MUSIC DIES IN SOMALIA

by neo

Pardon my week delay on current events, but here’s another tidbit for the “in case you missed it section” – this article comes from BBC News:

Most radio stations in Somalia have stopped playing music, on the orders of Islamist Hizbul-Islam insurgents who say that songs are un-Islamic. The stations said they had to comply with the ban, as if they did not, they would be putting their lives at risk. The BBC correspondent in Somalia says this latest order has strong echoes of the Taliban in Afghanistan.  In the past, militants in some areas have banned watching films and football and forced men to grow beards. Somalia has not had a functioning central government since 1991 and the Islamist militants control large parts of its territory. The transitional government — backed by African Union troops and UN funds — controls only a small part of the capital, Mogadishu.

    An growing number of insurance corporations wont even give a quote to modders under 30, and a fair bigger quantity won’t provide a quote to teenage
    drivers.

    Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment
    (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying
    your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger
    but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for rookie blog writers?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering
    what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog
    like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any tips or advice would be greatly
    appreciated. Kudos
