Shia Rights Watch Condemns Deadly Terrorist Bomb Blast in Herat Afghanistan
On August 12, 2019
Following a deadly terrorist bomb attack in the province of Herat in western Afghanistan, Shia rights watch published a statement to condemn all acts of terror in Afghanistan. Parts of the statement reads as follows:
“Once again, the innocent people of Afghanistan were hit by the ravages of terrorism in this country. It is now for years that the Afghan nation has suffered radicalism and takfiri ideologies such as Al-Qaeda. The recent bombing in Herat province took the lives of scores of women, children and the elderly, only for the crime of professing the school of AhlulBayt and Shia Islam.”
The rest of the statement reads:
“Terrorists affiliated to Daesh detonated bombs rigged to a motorcycle at the Shia neighborhood of Haji Abbas in Herat province. Five people were killed and 30 others were wounded, according to the officials. Shia Rights Watch strongly condemns this terrorist attack, which is part of a chain of attacks against the Shia minority in Afghanistan and Pakistan and calls on the international community to take serious actions in order to protect the lives of Shia in these countries.” At the end of its statement, Shia Rights Watch prayed for the speedy recovery of the wounded during these attacks.
