Suicide Bombers attack Sikh Gurudwara in Kabul; 11 killed

Afghanistan is one of the most dangerous country in the world to live. Since the American invaded Afghanistan, nothing went right. There were attacks and blind killing of civilians. Since that there was not a single day when there were no death reported in Afghanistan. Bomb blast, shelling of jets, drone attack was a part of life for the civilians.

A Sikh gurudwara was attacked in Afghanistan’s capital city Kabul by gunmen and suicide bombers. At least 11 people, including a child, have been killed in the attack. Eleven more have been injured. Security forces have already locked the area and are in a battle with the militants. Massive deaths reported in the last few decades.

Taliban’s commanders says:“As long as US army is here, there will be no peace, no talk.” The US army is still present in Afghanistan and we can see attacks are in place.

Unidentified suicide bombers attacked a Sikh Gurudwara in Shorbazar area of Afghanistan’s capital Kabul, on Wednesday, killing many people, a minority Sikh parliamentarian said. The gunmen and suicide bombers intruded into the Gurudwara at 7:45 am in the morning at Dharamshala, a Sikh area of worship. According to the Interior Ministry, defence forces had blocked off the entire area and are trying to counter the attack.

Afghan forces have cleared the first floor of the Gurudwara in PD1 of Kabul, suicide bombers are battling security forces, said Tariq Arian, a spokesman for Ministry of Interior.”Several people have been rescued who were trapped inside the building,” he said.

The parliamentarian, Narender Singh Khalsa, said he was near the Gurudwara when the attack happened and ran to the site. He said at least four people were killed.

Antalkali Kaur Honaryar said, a Sikh MP in the Afghan parliament, “There are about 150 people inside the temple. Families are living there and they usually gather to offer prayers in the mornings. Some people inside the temple are hiding and their phones are off. I am very concerned.”

No one has taken responsibility for the attack, but earlier this month an Islamic State affiliate attacked a gathering of minority Shia Muslims in Kabul, the capital, killing 32 people.

Taliban claimed that,“There are many CIA agents and American soldiers in Afghanistan which are present in a local getup and their only aims in to destroy and harm our public. They dress up like this to look like an Afghani but in  real they attack civilians, destroy their properties, rape children and loot them. They do all this to show the world that we are doing terrorism but the facts are different.”

Afghanistan is very much affected with terrorism. Due to its geographical location, American was there for more than 18 years but they were failed to conquer that region and suffered severe casualties and damage to weapons. There was a time when three US helicopters was destroyed with the rocket launchers. US is now failed and finding no way out, asked Pakistan for help. Now the treaty is signed and people are hoping for good things.
