Morality police patrol Taliban strongholds

Taliban-controlled areas are monitored by religious officials to ensure strict Islamic laws are followed.

During the rule of the Taliban, Afghanistan’s morality police were known for their rigid interpretation of Islamic law.
Afghans were punished for shaving their beards or listening to music on their mobile phones.
Eleven years after the fall of the Taliban, these rules still remain in force under areas under Taliban control.

Al Jazeera’s James Bays has this exclusive report from Kunar, northeast Afghanistan.
