Kabul (BNA) 21st century is the era of modern technology, innovations and development.
Today the world countries enjoy warm and fine competition in various fields but unfortunately the war-devastated Afghanistan due to foreign imposed war has been deprived of participation in this race and still suffers from the menace of terrorism and extremis.
Afghan people unison and strong spirit of brotherhood as the only option prevents the country from further destruction and troubles. The renovation and rehabilitation of the war-torn Afghanistan requires joint
strives of the Afghan society.
Educated men and women constitute vital segment of the country as Afghan courageous females through the history have performed their national obligation before their people sincerely and efficiently and by adopting serious concrete measures with strong coordination and proficiency and working shoulder to shoulder with their Afghan brothers played their significant role in rescuing the country from crisis.
Respect to Afghan women dignity is a must although we witness cases of violence against women in various part of the country particularly in rural areas where the level of awareness among women are low and they lack information about their fundamental rights and in some cases are deprived of seeking knowledge but for a prosperous, stable and developed Afghanistan violence against women and committing any sort of physical and moral misconduct in any form and manifestation should be stopped.
The women should be given those rights mentioned on the constitution of the country. The constitution of Afghanistan 2nd chapter of fundamental rights and duties of citizens and 22nd articles says "Any kind of discrimination and distinction between citizens of Afghanistan shall be forbidden. The citizens of Afghanistan, man and woman, have equal rights and duties before the law" Also based on the principles of the holy religion of Islam men and women maintain equal rights.
Respect to women rights as a common fact should be practiced because any kind of discrimination and distinction before them is against the holy religion of Islam, the constitution of Afghanistan, Human rights and the Afghan rich culture. The Afghan constitution has specified social, political and civil rights to the women, now it depends on this segment of society to productivity utilize the privileges given to them in countering the social and political issues.
Having a glance to the past decade achievements of the Afghan women we observe improvements gained by them in various spheres. Today many Afghan girls commute to schools and have find their ways to semi and higher education institution and many of them attend Masters and PhD degrees abroad. So the Afghan government and the international community future support pave the way for progresses of this segment as this vulnerable part of the Afghan society suffered more in three decades of conflict.
