Kabul (BNA) June 14 is the mother day, the mother who lays the base of the family and exercises of having high spiritual value.
BNA social affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes June 14 as a mother day is a good opportunity for valuing the services of a creature full of patience, compassionate and kindness.
Determining a day in a year to honor the mother does not reflect correctly the rights and services of this heavenly creature deserves.
Although a day in a year has named after mother for honoring the status of mother but cannot explain truly the devotions and the services the mothers carry out for training and bring up their sons and children.
In Afghan community, the mothers are facing numerous problems not justifiable among them is continuing war that daily takes the lives of dozens of the citizens and makes   a number of mothers mournful and deadly sad.
There is no bitter incident than this that the Afghan mothers daily receives the coffins of their children who lose their lives in defense of homeland or martyred in terrorist attacks in the city or in the offices. 
The reality is this that the mothers, sisters and couples in Afghanistan are carrying the heavy weight of problems and are the main victim of fighting and other problems of Afghan community and just naming a day after mother cannot reduce the pains and agonies the mothers daily sustained.
Official sources say that presently there are about two million women and girls without Gardiners and six thousands widows in Afghanistan.  Have we really helped these people in the framework of Mather Day as they deserved? 
In addition of war, terror and explosions which have made the mothers in Afghanistan mournful, they are also suffering from other social problems such as violence, poverty and social injustice. The mothers and women in the country are the most oppressed strata in our community that is not just.
There are many mothers and women in Afghan community, suffering from social and family problems and the main victims of social injustice.
We should seek proper ways according to Afghan traditions and Islamic law for pleasing the mothers, because just saying them congratulation for the occasion of mother day is not enough. The day cannot reduce the persistent pains and agonies that are insecurity, daily slaughtering children, poverty and social and economic problems. We can overcome the above problems only when we remove the mother day from its symbolic way and change it in to a means for knowing the realities of women’s life in the country.
