Afghanistan

We are at the advent of holy month of Ramadan. Fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam, and it holds immense importance. The holy month teaches us about patience, compassion, unity, peace and forgiveness.

 

The military organization member countries are making the decision to re-deploy soldiers in the war-hit country almost three years after the end of their combat mission that in the belief of Afghan people had no impact on the security improvement.

 

It is a fundamental right of every nation, including Muslim countries that its boys and girls should be able to grow up free from fear, safe from violence, and innocent of hatred.

 

Without doubt, the importance of providing training to the Afghan security forces to protect our motherland and also to prevent the comeback of international terrorist can’t be overestimated.

 

Without doubt, the economy of Afghanistan has had significant improvement in the past 15 years due to the infusion of billions dollars in international assistance and investments, as well as from domestic incomes.

 

The recent remark of the US officials regarding Pakistan-based terrorists is at somehow projecting America’s interest in bringing peace in Afghanistan by eliminating their (militants) hideouts in Pakistan soil.

 

Heavy clashes are ongoing between Afghan security forces and the Taliban insurgents in areas close to Kunduz city and at least five police and army outposts are under siege by the militants.

 

Corruption in Afghanistan is a widespread and growing problem in Afghan society. Afghanistan ranks 169 of 176 in Transparency International’s 2016 Corruption Perceptions Index. Corruption is consistently singled out as a problem in the war-hit country. It is a fact that society remained riddled with corruption.

The Pakistani soldiers entered Afghan soil Friday morning, according to the provincial spokesman, opening fire at the Afghan border guards in the Loqman and Nazar villages of the border district of Spin Boldak.
