PressTV 6 views

Afghanistan has been celebrating Nowruz, the Persian New Year for centuries. It is usually a colorful and joyous festival, welcoming spring and a new life. But the celebration has been dampened since the Taliban’s takeover in 2021, and the subsequent economic hardships. Nowruz is no longer an official holiday in Afghanistan. However, the Taliban authorities say they won’t prevent people from celebrating the festival.
