India has offered support to evacuate the Parwan Sikhs as they are a vulnerable community in Afghanistan
New Delhi, Jun 18: Terrorists of the Islamic State carried out an attack inside the Gurdwara Karte Parwan in the Afghan capital of Kabul. The terrorists entered the Gurdwara at 8.30 am today after shooting dead the security guard.
Around 30 Afghan Hindus and Sikhs were inside the Gurdwara at the time of the incident. Many managed to flee the Gurdwara when the attack began. The attack comes days after the Islamic Statea released a video threatening to repeat the 2020 Gurdwara attack.
The Karte Parwan Sikhs are a vulnerable community in Afghanistan and India has offered its support to evacuate them from the Taliban ruled country. The Islamic State has been targeting the minorities for long ever since it set up shop in Afghanistan. They have killed many members of the minority communities including Tajiks, Hazaras, Sikhs and Uzbeks.
