Nov 14, 2012
A number of political forces have recently propounded the discussion of establishing the military groups and stated about planning an independent martial programs. The discussion of organizing the martial programs is stated while the people and the government of Afghanistan vowed for strengthening the national government and national convergence.
Planning such illegal programs has been discussed, while the general perception and attention of the world and supporters of Afghanistan has been focused on strengthening an active government that has professional structures and mechanisms.
The Civil Society & Human Rights Network of Afghanistan has strongly condemned designing such programs which are against the national interest, national unity, and rule of law and the process of convergence for peace in the country.
The Civil Society & Human Rights Network of Afghanistan welcomes such efficient and active state-building process that has police, intelligence, and united, trained and professional army, and expresses its deepest abhorrence of establishing any kind of military and martial unit beside the armed military forces of the country.
The people of Afghanistan, who had experienced the civil wars in the country have been plagued and harassed by the contumaciousness of the military groups, and in no ways will bear nepotism, establishment of illegal armed groups and ancestry, and call for convergence and national unity in the country.
Establishing illegal armed groups is against the constitution of Afghanistan and the other laws related to the military forces of the country, and it limits the role of the government in the society and broadened human rights violation.
The Civil Society & Human Rights Network of Afghanistan asks the president his Excellency, Hamid Karzai, to assure the people of Afghanistan from the prevention of such negative structures and approaches via a clear message.
The Civil Society & Human Rights Network of Afghanistan, seriously request Islamic republic of Afghanistan to reports its undertakings in this regard. The Civil Society & Human Rights Network of Afghanistan expects the national assembly of the country to monitor the rule of law and observing of the constitution in the structures of the government, and interrogate the outlaws of the norms, national laws and the international commitments of Afghanistan.
Expecting the rule of law in Afghanistan!
