A number of Kabul residents have urged the Islamic Emirate's Interior Ministry to distribute uniforms to the military personnel as soon as feasible.
They said that despite the Ministry of Interior announcing the distribution of uniforms to the ministry's security forces for many days, it has yet to happen.
"A discipline should be established to determine whether or not this is a security force so that we may share our concerns with it," said Wajidullah, a resident of Kabul.
"When the uniform is considered ready, the only thing left to do is distribute it. They are free to do it whenever they want, as long as the government is willing to do so," said Farhad, a resident of Kabul.
According to residents, the lack of uniforms in the country causes an increase in crime.
"We urge the Islamic Emirate's administration to expedite this procedure as quickly as possible because there must be a difference between the country's military and reckless gunmen." said Abdul Hadi, a resident of Kabul.
However, an Interior Ministry spokesman stated that the uniform distribution process has begun in the capital but did not indicate where or to whom the uniform had been distributed.
"In practice, the distribution process has started. Residents of Kabul will soon see their security troops outfitted in the uniforms that have been announced." said Abdul Nafi Takur, Interior Ministry spokesman.
Meanwhile, some military analysts believe that uniforms for security forces is crucial since it helps to prevent individuals from misusing the uniform.
"Ensuring security and public order in a society has a consequence with uniforms, as we see in Kabul right now with various uniforms, indicating that public order is not providing a secure society," said Matin Mohammad Khel, a military expert.
"Police, who have the responsibility of maintaining security and public order and working day and night for the people's peace of mind, must have a distinct uniform with a regular and definite appearance," said Samar Sadat, a military expert.
Earlier this week, the Interior Ministry said that uniforms will be distributed to 20,000 security personnel beginning in Kabul and Kandahar.
