The constitution and other relevant laws have given this right for every Afghan as civilian of the country to express their criticism and it is upon the government to know about its shortcomings with tolerance. “For prevention of more law breaking in future, the violators of constitution must be recognized and punished. Otherwise, in this case to disregard about the laws will be like a public culture among people and no one will take care of it” said Khevatgar addressing to 34 article of the Afghan constitution enacted about freedom of speech.
