Freedom of expression Afghanistan’s great achievement
 In a recently UNESCO organized meeting in Paris, the situation of worldwide freedom of speech had been discussed, with Afghanistan securing green place.
Media in Afghanistan, during the last several rounds of parliamentary presidential elections and under the democratically elected system could gain a great achievement in term of freedom of expression, as the ministry quoting the United Nations Educational and Scientific Organization (UNESO), said that after assessment into media situation in the globe, Afghanistan deserved to be taken out of red area to green place for being a good environment for media activities. 
According to the UNESCO, the advancement shows hard works and efforts going on for supporting and protecting media by both the public and the government in the conflict-battered country.
“Protection of freedom of speech and journalists as well as eliminating violence against media workers indicate press freedom progress in Afghanistan,” according to deputy minister of information and culture for publication affairs.
Representing Afghanistan in the UNESCO meeting in Paris, the country’s deputy minister of information and culture for publication affairs said that the joint government and media committee has taken serious steps to eliminate violence against journalists.
However, the country is not still completely safe and secure for media workers and journalists, due to growing militants’ threats, but as to the government and ordinary people of Afghanistan, there is a high achievement in the field of media freedom and journalists protection in the country.
Great reforms brought in different fields in government institutions, could be called from the hard works of media outlets. Thousands of cases related to corruption, kidnapping, riggings, land usurpation and other crimes were revealed by media, under which the related organs could step up in bringing reforms or elimination of corrupt sources.
Media in Afghanistan is committed to do more for positive changes and advancement in the country, but as nothing tangible had so far been made by the government and other responsible organs in term of protection of journalists and investigation in the cases of those media workers jailed or violated by some powerful individuals.
The government should pay more attention to violence against women and most importantly implement equal law on both men and women and help the later remain under sure atmosphere to easily work alongside their male colleagues at both office and workplaces outside.
Warlords and illegal armed men who are growingly violating the law on daily basis, should be trailed and brought to justice as they don’t want journalists to research into their trespasses and law-breakings and in many other fields, they threat or even kill media workers in order their violence against the people, misuse of power and other illegalities remain hidden.
Considering these achievements and media’s hard works for the development of the country and the people, journalists including men and women should work unbiased and reveal the truth without discrimination, in order to gain more support from people countrywide and reflect a good image from the war-suffered nation.
