Kabul (BNA) Civic movements identify democracy and demonstrate the will of people for ensuring their legal rights supports by the state.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes during the recent days some sections of the north of the country were the scene of demonstrations in support of a commander of National Islamic Movement of Afghanistan.
Nizamudding Qaisari one of the commanders of the movement accusing of using force illegally and violating the law was arrested by security forces last week. The detention of this local commander caused the reaction of people by conducting demonstrations accompanied with violence in support of the commander which damaged some public utility properties and institutions.
The arrest of this local commander alongside several other notorious commanders accused of misusing in the country is a good commence in struggle against irresponsible armed people should not provide the situation for other evil people to use the process for their own advantage.
Whether the demonstrations have been planned or not is a separate matter, but what is of great importance is the accusations against Qaisari which led to his detention. The state should present proper reasons for the people who demonstrate against the detention of Qaisary and try to calm and satisfy them. The relevant authorities should clearly explain that they are serious in struggle against anyone who misuses force and power.  
In addition, there is much talking about the detention of Qaisari among civic and political circles; they insist that it is not only Faryab people who have been harassed by irresponsible armed people.  This problem even exists in Kabul the capital of Afghanistan. We have seen time and again that armed men affiliated to certain people have beaten police, passersby, journalists and shopkeepers and did not care in to instructions of security forces.
This problem is tangible in Herat, Kandahar, Parwan, Kapisa, Badakhshan, Takhar, Bamya, Paktia, Nangarhar etc.  It would be better what have happened in Faryab should be practiced in Kabul and other places against irresponsible armed people and force them to observe the law and be accountable.
The Afghan people never forget the statement of President Ghani which says,:” no Afghan has superiority to other Afghan”.
Any move that leads to good governance and democracy supported by the people but they insist that the state has obligation to respond to any movement or program.
The political experts warned that the state should pursue the new developments in north of the country with high consciousness, otherwise, the opportunists misusing the situation work for achieving their own evil objectives.

Kabul (BNA) The rights and obligation of a Muslim over another Muslim has of great value that not only strengthens social relations among Muslims but also cause the blessing of Almighty God in the world and dooms day.
BNA analyst of religious affairs commenting on the issue writes there are many verses in Holy Quran and speeches quoted from the Great prophet that insist on good relations among Muslims and humanity as a whole.
Almighty God in order His creatures man and women have a happy life on earth, have obliged them for performing certain obligations and duties which strengthen social, economic and political relations among Muslims.
Studying the speeches quoted from the Great prophet one can understand that how much great Islam emphasizes on good and brotherly relations among Muslims.
In the quoted speeches, it has certified that visiting patience, participation in funeral ceremonies, expressing sympathy and condolence to the family of deceased man or woman are among the rights a Muslim has committed of doing them.
Although, there are many good and valuable matters in Islamic law, but there are certain people who ignoring those spiritually and heavenly realities stance against them, while they are obliged in observing Islamic laws and disseminating them among other Muslims.
There are despairing stories that in one of the districts of Paktia province, some clergy men are abstaining from reciting the prayer for the brave Afghan soldiers who have lost their lives for the cause of homeland and independence of the country.   Some of them have said that they could not say the prayers because the threat of Taliban.
Such dealing by a religious scholar, a Imam of a mosque and a Muslim man is in fact a deviation from Islamic principles and teachings while they enjoy a safe and secure life, receive salary from the state but fearing of Taliban who know nothing about Islam and jihad values, avoid reciting prayers for the soul of people who been martyred for the cause of Islam, national sovereignty independence and humanity in general.
The religious scholars who are the heirs of prophets are obliged for exercising many obligations and duties among them standing against oppressors and stating the facts, but regretfully, some of the religious scholars ignoring their noble obligations and duties instructed by Almighty God and the prophet follow the commands and orders of tyrant Taliban who are used as a means by foreigners.

