A bomb exploded near the Karwan Gurdwara in Kabul on Wednesday, a month after the shrine was attacked by members of the Islamic State. “Members of the Sikh and Hindu communities must be safe.
More details are awaited,” he said. Indian World Forum chairman Puneeth Singh Chandhok told NDTV.
Last month, the Islamic State of Khorasan (ISKP) attacked the gurdwara, killing dozens of Sikhs and Taliban members. Afghanistan’s religious minorities, including the seeker community, claim to have secured the country in August 2021 as targets for violence in Afghanistan, but repeated terrorist attacks contradict these claims.
Not only that, but also underlines the international community’s concern about the potential risk of resurgence among extremists.
Observers believe that such an attack could create a new wave of panic in the country, and small groups are quietly supported by the interior. And they think this is the main reason why the United States and the West did not participate in the reconstruction of the war-torn country.
Before the Taliban took power last year, there were only 600 Hindus and Sikhs in Afghanistan. Reportedly, this number has decreased dramatically.
