Taliban To Ban Gambling in NW Pakistan
By Linda
The new pro-Taliban government in the North West of Pakistan, which borders Afghanistan, plans to impose Islamic law, banning alcohol, music, and gambling.

'We cannot allow the VCRs and tape recorders in passenger vehicles in our province,' Akram Durrani of Muttahida Majlis e-Amal said after he was elected as chief minister of the Province Friday, the Press Trust of India reported.

'Implementation of Islamic laws will be our first priority,' he said.

'Pubs and gambling dens will be closed soon,' the 42-year-old Durrani told the Assembly amid assertions by the opposition that there were no such pubs and gambling outlets in Pakistan.

Alcohol consumption and gambling are already illegal under Pakistani law, though violations frequently occur in private.