Kabul (BNA) Afghan people the main victim of terrorism in the region ask America and its western allies to exercise more pressure on Pakistan to end wasting time.
BNA military affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes US deputy foreign secretary recently visited Pakistan army chief in Islamabad. This high ranking US diplomat in her visit with the most powerful man in Pakistan army insisted that Pakistan can play a significant role in ending war in Afghanistan and asked that country to cooperate US and Afghan government in that regard.
This American diplomat without mentioning the name of Pakistan has said that the main barrier of peace in Afghanistan is Taliban stationed outside the country.
In the same time US embassy to Islamabad has said that the two sides have agreed on consistent cooperation over various issues.
According Afghan military experts, lately, the tone of American authorities to Pakistan has become softer and encourages Pakistan for cooperating US and Afghanistan. While with commencement of President Trump’s career in White House, his administration openly warned Pakistan for continuation of supporting terrorism.
Supporting and hosting Pakistan from terrorist groups among them IS and Taliban have always been at focus of US attention which started from Obama’s term of office and Mr. Trump administration took it more serious.
The political elites sat that Pakistan with its tricky policy played very well with Americans and for achieving it objectives and introducing itself as a faithful US friend, succeeded to achieve it objectives.
According the diplomats Pakistan during the last two years did its best to change the opinion of President Trump’s office. Although. Pakistan in this game lost nothing also gave no any privileges to America in struggle against terrorism. Afghan people with a critic view on US treatment with Pakistan insist that the existence of such a relation between US and Pakistan affected badly the situation of Afghanistan.
They  say US should end such a stance, considering the facts and realities of the region understand that policy of anger and reconciliation, invasion and retreating in struggle against terrorism cannot solve any problem, but further encourage Pakistan to continue its evil plans for achieving its ambitious goals in the region .
Improper relations of US in the region, has taken many opportunities from America and further encouraged Pakistan in following its policies for supporting terrorism. Therefore,  it would be better for US to come to the scene with transparent and reasonable strategy and should know that Afghanistan cannot be the center of games, exhibiting power and wasting time in diplomatic aspects.

Zaranj (BNA) Afghanistan is a country with having of varieties of cultural ethnical groups of people. Tolerance and living in unity is an accepted principle in their life, this notable principle not should be only preserved, but should be extended.
BNA social affairs commenting on the issue writes recently Jalalabad city the target of a tragic terrorist attack, which were much different from earlier incidents, this time a terrorist exploded himself among our Sikh compatriots killing 19 people, most of the victims of barbaric incident were Sikhs inhabitants of Afghanistan.
They were targeted when they intended to visit the president of the country and share their views with him. Unfortunately brutal and dark minded terrorists who cannot sustain the humanity and Islamic ethic targeting them opened a new chapter in their crimes’ book.
Attack on our Sikh compatriots is an example of brutality and ignorance of terrorist groups who know nothing but violence, killing, destruction and savagery, learnt behind the Afghan borders and hatred, pessimism and wickedness have become a part of their nature. They consider the others, especial the religious and ethnical minorities as their enemies.  
Today Pakistani seminaries, political parties and religious circles are working with the same conception and are responsible for many tragic incidents in our country. 
The terrorist groups have come out from Pakistani seminaries, train by religious and political parties and managed and led by intelligence service of that country.
If we precisely look at social and political situation of Pakistan in the course of its history, there have always been ethnical, religious and racial discriminations, and the leadership especially the intelligence service of that country has been alien to tolerance and accepting other as equal citizens. Contrary to its two neighboring countries, Afghanistan as a multi – ethnical and religious country always observed the rights of all ethnical and religious groups and so far there is no an incident to prove that the country supports the killing of minorities and plotting against them.
But now, IS and Taliban who follow the objectives and programs the aliens and have learnt the lesson of savagery, brutality and violence outside the borders of the country are seeking to transfer the evil ideology of omitting the minorities in Afghanistan, the recent incident in Jalalabad is an example of it.
The enemies of Afghanistan especially those who are seeking to disseminate the evil idea of ethnical and religious supremacy, should know that in spite of that the Afghans are poor and war stricken people but they enjoy of having high knowledge about religious and social affairs, they recognize the source of exporting terrorism and extremism in to their country that the recent attack on minorities is a part of the enemy’s policy and a part of state policy of our neighboring country.
This country has established IS and Taliban and use them to achieve its regional objectives.  Our people know that the crimes that they have committed are against Islam and instructions of Holy Quran and they use religion as means for as mentioned earlier to achieve the regional objectives of their master. Our people know that IS and Taliban have made ridiculous of religious values, they should know that they will be the main loser both in the world and in the Doomsday.
