Reacted furiously over the deadly attack on Shaheen corps in Mazar-e-Sharif, the parliamentarians ask that when the security institutions are unable to ensure their own security, they would never ensure security of others.
The parliamentarians stress, the current conflict strategy is not responding to encounter the growing threats against Afghanistan.
Fatima Aziz, a parliamentarian said, “There are unlimited internal rivalries amongst statesmen which have affected security situation. We need to re-draw a strategy to respond threats we face,”
Sharif Balkhabi, another member of parliament complained, “Everyone is shocked over the deadly attack on Shaheen corps. Everyone asks how the raiders entered to the highly-secured military compound and killed too many officers.”
The parliamentarians demands religious scholars to denounce the attack with strongest possible terms.
Nahid Farid, a member of parliament representing Herat residents warned, “The soldiers have been attacked while they were praying. We ask why our religious scholars are silent against the attack. If they aren’t raising their voice against such a brutal incident, then we would abandon them.”
The legislators call the global alliance against the terrorism fragile in Afghanistan, which requires Afghan government to convince the world for a frank counter terrorism effort.
