Condemnation of ISIS Khorasan Suicide Bomb Attack on Shia Worshippers in Qundouz Afghanistan
Dated: October 9, 2021
World Ahlul Bayt Islamic League (WABIL) utterly condemns the horrific criminal suicide attack yesterday during Jumah prayers at a Shia mosque in Qundouz, Afghanistan. The Afghan branch of ISIS, Islamic State Khorasan, has claimed responsibility. We offer our sincere condolences to the families of the 100+ martyred victims and the injured.
This despicable inhuman act by cowardly ungodly people, who blow up, maim and kill pious God-fearing people while praying, is a sign of how far removed from Islam the so-called ISIS is. The Afghan Taliban government cannot claim to be ruling the country when they have no control over the terrorists.
WABIL urges the Taliban to take urgent action in bringing the murderers to justice. The Shias are peaceful Afghani citizens who have been oppressed, terrorised and killed for decades. We urge the Taliban government to support the families of the victims and to provide them with security, if it wants to show that it has no connection with the killers and will hold them to account.
