Prophet Insult Behind ISIS Attack On Kabul Gurdwara That Killed 2 - Sakshi Post

ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack on a Gurdwara in Afghanistan, where two people were killed, stating that it was in retaliation for insulting Prophet Muhammed. 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".

As per reports on the NDTV website, 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.

Protests in several countries were sparked after former BJP leader Nupur Sharma's remarks on the Prophet earlier this month. Several blasts were reported near the gurudwara, in the latest targeted attack on a place of worship of a minority community in the Taliban-ruled Afghanistan.

The Afghan interior ministry, in a statement, said two persons were injured after unidentified attackers attempted to enter the area, according to Tolo news.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday condemned the "barbaric'' terrorist attack on the Karte Parwan Gurudwara in Kabul. Modi tweeted, "Shocked by the cowardly terrorist attack against the Karte Parwan Gurudwara in Kabul. I condemn this barbaric attack, and pray for the safety and well-being of the devotees."
