Since the Taliban have taken over the government in Afghanistan, they have put a lot of pressure on the media to cover up their war crimes. Any media that did not bow down to the illegitimate and inhuman demands of this group and did not say a word, the officials and journalists of these media were interrogated and tortured and even several journalists were martyred.
This oppression and torture of this group against reporters and media caused the gates of 65% of Afghan media to be closed and dozens of other media from outside Afghanistan to continue their broadcasts.

The intelligence of the Taliban has contacted the address of this news agency three times from the addresses of different people and even warned them to prevent the spread of the crimes of this group, but each time they received a negative response.
This is because the Taliban group has surrendered the government of Afghanistan in a political program by Ashraf Ghani.

And our proposal to the International Court or the Hague Court is to decide as soon as possible about the crimes of this group and save 40 million Afghan people from the oppression of this barbaric group.
