There is no order in the Afghan government!
Afghanistan has become the world’s biggest producer of opium and heroin.
There are approximately 250 million people dependent on drugs in the world, including women and young people, of which more than 2 million are in Afghanistan. Afghanistan’s neighbours are also critical of this development, as they also suffer the consequences. Both members of the Afghan government and the terrorists benefit from the drugs trade.
Violations of women’s rights and use of violence against women in Afghanistan have increased. There are many qualified women in Afghanistan, who could be appointed to the administration. Generally women are refused the right to professional activity in administrative bodies as these positions are often bought using financial payment.
Criminal gangs run child trafficking. Underage children are being smuggled and then sold on to other criminals. The children named are then used for suicide attacks or used as drugs mules, and also sexually abused.
Violent criminals extort money payments from Afghan traders. In other cases, their children are abducted, so the criminals can implement their demands.
Criminality rates have gone up. The Afghan government has failed in its attempts to deal with the social ills above.
President Ashraf Ghani’s government, including the cabinet, are involved in nepotism and corruption. Corruption is also widespread within the Afghan army. Mineral oil (fuel) destined for the army is often sold elsewhere, and money intended for provisions for soldiers flows into private hands. The extent of the corruption in all other bodies of the Ashraf Ghani government, as mentioned in previous submissions, has also increased. Even the Afghanistan anti-corruption authority itself is suspected of corruption.
Ex-President Mr Hamid Karzai and the members of his government at the time, who also had to respond to corruption scandals from their time in government, talk about convening the “Loya Jurga”, a major assembly, in order to regain power in Afghanistan in this way. Widespread electoral fraud in Afghanistanis a tradition dating back to the time of the Karzai government.
The Afghan government has not yet managed to introduce the new personal identification cards. There is argument about the entry of tribal origin information. The personal identification cards should meet international standards, including information about name, date of birth and nationality. Additional information beyond this could cause problems and conflict.
The Taliban are responsible for the death of many civilians. Even women and children have been killed in their attacks on mosques.
Terrorists should never believe they are winning the war in Afghanistan.
We ask the government of President Ashraf Ghani to resign as soon as possible, as the position in Afghanistan has become worse year by year under his governance.
