Kabul (BNA) The recent move of Kabul garrison for collecting illegal arms and reviewing the process of distribution of license for carrying weapon, and stopping vehicle with black glasses is a good move for implement the law and ensuring public interests. Therefore it should be backed.
BNA military affairs commenting on the issue writes recently Kabul Garrison as  coordinator of military and security affairs in the capital has started the work of collecting illegal weapons, stopping the vehicles with black glasses and a new process for distribution of weapon for deserved people.
If we look precisely at the horrible security situation in the capital beside terroristic incidents, other criminal incidents are the factors of insecurity in city which have caused the concerns of Kabul citizens.
Today, the factor of   most of the crimes including abduction, robbery and other inhuman criminal acts   that happen in the capital is using black glasses vehicles and the existence of illegal weapons which is a serious threat for the security and safety of the citizens of the city which caused severe criticism addressing the relevant authorities of the government.
Without doubt, the anxieties and demands of people have made the state to take effective measures for collecting illegal weapons and stopping the vehicles with black glasses and assigned Kabul Garrison to fulfill the program in practice,
The Afghan people have tasted the bitter flavor of illegalities, tyrannies and seriously believe that any move toward ensuring public interests and protecting the people based on law should be honestly supported and honored.
Unfortunately, this beneficial act of Kabul Garrison has faced the opposition of certain people, among them a number of parliament members have opposed inquiring their bodyguards and checking their vehicles by security personnel that would be far away from the expectation of people from their representatives.
We have painful stories from breaching the law by influence and powerful persons in our community. As some times ago, the personnel of a security post in Pul-I – Charkhy area, Kabul city were beaten by the bodyguard of powerful person just for the security persons wanted to check the vehicle which this gentleman driving in.
We have also heard the story of carrying the in charge of Taliban intelligence service in a police vehicle from Baghalan to Kabul.
Therefore these clear facts and evidences show that carrying weapon by undeserved people and black glasses vehicles are behind many crimes that place in the country. This critical situation asks a high authority of government, including members of the cabinet and parliament and people as a whole to join hands for implementing the program launched by Kabul Garrison and support the process and appreciate the work and devotion of security personnel who implement the program and honestly support them.
