Afghanistan: HinduPACT & SAHAS demand global intervention for protection of Hindus and Sikhs

HinduPACT and the Global Federation of Societies of Afghan-Hindus and Sikhs (SAHAS) together have strongly condemned the terrorist attack targeting Sikh and Hindus in Kart-e-Parwan, Kabul, Afghanistan.  

In a press statement it said:  

The Global Federation of Societies of Afghan-Hindus and Sikhs (SAHAS), strongly condemns the terrorist attack on our main Gurudwara (House of Worship) in Kart-e-Parwan, Kabul, Afghanistan. In the attack, two people were martyred and seven more injured. The house of worship was under crossfire for over 3 hours and the attackers used multiple bombs (including a car bomb) to attack and seriously damage the premises. 

We speak out clearly and forcefully about the continued attacks committed against the Afghan-Hindus and Sikhs, a religious minority of Afghanistan over the last so many centuries. We have faced frequent and sustained terrorist attacks by the Islamic radical factions embedded in Afghan society. In addition to such terrorist attacks, there have been countless incidents of physical and verbal assaults against our community and their properties. Our Temples and Gurudwaras are regularly targeted, vandalized and desecrated with violence, abuse and disrespect. These tactics by the radical Islamic groups are being used in a systematic way to drive the religious minority of Afghan-Hindus and Sikhs out of Afghanistan (slow genocide) and usurp their properties and places of worship. The situation has deteriorated so much that only 100+ people of Afghan-Hindu and Sikh communities are left in Afghanistan; now on the verge of elimination. 

We emphasize, to all the UN members, the need to continue to put increased pressure on the current interim Taliban government to investigate such violent incidents, prosecute perpetrators, and provide greater protections for Afghan-Hindus and Sikhs and their places of worship, schools, and cremation grounds.
