A couple of days ago, the Taliban had announced that the second half of the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 will not be broadcasted in Afghanistan as the league showcases anti-Islamic content that shows girls dancing and barred hair women in attendance.
However, the latest development has stated that SportRta has agreed to broadcast the 14th edition of the IPL in Afghanistan. But then, the matches will be prerecorded and non-Islamic content will be removed from the telecast. Also, the matches will be telecast after a one-day delay.
Tweeting about the same, a reporter named, M.Ibrahim Momand wrote: “SportRta has resumed broadcasting the ongoing IPL but the matches will be recorded & telecast after the removal of some non-Islamic contents from the live matches & will broadcast on one day delay.”
