stations Have Stopped Operations, Says Media Watchdog

Monday, 11/21/2022

Nai, supporting open media in Afghanistan, announced on World Television Day that in the past year, 50% of Afghanistan's television stations have stopped broadcasting due to economic issues.

Nai added that 48 percent of other independent media outlets have stopped operations.

November 21 is marked as World Television Day.

Nai in a statement added that television broadcasting has been considered one of the valuable achievements of the media community over the last two decades.

The dramatic decline in the media sector of Afghanistan has been reported at a time when the Taliban has imposed severe restrictions on the media and journalists after taking power in 2021.

The Afghan media no longer has the freedom to broadcast against the views of the Taliban. Journalists have been repeatedly beaten up and threatened by the group members.
