Afghanistan: 80 Hazara Shia Muslims killed in suicide bombing in Kabul

The Muslim News: Afghanistan is in mourning Sunday in the aftermath of killing of 80 Hazara Shia Muslims Saturday. Thousands of mainly young Hazaras were demonstrating peacefully in Kabul. More than 231 people were injured.

Daesh has claimed responsibility for the kiling of innocent Muslims. “Two fighters from Islamic State detonated explosive belts at a gathering of Shi’as in the city of Kabul in Afghanistan,” according to the statement by Daesh’s Amaq news agency.

The Taliban has denied its involvement.

National Directorate for Security said three bombers were involved in the terroist attack..

President Ashraf Ghani vowed to punish those responsible for the terrorist attack.”I will take revenge against the culprits,” he said.

Hazaras were demistrating against Government plans for a major electicity line from Turkmenistan to Kabul, but bypassing Bamiyan, which is a predominantly Hazara province. It is part of the TUTAP project backed by the Asia Development Bank, linking energy-rich states of Central Asia with Afghanistan and Pakistan.

This attack was the deadliest in Kabul since 2011 when twin blasts in Kabul and Mazar-i Sharif killed 60 people, most of them Hazaras who had gathered to commemorate Ashura.

Hazaras suffer discrimination and persecution.
