Kabul: Dozens of worshippers, including women and children, were killed in a Gurdwara in the heart of the Afghan capital by gunmen belonging to an Islamic State terrorist group on Wednesday morning (25 March 2020).
ISIS has claimed responsibility for the Kabul Gurudwara attack.
The ISIS terrorists held over 200 persons hostage inside the Gurudwara and were engaged in a fierce gun battle with the Special Afghan forces and international troops.
According to eyewitness account, three armed terrorists entered the Gurudwara when it was full of worshippers. First they lobbed grenades and then began shooting indiscriminately.
The ISIS terrorists killed hapless unarmed men, women and children who were at the Gurudwara for offering prayers. They even took aim and shot dead women and small children as they scurried for cover.
The attack on the Gurudwara and mindless killing of innocent worshippers has sent shock waves across the world and the barbaric violence has been condemned internationally.
The attack on the Kabul Gurudwara and the minority Sikh community raises a huge question mark on the recently inked treaty between the US and Taliban to pave the way for the exit of the US troops from Afghanistan.
The civilised world wants to know the Taliban stand on this violent incident and is awaiting their reaction towards ISIS and it’s strategy to combat terror and such orgy of violence in the name of religion.
