Sep 21, 2015 - 20:40

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Wolesi Jirgainfo-icon members from southern Ghazni province on Monday voiced concern about the kidnapping of two womeninfo-icon in the province, urging the president to personally take notice of the incident.

Ghazni officials say four civilians including two women, a child and a driver were abducted in Rasana locality of Gilan district by unknown gunmen some three months back.

Nafisa Azimi, an MP from Ghazni, said: “Security officials are incompetent. It has been more than three months the two Afghan women who are also the president’s honor remain in captivity of the enemies.”

Addressing the president, she said: “Either save the honor of Afghan people or tender your resignation.” She said if the kidnapping saga did not come to an end, the gap between the people and the government would widen.

Mohammad Arif Rahmani, another MP, said: “Three months on, our sister and mother are with the enemies and we can do nothing. These two women are Afghans and their defence is our duty. Come together and save your mother and sister each 60 and 65 years old.”

Haji Zahir Qadir, the first deputy speaker, urged security officials to take immediate action for securing their release. He said the government was responsible to reunite the women with their families.
