PM Modi condemns terrorist attack in Afghanistan

At least 19 people, including Hindus and Sikhs, were killed in a blast in Afghanistan's Jalalabad on Sunday

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday termed the terror strike in Afghanistan as an attack on the nation’s multicultural fabric.

 

“We strongly condemn the terror attacks in Afghanistan yesterday. They are an attack on Afghanistan’s multicultural fabric,” he wrote on Twitter.

He said India stands ready to assist the Afghanistan government “in this sad hour”.

“My thoughts are with the bereaved families. I pray that the injured recover soon. India stands ready to assist the Afghanistan government in this sad hour,” Modi said.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said she would be meeting the relatives of the victims this evening here.

 

In her tweet, Swaraj said, “My heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims of the terror attack in Jalalabad city of Afghanistan. We are with them in this hour of tragedy.”

She said she would be meeting their relatives today at 6 pm in JN Bhavan.

At least 19 people, including Hindus and Sikhs, were killed in a blast in Afghanistan’s Jalalabad on Sunday.

A suicide bomber blew himself up in a city in eastern Afghanistan where President Ashraf Ghani was visiting, at least 19 people, many of them Sikhs and Hindus, officials said on Sunday, in the latest violence to rock the country.

The attacker struck a market located hundreds of metres from the provincial governor’s compound where Ghani was holding meetings, governor spokesman Attaullah Khogyani said.

Among the 19 dead were 12 Sikhs and Hindus, he told said. Another 20 people were wounded. There were scenes of anguish at the hospital where grieving relatives wept and hugged each other as they waited for news of their loved ones.

Provincial health Najibullah Kamawal confirmed 19 people had been killed, the majority of them are Sikhs. Small communities of Sikhs and Hindus reside in what is otherwise an overwhelmingly Muslim nation. It is not clear if they were the intended target of the attack.

The attack came a day after Ghani ordered Afghan security forces to resume offensive operations against the Taliban following the expiration of the government’s 18-day ceasefire.
