Heratis uneasy with big crowds welcoming guests at airport

HERAT CITY (Pajhwok): Some residents of western Herat province on Monday expressed deep concern over the presence of massive crowds at the provincial airport to welcome and receive travelers, calling it ‘an unpleasant culture.’

Although people have been welcoming their relatives at the provincial airport and at transport stations for the past few years, but now it has turned into a tradition and has created huge tension and problems for people, the residents claim.

The residents say, “It is good to welcome and receive guests from airports but they should not bother other people.”

Ghulam Habib Haidari, a resident of Herat City, the provincial capital, told Pajhwok Afghan News the large number of people at the airport to receive guests and relatives caused traffic jams in the city

He said, “Unfortunately the issue has turned into a tradition. When a person or a government official arrives at the airport, from 80 to 100 people come for their welcoming at the airport which causes traffic jams.”

Shaoib Yarzadah, another resident, told Pajhwok: “I was coming from Kabulinfo-icon to Herat and the same day a government official was also arriving to the province. About 40 vehicles had come to the airport to welcome the official.”

A number of other residents held similar views and urged people to avoid creating problems for others.
