No of course not, but you're talking about logic and logic has nothing to
do with religion. About a decade ago the Taliban banned kite flying, I
don't recall why but it wouldn't surprise me if it was because it exposed
the kite's genitals when it flew. Nothing, absolutely nothing, is too
stupid for religion.

This is the official statement I'll let it speak for itself:

“All those who keep pigeons above the roofs of their houses must stop doing
this entirely within a week of the date of the issuing of this statement.
Whosoever violates it will be subject to consequences of reprimand
including a financial fine, imprisonment and flogging. The ban is intended
to put a stop to the greater criminal act of harming one's Muslim and
Muslim women neighbors, revealing the pigeon's genitals and wasting time,”
