In Kabul, Afghanistan dog fighting is semi-legal. Years ago the Taliban banned the sport and deemed it Haram (sinful, in Islamic terms) but the sport is back and watched by many, as large crowds continue to flock to fights.

Although it’s seen by many as a cruel and unusual sport, the Police don’t seem to mind it much and in fact tolerate it but they can’t be seen to be encouraging it.

A possible reason why dog fights have become popular once again in Afghanistan is since fighting dogs are were an important part of their lives and history, when the Taliban enforced their regime over them, they took away many liberties that the Afghans had. So in a way fighting dogs shows the progress from the Taliban years, when so many liberties were banned.
