In a recent symbolic event, members of Afghanistan Parliament announced their support for the Afghan National Security and Defence Forces (ANSDF) by wearing their uniform.
Abdul Rauf Ibrahimi, speaker of the Parliament, praised the action of the House of Representatives and ordered to discuss Representatives’ resolution for approval at their general meeting.
Farkhunda Zahra Naderi, a Member of Parliament who wore the uniform of the Afghan National Civil Order Police, said: “Police and other security forces are fighting to keep peace and democracy in the country. I ask other Afghan women to join the ANSDF because maintaining peace and security is not the duty and responsibility of men only, women should also take part in this regard.”
Sayed Anwar Sadat, another Member of Parliament, said: “I wore ANSDF uniform, and I feel like a soldier. ANSDF are capable of providing security for our people, but we still need the international community to equip our ANSDF. Our people will never forget the bravery and sacrifice of the security forces.”
In a resolution, the MPs expressed their respect for the ANSDF fallen soldiers and their families.
