Afghanistan has had a sad past. The Taliban is a very oppressive regime. The people have very few freedoms. The Taliban government is very harsh. The punishments for minor infractions, many of which we would not consider infractions, are severe.
Under the Taliban, there was (and still is in some parts of the country) a great deal of deprivation of liberty in Afghanistan. The Taliban imposed theocratic rule on the country and deprived many people of various kinds of liberty.
For example, under the Taliban, recorded music was banned and people would have tapes taken away from them and destroyed. The Taliban also enforced their ideas of proper dress and grooming on people, punishing those men who did not wear beards or those women who did not dress modestly enough.
By taking these sorts of actions, the Taliban deprived people in Afghanistan of their liberty to act as they pleased.
