General censorship[]

  • The Press Law that was implemented in 1965 gave press freedom in Afghanistan.
  • However, under the Khalq communist regime, opposition was violently suppressed.
  • When the United Nations Convention against Torture was signed by Afghanistan in 1987, Babrak Karmal promised to end the brutality of the Khalq.
  • When most of Afghanistan was under Taliban rule from 1996 to 2001, television, movies, and music were outlawed. Women had virtually no rights.

Presently, Afghanistan ranks remarkably better than its neighbours in terms of press freedom, although it is still not so good. Despite Article 34 of the Afghan Constitution allowing freedom of speech and press, self-censorship by journalists remains common.
