The Afghan government has decided to launch a crackdown on the culture of violence in the country by banning guns. Not the real lethal firearms but toy guns that children play with. The move on Tuesday comes after more than 100 children suffered eye injuries in the capital Kabul from toy weapons during the three days of Eid al-Fitr celebrations, which marked the end of the holy month of Ramadan. The spike in injuries was partially caused by the Afghan tradition of giving pocket money to children for Eid, which resulted in an influx of fake but dangerous firearms in kids’ possession. "Interior Minister Noor-ul Haq Uloomi has ordered police forces to confiscate all toy guns... [these] can lead to physical and psychological damage among people," the Afghan health ministry said in a statement cited by AFP. The ban follows an earlier increase on import tax for toy guns from 10 percent to 50 percent to discourage it. The move could lead to an emergence of adults' black markets and smuggling networks for children’s toys, the Interior Ministry has warned, and the sellers won’t be paying any taxes at all. The situation will then mirror the lucrative regional black market for real firearms. The move was hailed in Afghan social media by those who believe that toy guns insight violence.
