After Kabul Gurdwara Attack , Talibani Promised To Rebuild Gurudwara

ISIS claimed responsibility for an attack on a Gurdwara in Afghanistan, saying it was retaliation for ‘insults’ to Prophet Muhammed.Protests in several countries were sparked by suspended BJP leader Nupur Sharma’s remarks earlier this month about the Prophet.In a message posted on its Amaq propaganda site, ISIS said Saturday’s attack targeted Hindus and Sikhs and the “apostates” who protected them in “an act of support for the Messenger of Allah”.The group said one of its fighters “penetrated a temple for Hindu and Sikh polytheists in Kabul, after killing its guard, and opened fire on the pagans inside with his machine gun and hand grenades”.Two people were killed and at least seven others injured in the attack.

It was recently reported that a representative of the Taliban’s internal affairs department had met the victims of the Gurudwara Sahib attack and assured the Sikhs of justice.According to Gurudwara President Gurnam Singh, the Taliban immediately paid 1.50 lakh Afghanis for the clean up of the Gurudwara and that a Taliban fighter deployed to protect the Gurudwara had lost his life while fighting the ISIS attackers.

In this way, the Taliban assured the gurdwara administrators that the gurdwara would be rebuilt.
