The Taliban have hired 15,000 mullahs for propaganda
Ministry says the 15,000 mullahs they hire are also being paid to reform society and fight Western thinking.
A spokesman for the Taliban's Ministry of Promoting Virtue and Prohibiting Virtue said 15,000 mullahs (Islamic religious teacher) had been recruited across Afghanistan. Mohammad Sadegh Akef said that among their missionaries, there are currently no Shiite mullahs, but the process of hiring mullahs from other religions continues.
In an interview with Entekhab Media, he said that the fight against Western ideology in Afghanistan is one of the main plans of the Taliban in the coming years.
The Taliban believe that freedom of expression, girls' education, women's work and even listening to music are part of Western thinking.
A spokesman for the Taliban's well-known ministry says the 15,000 mullahs they hire are also being paid to reform society and fight Western thinking. Meanwhile, the salaries of a large number of government employees have not been paid for months, despite a reduction of even 70%.
The Taliban are scheduled to hold a meeting of religious scholars in Kabul soon in order to govern themselves.
