Islamic State claimed responsibility for Karte Parwan Gurdwara’s attack in Kabul

KABUL: Islamic State, Khorasan Province (ISKP) on Sunday took responsibility for Karte Parvan Gurdwar attack in Kabul.
ISKP issued a statement claiming responsibility for the attack. According to ISKP, Abu Mohammed al-Tajiki carried out the attack, which lasted three hours.
The group claims that in addition to submachine guns and hand grenades, four IEDs and a car bomb were used in the attack.
It is also claimed that about 50 Hindu Sikhs and the Taliban members were killed in the attack and the attack was carried out in retaliation for insulting the Prophet Muhammad by an Indian politician.
However, only two people were killed and seven others were injured in the attack.
Strict action has already been taken against those who have made derogatory remarks. A statement from concerned circles was also issued, emphasizing respect for all religions, condemning insults to any religious figure, or humiliating any religion or sect. Correct interests that oppose India-Kuwait relations are inciting people to use these humiliating comments.
The Bharatiya Janata party stopped its spokesman on Sunday Nupur Sharma from the party’s main membership and expelled its media leader in Delhi, Navin Kumar Jindal, after their alleged inciting remarks against minorities.
At least two civilians, including a Sikh and a Muslim security guard, were killed after an ISKP attack in the Afghan city of Kabul on Saturday.
Initial figures suggest an explosion occurred at the Gurdwara Gate, killing at least two people. Another explosion was heard from inside the complex, and some shops attached to Gurdwara caught fire.
The holy Guru Grant Sahib Fromm Gurudwara in the Afghan capital, Kabul was extracted from the complex, from which streams of smoke were seen rising after the attack early this morning, according to visuals posted on social media.
Visual images posted by locals on social media show a barefoot man wearing Guru Grant Sahib on his head. The visuals show two or three more people, all walking without shoes accompanying him.
According to Sikh religious beliefs, Sarup, a physical copy of Guru Grant Sahib, is considered a living guru. The transportation of Guru Grant Sahib is governed by a strict code of conduct and as a sign of respect Guru Grant Sahib is worn on his head and the man walks barefoot.
The Holy Book was reportedly taken to the residence of Gurnam Singh, president of Gurdwara Map Parwan.
Religious minorities in Afghanistan, including the Sikh community, have been subjected to violence in Afghanistan.
In October last year, 15 to 20 terrorists entered Gurdwara in Kabul’s Kart-e-Parwan district and tied up security.
In March 2020, a deadly attack took place in Sri Guru Har Rai Sahib Gurudwara in the Short Bazaar area of ‚Äč‚ÄčKabul, killing 27 Sikhs and injuring several others. Islamic State terrorists have claimed responsibility for the attack.
