Thousands of beggars rounded up from Kabul so far

The office of the Deputy Prime Minister for Economic Affairs of the Islamic Emirate (IEA) has informed that more than 14,000 beggars have been rounded up only from Kabul city. According to information of the office of the deputy prime minister, 9,154 beggars are women, while 1,228 of the beggars are men. The office said that most of the beggars were the professional beggars, while a small number of them were deemed as needy.
The office of the deputy prime minister said that the beggars would be biometrically registered, adding that child beggars would be provided with education, and beggars who were unable to work would be provided with an allowance.
The move has been welcomed by Kabul residents and considered it as good step and asked the Islamic Emirate to expand the initiative to other big cities of the country.
“I am feeling happy when I see the beggars sitting beside roads and streets are rounded up from the city,” said Nasruddin, a resident of Kabul. He said that it was difficult to compare those deemed to be needy from those who were professional beggars.
Saifuddin, another resident of Kabul, says most of the street beggars are professional robbers as it is seen many times that beggars rob or snatch mobile sets from women on Kabul streets. He welcomed the initiative and asked for continuation of rounding up beggars in other parts of the country.
After rounding up thousands of beggars from Kabul city, it is difficult to find a single beggar on streets and roads in the country. Hope the move is expanded to other cities of the country.
It is worth mentioning that rounding up beggars from Kabul city was started following the order of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan Mullah Hebatullah Akhundzada. In a decree, the IEA supreme leader instructed the deputy prime minister to round up beggars in Kabul city and with the help of various organizations, provide them with shelter and employment opportunities.
