What happened:

On January 2, a team of Afghan intelligence agents arrested three liquor dealers after pouring more than three thousand liters of liquor into a canal in Kabul. The viral video on Twitter shows the Taliban pouring liquor into the canal as they cover the faces of three drug dealers who are hand-cuffed. Afghan Islamic Press tweeted“Taliban security forces rounded up a dozen liquor sellers in western Nimroz province.” 

Details:

The footage released by the General Directorate of Intelligence shows the agent pouring barrels as one in the background is heard saying, “God has called alcohol ugly, an abomination, Muslims should seriously abstain from making and delivering it.” It is pertinent to mention that selling and consuming alcohol was also banned under Ashraf Ghani’s leadership. 

What else:

 Gulf News in its report, claimed, “Since the Islamists seized power on August 15 the frequency of raids, including on drug addicts, has increased across the country.” At the same time, EuroNews quoted a religious scholar Sheikh Zahorullah from Afghanistan: “The Prophet of Islam has cursed all those involved in making it and delivering it. Drinking is even worse, all bad things in the nation are caused by alcohol.”
