Afghanistan envoy to India condemns attack on Sikh gurdwara in Kabul

Afghanistan’s Ambassador to India, Farid Mamundzay, on Monday condemned the attack carried out by Islamic State terrorists on a gurdwara (Sikh temple) in Afghanistan capital city Kabul.

“This attack was not just on a Sikh Gurdwara but the entire civilized population of Afghanistan. Sadly, this isn’t the first incident in the last few months. We condemn this violent and heinous attack,”  Mamundzay was quoted as saying by ANI.

He also asserted that Sikhs have been living in the country for centuries and it is their country and said that preparations are being made by the Indian government to bring those who are willing to come to India.

“Sikhs have been living in Afghanistan for centuries. It’s their country. We are in touch with several leaders & preparations are being made by the Indian government to bring those who are willing to come here,” said Mamundzay.

An Afghan Sikh devotee and security personnel of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan were killed when terrorists suspected to belong to the Islamic State Khorasan faction attacked the Gurdwara Karte Parwan in Kabul in a bomb and gun attack early on Saturday morning.

The Taliban security forces quelled the attack, but the gurdwara premises were severely damaged and burnt in the siege.
