Afghan officials hate what's on TV

A popular Afghan television channel, known for its Indian soap operas and "Pop
Idol"-style talent contest, has come under pressure from Afghan officials for
broadcasting what they call "immoral and un-Islamic" programs.
FYI, Pop Idol is the British show on which American Idol is based. Surprising that Afghan officials would hate something so superficial.
