Shia Rights Watch Condemns the Genocide Against Shia Muslims in Afghanistan

Following a deadly bomb blast at a Shia Mosque in Kunduz city of Afghanistan, during which more than 100 worshippers were martyred, Shia Rights Watch published a statement that reads as follows:

In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

 “We belong to Allah and to Him do we indeed return” [2:155]

God Almighty has stated in the holy Quran:

“Whoever kills a soul, without [its being guilty of] manslaughter or corruption on the earth, is as though he had killed all mankind” [Chapter 5: Verse 32].

Shia Rights Watch vehemently condemns the deadly bombing of Kunduz Mosque in Afghanistan on October 8, 2021, during which 115 worshippers were martyred and 230 others were seriously injured. Shia Rights Watch believes this terrorist attack was a targeted attack against the Shia community living in this city. This human rights organization also warned of the fate of millions of Shia Muslims in Afghanistan, after Taliban takeover of the country. Therefore, Shia Rights Watch demands all human rights and legal foundations to condemn the war crimes and attacks against the Shia community in Afghanistan. Furthermore, Shia Rights Watch calls on the international community to counter terrorism and their supporters on the global level. In the end, Shia Rights Watch offers its deepest sympathies to the bereaved families of the martyrs, and prays for a speedy recovery of those who were injured in this terrorist attack.
