Kabul attack: India to grant e-visas to over 100 Sikhs, Hindus

The
government
took
the
decision
in

matter
last
night.
On
the
other
hand,
Islamic
State
Khorasan
Province
(ISKP)
on
Sunday
claimed

responsibility
for
the
Karte
Parwan
Gurdwara
attack
in
Kabul.

ISKP
released
a
statement
claiming
responsibility
for
the
attack.
According
to
ISKP,
‘Abu
Mohammed
al
Tajiki’ carried
out
the
attack
which
lasted
for
three
hours.
The
group
claimed
that
besides
submachine
guns
and
hand
grenades,
four
IEDs
and
a
car
bomb
were
also
used
in
the
attack.
It
further
claimed
that
about
50
Hindu
Sikhs
and
Taliban
members
were
killed
in
the
attack
and
the
attack
was
conducted
as
revenge
for
the
insult
of
Prophet
Mohammed
by
an
Indian
politician.

Prime
Minister
Narendra
Modi
condemned
the
cowardly
terrorist
attack
against

Karte
Parwan
Gurudwara
in

Afghanistan.
He
also
prayed

“Shocked

cowardly
terrorist
attack
against

Gurudwara
in

However,
in
