Mazar-e-Sharif residents expressed concerns about Islamic Emirate’s security forces members not wearing uniforms, saying that civilians have a problem distinguishing security forces from criminal imposters.
They asked the Islamic Emirate to distribute uniforms for security forces immediately in the province.
“Security forces must have a uniform so we can distinguish them from others,” said Mer Abas, a Mazar-e-Sharif resident.
“Distinctive uniforms are needed to distinguish thieves from other people,” said Mohammad Tayeb, a Mazar-e-Sharif resident.
Meanwhile, security officials in Balkh said that they will distribute uniforms to their security forces soon.
“In one week we will distribute uniforms for our security forces ... Insha Allah,” said Mohammad Asif Waziri, spokesman for the Balkh police commander.
Residents said that recently crime has increased in the city of Mazar-e-Sharif.
