Press Release on the terror attack in Wazir Mohammad Akbar Khan of Kabul

Arg, Kabul: Enemies of the Afghan people committed an inhumane and callous crime by targeting a heavily crowded and busy location of Wazir Mohammad Akbar Khan in Kabul, martyring and wounding our fasting compatriots.

Committing war crimes and killing the innocent people in the name of Islam, terrorist groups are fully ignorant of religious teachings.

These criminals always target sacred locations, mosques, religious scholars, children and women.

Our Muslim nation who is observing fast in this holy month of Ramadan can better understand the rationale behind this reprehensible terror attack, thus will never ever allow these criminals to impose their will on our compatriots through coercion, fear and terror.

We are calling on the world particularly the Muslim nations to ramp up pressure on those supporting terrorist outfits so that terrorism should not be used as an instrument against other countries.

President Ghani condemns this terrorist attack in the strongest terms. He said, “Even in this holy month of Ramadan which is a month of worship, virtue and blessings, terrorists have no intention to stop killing the innocent people.”

The President directed all the relevant authorities to attend to the wounded while making the fullest use of all the available resources.

President Ghani offers his deep condolences to the martyrs and wounded of the bereaved families. He prayed of a high rank in paradise to the martyred and speedy recovery to the wounded.
