‘ANDSF sacrifices won’t go in vain’

There is nodoubt that our brave Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF), being the real and strong protector of their homeland, have been chasing terrorists across the country and rendering highest number of sacrifices in war on terror. They are fighting terrorism not only for peace and stability in Afghanistan, but on behalf of the whole humanity across the globe. 
As peace efforts intensified by the Afghan government, people and the international community, Taliban insurgents have time and again continued their bloodshed campaignand violence against the Afghan people and security forces across the country.They spared no effort to disturb the Afghan people’s peaceful life and replied the Afghans’ call for peace with violence and continued insurgency.
Such attacks showing that the country’s enemies want to divide Afghanistan and bring disunity among the different segments of the society, but most of their vicious designs have been fortunately foiled by the heroes of security forces who have devoted their lives for defending the independence, national sovereignty, and territorial integrity of their beloved homeland.
The security officials in their press briefing here last week stated that despite of increasing casualties of the Afghan forces, the heroes would never allow terrorists to establish their safe havens and threaten the life of the common masses.
The heroic counter terrorism struggles of security and defense forces and cracking down the insurgents leave no place for any concern. Despite complications of war in Afghanistan and open and secret supports from terrorists in the region, the Afghan security forces have been passing a dangerous year but didn’t let the enemies of the country to achieve their ominous goal in the country.
Meanwhile, at the crucial juncture where Afghanistan is standing today, the Afghan government and the international community must work to strengthen voices that are raised against extremism, terrorism, lack of justice, nepotism, corruption and other such issues. Without public support, it would difficult for the government and the ANDSF to triumph over growing insurgency and other critical issues.
Taliban and other terrorist groupings through direct orders from their masters trying to motivate people towards fight against the Islamic government only to achieve their vicious goals of devastating Afghanistan and provide the ground for their insurgency and illegal activities.
Over the past few years, there have been many public uprisings against Taliban militants in certain provinces of Afghanistan. This establishes the fact that people are tired of being illegally ruled by insurgents who burn schools and cause development and reconstruction works to stop.
Since the public supports existed for ANDSF heroes, it is hoped that the precious lives and blood of our soldiers will not go in vain rather they will ensure peace and stability for the nation, if not now, in the future.
Our selfless soldiers, who sacrifice their lives for protecting their nation and country, are not dead. They are alive in national memory and are considered national heroes since they play heroic role while defending their homeland and countrymen and women.
