Statement on Kabul Attacks

The Office of Imam Shaikh M. Tawhidi condemns the twin suicide attacks which killed dozens of people during a peaceful demonstration by a minority group in Kabul, Afghanistan. We join our Afghani brothers and sisters today in condemning these dastardly acts of terrorism that were carried out by ISIS, and share the grief and sorrow of the nation. Our hearts go out to the friends and families of those who are victims of this despicable tragedy.

Before the deadly explosion, thousands of minority Shiite Hazaras were demonstrating in Kabul on Saturday July 23 demanding that a key power transmission line pass through their electricity-starved province. At this moment of confusion, uncertainty and naturally highly charged emotions, we pray to God to give strength to all of those who have suffered during this catastrophe.

Imam Tawhidi has announced a donation of $50,000 USD towards the orphaned children of Kabul as a result of these attacks.
