Traffic police in the Pakistani city of Karachi said Thursday they have launched a campaign to stop music being played in public transport due to complaints from women.
The authorities denied the move was in response to a reported warning from the Taliban, who consider music sinful according to their fundamentalist interpretation of Islam.
"No there was no threat to the traffic police from anyone, it is entirely baseless," Arif Hanif, Karachi traffic police chief AFP.
"We only got complaints from the women commuters and nothing else," Hanif said.
