Taliban To Shopkeepers: Don’t Sell Viagra

PESHAWAR, Pakistan (February 11, 2013)--The Taliban have warned shopkeepers in Pakistan not to sell such sex-related drugs as Viagra, the head of a trade association for a large market in northwestern Pakistan said.

Shamsher Khan Afridi said he received a text message from the Pakistani Taliban on Saturday with the warning.

Afridi said Monday that he distributed a pamphlet to thousands of shopkeepers in the Karkhano market in Peshawar city asking them to comply with the order.

Afridi said the Taliban's message warned that selling sex-related drugs and obscene movies was against Islam.

The Pakistani Taliban follow a hard-line version of Islam and have bombed shops selling music and movies in Peshawar in the past.

The group has also been waging a bloody insurgency against the government that has killed thousands.
