Kabul (BNA) Afghanistan is in a sensitive and critical political and military situation, to overcome this horrible situation, national and coordinated cooperation and effort severely required.
BNA social and political affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes recently number political and military critics of state holding a session in Kandahar city expressing their views on present situation of the country and the deeds of the leadership of Unity Government even accused some of the authorities of the government of wrong doings.
There is no doubt that Islamic Republic of Afghanistan as a patron of the constitution of the country supports freedom of speech, holding gatherings ,demonstrations and criticism in the frame work of constitution and not only patiently heard the views of its critics but also provided the ground for such programs .
However, what is important is this that the critics of the state should act according to a constructive strategy and program. Their reforming ideas and useful advices will be of most importance for the leadership of the state, but baseless accusations, vilification and scandals will not have any use but baffles public opinions and further worsens the situation.
It would be better the politicians and critics of the state to act as an assistant of the state for settling the problem not a means of pressure.
Studying the situation it becomes clear that Afghanistan to overcome the current problems besides regional gatherings severely needs holding a national conference or session.
Some of the criticisms addressing the state are correct and need to be discussed in a national gathering and find the ways of solution of the problems.
Holding the traditional assemblies in the frame work of constitution is a matter of discussions among the people in these days but holding such assembles should not be used for achieving the goals and interests of certain groups or parties.
It would be better for the critics of state who use the possibilities and facilities provided by the state to support and assist the state in fulfillment of national programs and holding a just and transparent parliamentary election in the country.  Constructive and useful opinions and criticism are audible but sabotage and breach the law would not be tolerated anymore.
