Youth launch pro-police campaign in Kabul
KABUL (Pajhwok): A public campaign “every citizen is a police” to show solidarity with the force was launched on Saturday by dozens of youth in central capital Kabul.
Dressed in a special outfit that represented police, the youth gathered in the fourth police district and then embarked on vehicles traveling to different parts of the city. They held banners and placards in their hands to demonstrate support for police.
Muhibullah, a 12th class graduate, said the purpose of this movement was to spread awareness among people to extend every kind of assistance to the police.
He said they wanted the people to realize they were responsible to be cooperative with police.
Former Wolesi Jirga member Farkhunda Zahra Nadari said it was the duty of police to enforce law. She said police should avoid treating the communities they served on ethnic lines.
She told reporters the law and order was a collective responsibility and everyone should play their role in bringing peace and stability to the country.
Ministry of Interior spokesman Sedique Sediqui said police had every Afghan’s support in every part of the country. He praised the youth for launching the campaign to increase support for police.
