Afghan Teenagers practicing war using plastic weapon

Posted on at

I went to outside of my house to visit my friends saying them congratulations Eid days. unfortunately I saw a lot of teenagers who were holding plastic guns and practicing the war in Kabul streets and they seems very proud while holding weapons and targeting each others.

Afghanistan has a long war experience during decades and a lot of people were killed, injured, disabled and finally went to other countries as refugees just because of civil war.

Since 2004, Afghan People trying to forget such war practices and instead of that, they are now getting familiar day by day with projects' implementations, economy growth, education and good governance.

Plastic weapons which imported by other countries to Afghanistan has a very strong disadvantages for our people, on one hand, Afghans are buying such goods and paying a lot of money and on the other hand teenagers are bothering other residents while practicing war using plastic weapons.

Now it is families' responsibilities to support the Government and strongly prevent their teenagers to not to buy and use such weapons. These weapons are also very dangerous as well. Most of the weapons has hard plastic bullets as well while are shooting by the teenagers and it causes for blindness sometimes.

My neighbor told me that some one shoot to his son and his eye was totally suffered and injured and he is not able to see even.

Through filmannex channel I am advising families to prevent their teenagers to not to buy and practice such weapons and war. If such practices are not controlled, then their teenagers will be encouraged to use true and original weapons for tomorrow and again the country will be diverted in to real war and as it was practiced during past decades which a lot of people last their lives.
