The Recruit of Militia Forces in Afghanistan

The Afghan Government has announced that it will recruit tribal militias to boost security in their areas. This decision has not been welcomed by most Afghans. On one hand the government carried out the disarmament program to disarm the militias, but on the other hand the government arms irresponsible people. We know that without security and peace it is impossible to make progress. In every country the security forces are organized under the formation of ministry of defense, ministry of interior, and intelligence forces and our government also has these three organizations and we don't need militia forces to ensure security for us.

However the government of Afghanistan has emphasised many times to disarm the irresponsible militia and therefore the government has launched DDR programs and under these programs thousands of militia forces have been disarmed. But now we see its going in the opposite direction and the government is going to arm the militias in the southern and southeastern provinces like Helmand, Farah, Konar and Paktia provinces, which can be dangerous in the future, it's hard to guarantee. These militia forces might interfere with the police and use their power in wrong ways. We have already experienced this during the civil war, so in my opinion the government should stop this process as soon as possible and if the government continues this process it will show the weakness of our government and foreign forces to provide security for the Afghan people.

We have the forces of more than 30 foreign countries here, plus our national army and police. So with the presence of these forces we dont need militia forces to boost security for us. We know that in some tribal areas we have only 40 police for a population of 200,000, which is not enough force to provide security. We need more forces to ensure security for the tribal people, but not by the tribal militias. We want our government forces to do this job, therefore we hope our government accelerates the conscription process around the country and recruits Afghans to join the national army and police. At the moment this process is going very slowly and in the past 4 years we haven't completed the 75,000 Afghan army forces.

So in my opinion the Afghan government should use all its effort to improve security and increase the number of police forces and army forces because security is the most important thing in a human's life. So we hope the world community will help our government in order to improve its security forces and recruit enough forces to eradicate the terrorists from our country.
