The Taliban has only been in control of Afghanistan for a few weeks, but it had made clear right away it will root out any threat it perceives promptly and destroy it.
That’s perhaps why it has dispatched execution squads to kill Christians.
And why it has broken into the offices of an all-woman orchestra and destroyed the instruments.
Today music died in Afghanistan. And with that a huge part of our culture died too. The once renowned all-female “Zohra Orchestra” was broken into and the Taliban attacked the insteuments. #Afganisthan pic.twitter.com/60lMpVza3g

According to a report at JihadWatch, Islam expert Robert Spencer cited the simple online report, “Today music died in Afghanistan. And with that a huge part of our culture died too. The once renowned all-female ‘Zohra Orchestra’ was broken into and the Taliban attacked the instruments.”
Spencer, who long as worked to expose the violence of Islam, explained, “Whenever I note that Islamic law forbids music (aside from nasheeds, a cappella songs encouraging jihad), I am excoriated as a greasy Islamophobe, but it’s nonetheless true.”
He quoted several Islamic instructions from that faith’s Hadiths, or the Quran, including:
_Hadith Qudsi 19:5: “The Prophet said that Allah commanded him to destroy all the musical instruments, idols, crosses and all the trappings of ignorance.” (The Hadith Qudsi, or holy Hadith, are those in which Muhammad transmits the words of Allah, although those words are not in the Qur’an.)”
_(1) “Allah Mighty and Majestic sent me as a guidance and mercy to believers and commanded me to do away with musical instruments, flutes, strings, crucifixes, and the affair of the pre-Islamic period of ignorance.”
_”(2) “On the Day of Resurrection, Allah will pour molten lead into the ears of whoever sits listening to a songstress.”
_(3) “Song makes hypocrisy grow in the heart as water does herbage.”
