Afghan parliament members say government lacks effective plan to ensure security in capital Kabul and across the country.

The escalations of violence and recent insurgent attacks against civilians in capital Kabul have followed strong reaction of Afghan parliament members. The MPs questioned the government’s plans against insurgent groups, particularly in Kabul.

“The deadly attacks have been increased even in Kabul, and government lacks plans of preventing the attacks and ensuring security of at least the capital,” said MP Wajhma Safai.

On Thursday, at least five people were killed and a dozen more injured in attack on shi’it Al-Zahra mosque in the city which was claimed by the Islamic State group.

“The enemies should understand that they cannot divide Sunni and Shia by killing each of the sects,” said MP Abdul Rahman Rahmani.

The speaker of the Parliament’s Lower House, however, said that government should to take practical steps for ensuring security of the people.

“Attack on religious places indicates that these groups have no fate in god and Islam, acting against god but we call on government to take practical plans for ensuring security of the people,” Speaker Abdul Raouf Ibrahimi said.

Following the issues, some Afghan analysts believe the government has failed to fight corruption, develop the economy, improve foreign policy and to reform and good governance.
