Terrorist attack on Kabul gurdwara, security personnel killed; Only 140 Sikhs are left in Afghanistan

Islamic State (IS) terrorists opened fire inside a gurdwara in the Afghan capital, killing a security guard. Two people have been taken to the hospital. Apart from this, 7 to 8 people are still trapped. The firing took place at Kart-e-Parwan Gurdwara in Kabul. Security forces have cordoned off the area and the encounter with the trapped terrorists is on.

The warning of such an attack was given after the suspended BJP leader’s remarks against Prophet Mohammad. The media wing of the Islamic State Khorasan province, affiliated with the terrorist organization Islamic State, issued a video threat. It said the 2020 gurdwara attack would be repeated. The video also criticized the Taliban for interviewing Defense Minister Mullah Yakub with an Indian news television channel and Finance Minister Amir Muttaki’s meeting with the Indian in-charge in Afghanistan.

27 Sikhs killed in Gurdwara attack in 2020

The Sikh community has become vulnerable to attacks by terrorist organizations since the Taliban took control of Kabul in August 2021. India had offered support for the evacuation of the Kart-e-Parwan Sikhs and is currently monitoring the situation closely. In March 2020, 27 Sikhs were killed and several were injured in a deadly attack by Islamic State terrorists at the Sri Guru Har Rai Sahib Gurdwara in the Short Bazar area of ​​Kabul.
