This place is close to the Panjshir Valley.

In a New York Times interview published recently on Wednesday, a Taliban spokesman said, "Music is forbidden in Islam." Zabihullah Mujahid, seen as the culture minister in the new Taliban government, told the newspaper that the Taliban was hoping to "persuade the people" not to listen to music.
