Kabul (BNA) The recent terrorist incidents in Kabul and losing a number of police their lives have made reviewing the security programs in the capital an urgent need.

In Thursday night an attack on a police base in Pul – i- Charkhy area and an attack on police base in Doughabad area Kabul city have caused the concern of people, the attacks seven police were martyred and a number of them injured.
The two incidents indicate that threats are not outside the doors of the capital but threat the people inside the city.
The shaking incidents in Pul- I – Charkhy and Doughabad and other criminal and security events in Kabul are coincident with increasing attacks of Taliban and other armed opposition groups.
These bloody incidents indicate that the capital of the country have caused serious security concerns.
In addition to the painful terrorist incidents in Kabul, big and small criminal acts daily take placed that harassed the citizens of Kabul.
The daily occurrence of such terrorist and criminal incidents indicate that the security and political system is under serious threat, unfortunately the authorities have not assessed the strong and weak points properly and not determined the ways to overcome the problems that have caused the concerns of people.
When the enemy, has the capability create incident in the capital and organize its attacks the depth of disaster would be shaking.
The existence of huge number of unemployed and addicts and other vulgar people in the city have caused terrorist and criminal deeds to be carried out easily. Without doubt the enemy has link with them and until rescuing the capital from the evil of criminals, addicts and people ignore the law it would be difficult to talk about security and city order.
These incidents exactly take place in a time there are certain political programs such as presidential elections and peace negotiations are underway and the people are ready to take effective steps toward new developments in the country.
The reality is this that security and protecting the political system is the main aim of the state and people. Therefore it would be the responsibility of government and security forces to help people in achieving this great aim.
To meet that great aim, it is the time that the security programs for maintaining peace and security in Kabul should be reviewed and give the people new hopes otherwise the people will lost trust even to their security forces.
