The programmes – modelled on Western favourites such as The Voice and Pop Idol – are hugely popular in a country with a young population and where television ownership has rocketed since the Taliban were ousted from Kabul in 2001.
At the same time there is a growing backlash against what many see as foreign values.
Abdul Sattar Khawasi, a parliamentarian, is leading the campaign and has secured a promise from the Afghan minister of information to review the programmes.
“I have already made it clear in the lower house that I am going to start a jihad against these kind of shows and programmes on our television channels,” he said.

Women are rarely seen outside the home and only then hidden beneath a burka…….The only astonishing thing is that the West and its acolytes in the region pretend to be astonished ! was it ever going to conclude in any other way ? No. Meanwhile in the EU’s Yu-Kay province, Toilet attendant-in-Chief Cameron has promised a jihad against Internet search engines. plus ca change.
