Ministry of Propagation of Virtue and Prevention of Vice

The Ministry of Propagation of Virtue and Prevention of Vice was formed under the previous Taliban regime and later banned after the US invasion of Afghanistan. It was reconstituted by the Taliban-led Afghan government recently to ensure the strict adherence to the Sharia Law.
During the earlier Taliban rule, the ministry had become infamous for the strict implementation of the Sharia Law, including the prohibition of women from leaving their homes without a male companion and the ban on music and other forms of entertainment. Under this regime, moral police were established in every street to punish violators of Sharia Law.
