Comment by the Information and Press Department on the terrorist attack at a Sikh temple in Kabul
On March 25 in Kabul, terrorists attacked a Sikh temple during a service. More than 20 people were killed and several people were injured. The ISIS terrorist organisation claimed responsibility for the attack.
We condemn this barbaric crime aimed at inciting religious strife in Afghanistan. The incident once again demonstrates the need for more effective measures to combat the threat posed by ISIS in Afghanistan and for measures to prevent the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan from being turned into a foothold for the spread of terrorism in the region. Once again, we are urging Afghan officials to take exhaustive action to ensure the security of their citizens and intensify the fight to destroy the ISIS bases in the country.
