Taliban Compel Tolo To Air Free Azan

A worker in Tolo office and a close associate of MOBY Group director Saad
Mohseni took to Facebook to declare that once a number of workers of the
network asked Saad Mohseni: our TV airs music, comedy, obscenity and all kinds
of vulgarity every minute of the day, if it is not much trouble how about we
also air the Azan (call of prayer) every now and then so the people might at
least recognize that the workers of Tolo are Muslims and testify to their
Saad Mohseni replied: I make a profit and receive cash from various embassies,
intelligence networks and organization for every second I give air-time to
obscenity and advertisements; Azan is also an ad, unless the Ministry of Hajj
and Religious Affairs coughs up money for it, it shall never be aired on my
However since the attack by Taliban on Wednesday, this network has not only
been reminded of death but has begun broadcasting prayers, Quran recitals and
religious lectures along with the Azan, all of it free of charge!!!
Many believe that if nothing substantial was achieved through the Taliban
attack, it is enough reward that they compelled a network of immorality to air
the Quran and Azan for several days and prevented the broadcasting of obscene
shows such as the ‘Afghan Idol' and other drama serials, saving millions of
youth from drowning in sins and wasting their time on useless activities.
It is said where there is no Dub (beating) there is no Adab (manners). Tolo
had also become a radical unpunished child over the past 14 years and feared
no one. A couple of months ago when the Taliban asked Tolo for respect, the
director of this channel Saad Mohseni – who is living luxuriously in Dubai and
oblivious of the harsh atmosphere of this country – tweeted away that he is
proud to earn the enmity of Taliban and shall never bow to their demands.
But since the spanking on Wednesday the twitter account of Saad Mohseni has
donned on the black suite of mourning along with Tolo, Afghan Idol, Arman FM,
Arakozya and Lmar.
On top of tweets about mourning, crying and pleas, Saad Mohseni has also
commanded the free airing of the Azan and Quran recitals.
It is a positive development that Tolo has begun airing the Azan, may Allah
grant it perseverance in upholding its Islamic faith and grant it strength to
bid farewell to immorality. On the side note, it is a good practice to knock
some sense into corrupt individuals every now and then, not only for the
benefit society but to rectify these individuals as well.
