Kabul: Days after a terror attack on Karte Parwan Gurdwara in Kabul, an explosion near the gurudwara triggered panic in the area — predominantly inhabited by people of Sikh and Hindu communities.
Initial reports have suggested that there is no casuality in the explosion that took place at a Sikh hakim’s shop located near the gurudwara.
President of the Indian World Forum Puneet Singh Chandok condemned the attack and sought Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi intervention to ensure security and safety of Sikhs living in Afghanistan.
Earlier on June 18, three explosions ripped through the gurdwara, killing at least two civilians.
Despite claims by the Taliban-led government that it is working to ensure safety of the minorities, non-Muslim residents in the country have remained on the target of militants groups.
