Pakistan Taleban ban sale of vulgar films, Viagra-style male potency pills


PESHAWAR (AFP) - The Pakistani Taleban have warned shopkeepers in a popular market to stop selling "obscene films" and Viagra-style male potency pills.

Shopkeepers told AFP Monday that they found handwritten pamphlets containing the warnings after opening Saturday in Karkhano market on the edge of the northwestern city of Peshawar.

"Selling sex drugs, vulgar films and obscene movies are against Sharia," said copies of the pamphlet distributed in the name of Tehreek-e-Taliban Khyber.

"All those involved in this business are warned to quit this occupation and start a lawful business or face the consequences," it said.
