Kabul (BNA) If Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) are trained professionally and our country holds a strong aerial and ground armed forces and if these forces are equipped with modern weapons, helicopters, jets and modern information technology defense system then the enemies of the freedom, sovereignty, territorial integrity and national unity of Afghanistan would fear to face Afghan security forces and remember the defeat of great emperors as well.
The enemies wouldn’t fire rockets, carry out suicide and terrorist attacks or perform any anti-Islamic, inhuman and anti development assaults which results in killing and wounding of innocent civilians and set families on mourns of their dears and relatives.
The equipping of ANSF and intelligence departments with contemporary weapons and training them with the strong sense of patriotism would enable them to counter, defeat and foil the plots and conspiracies of the enemies of the Afghan nation across the country particularly in border areas where insurgents are actively operating.
Recently we witnessed the NDS operatives successfully neutralized and captured insurgents and terrorist planning to target high ranking government officials and conducting suicide attack.
Such operations clearly indicate that Afghan national security forces are stronger, equipped and well-trained than before and are capable of maintaining security in their respective regions.
To thwart the Afghanistan’s peace and freedom enemies’ schemes and prevent them from implementing their merciless acts towards the development and renovation process of the country, the equipping of ANSF is pivotal for a prosperous and developed Afghanistan.
The wake Afghan national security forces has always tirelessly endeavored to frustrate the designs of rebels and groups related to them and would always defeat them which our great motherland history better reflect the issue.
Whenever Afghan nation has come under foreign intervention how our brave and patriotic forces have responsibly organized reacted.
Maintaining security across the country isn’t just ANSF duty but it is obligation of each of Afghan to perform his/her national responsibility through assisting these forces with information them on the suspicious activities carried out by insurgents and armed gunmen in different parts of the country.
The Afghan nation supports the government programs and also has full confidence and trust on its troops and believes on a prosperous, stable and developed Afghanistan in the future.

Kabul (BNA) The recent suicide attacks which caused huge casualties among innocent civilians, ask the religious scholars and all Afghan pious people to openly protest against these barbaric and satanic actions.
BNA commentator writes in this regard: 
Hamid Karzai the president of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, recently met with the members of religious scholars council of Afghanistan. During the meeting, the members of the council, severely condemned a suicide attack on a funeral ceremony in Dur Baba district, Kandahar province which led to the killing a number of our Muslim and devout compatriots and called it contrary to all Islamic principles and teachings.
The participants of the meeting also expressed their concern about the continuation of external interferences in the country. Although, the Afghan people appreciate and welcome the stand of religious scholars   council of Afghanistan, but expect the council to louder their voice against these heinous and inhumane actions and let not the armed oppositions to commit such evil acts in disguise of religion, because such actions defame Islam which leads the people toward peace and peaceful co-existence.
Islam is a religion which preached peace, brotherhood, compassion and mercy in its early days and called its follower to do their best for construction of the society and tranquility of people. The great prophet of Islam (PBUH) in the most difficult time invited the oppositions and infidels to Islam and monotheism via reasoning and presenting them the God’s orders and ordered his followers to be kind and merciful and avoid violence.
Unfortunately, today the armed oppositions in the name of Islam carry out such actions which are against Islamic teachings and Islam as a whole; while Islam considers intentionally killing a great sin and prohibited it.
What happened in Dur Baba district and earlier deadly attack on Hussaini Mourners in Kabul and attack on a burial ceremony in Takhar province--- indicate that the armed oppositions have started fighting against religion and the tradition of the prophet, if it is not so, how do the leadership of armed oppositions and religious scholars on the other side of Durand Line justify these crimes.
Is killing Muslims in a burial ceremony of another Muslim according to Sharia law? Is slaughtering a 12 year old boy according to Islamic law?
Regretfully, the armed oppositions are more violent in their dealing with people in recent days, but the important point is that there is silent against such heinous actions which caused great concerned. 
In this situation it requires the religious scholars, elders and dignitaries play their role and let not the armed oppositions to use Islam as a means for achieving their evil goals. It is the duty of grand religious scholars to make louder their voice and not allow to the actions which Islam considers illegal and animosity against itself, to be justified as Islam.
Because of this, Hamid Karzai the president of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in his meeting with the members of the scholars’ council asked them to raise their voice against the suicide attacks by insurgents on civilians and security forces.
The president has said, “If the actions of who are carrying the suicide attacks are illegal and animosity against Islam, it is the duty and obligation of our religious scholars to talk and preach openly against those actions in mosques and to severely condemn them”.  President Karzai emphasized, “Being silent before such action is a fault and silence is our great enemy”.
The Afghan people hope not only Afghan religious scholars, but scholars across Islamic world  come together in huge gathering and assess  such heinous and inhumane actions, which are carried in the name of Islam and to clear their stand against such criminals.
