Kabul (BNA) Ministry of Health started POLIO cross country vaccination.  
Public health ministry has started implementing    a five day POLIE vaccination program in time where 16 cases of POLIO have been recorded in Afghanistan during the current year.
BNA reporter reporting this really threatening issue writes ministry of health has a POLIO vaccination program that would be continued for days.
Orzgan, Helmand, Kandahar and Kunar are the provinces where the POLIO cases have been registered.
The locations where POLIO cases have been registered are   mostly under armed oppositions’ control. Armed oppositions religiously consider vaccination illegal and prevent implementing it.
Taliban have political view regarding to POLIO just calling it illegal prevent POLIO vaccination in certain parts of the country where are under their control.
While religious scholars and credible Islamic sources insist that there is no any problem for implementing polio vaccine.  But contrary to them, they ask the people to vaccine their children for their safety and good health. Since Islam insists on good health so supports polio vaccination program.
In the meantime the health minister has asked the families to cooperate the vaccination teams of that ministry in implementing on their children in order to prevent the proliferation of this deadly disease. 
He also asked the families to vaccination centers to be vaccinated against polio.
Taliban should consider polio vaccine necessary for every child of our country and take part at this national program and spare no any effort and cooperation for implementing it successfully.
On the other hand it requires asks the religious scholars go the pulpit of mosques and raise their voices in support polio vaccination and support its implementation to be successful across the country, by explaining the privilege of vaccination according to Islamic sharia.
It should be mention that polio virus only exists in two countries Afghanistan and Pakistan. Although, Nigeria is been called the host of polio virus but no cases of the disease  has not been seen during the last three years, but till now, World Health Organization has not announce it a country lack of polio.
Implementing polio program is an emergency World Health Organization which does all efforts for elimination polio in Afghanistan and Pakistan to end this calamity across the globe, but Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan still creating   barrier against polio programs provide the ground for reemergence of the deadly virus of polio to other areas of the world already cleaned from the virus.
