Afghanistan: Taliban Desecrate Sikh Temple in Kabul, Arrest Worshipers
The temple sheltered hundreds Hindus and Sikhs refugees.
On Tuesday, the Taliban desecrated Kabul’s main Sikh temple and arrested several worshipers, the Indian newspapers reported. Several armed Taliban fighters forced their way into the shrine, broke open doors and destroyed security cameras.
The temple offered refuge to a couple of hundred Hindus and Sikhs who abandoned their homes since the Taliban took over the country. “Soon after the Taliban marched into Kabul on August 15, hundreds of members of the Sikh and Hindu minorities had taken refuge” in the temple, Indian newspaper the Hindustan Times reported.

The Taliban are preventing Afghanistan’s remaining Hindus and Sikhs from leaving for India. The Hindu-majority country has offered asylum to Afghanistan’s religious monitories, including Sikhs, Hindus, and Christians. “Nearly 240 Afghan Sikhs and Hindus were, however, barred from entering Kabul airport to board the last military evacuation flight from the Afghan capital,” the daily confirmed.
The Indian broadcaster New Delhi Television (NDTV) reported the incident at the Kabul Sikh temple:
A group of unidentified heavily armed Taliban officials on Tuesday entered Gurdwara Karte Parwan in Kabul and vandalized the holy shrine and as per reports took several people under their custody.
“I have received alarming reports from Kabul. A group of unidentified heavily armed Taliban officials have entered Gurdwara Karte Parwan in Kabul,” said Puneet Singh Chandhok, President, Indian World Forum.
“They have taken the community present in the Gurdwara into custody. It is being alleged by the locals on the ground that the officials have broken off the CCTV cameras of the Gurdwara and vandalising the Gurdwara currently,” added Mr Chandhok.
Meanwhile, the local Gurdwara management is rushing to the spot and the number of officials and people present in the vicinity is yet to be confirmed.
Karte Parwan Gurdwara is located in northwestern Kabul, Afghanistan.
Afghanistan’s tiny Sikh community has long been in the cross hairs of the Taliban. In March 2020, a group of Taliban gunmen attacked another Sikh temple in Kabul, killing 25 worshipers.
The attack comes as the Taliban leadership amps up its rhetoric against the Kuffar, or the non-believers. On Tuesday, a senior Taliban leader paid homage at the tomb of a Muslim warlord who invaded India and destroyed one of the holiest Hindu temple in the eleventh century. The Taliban’s Anas Haqqani, who is also the leader of the al Qaeda-linked Haqqani network, praised the warlord “Ghaznavi (May the mercy of Allah be upon him)” who “smashed the idol of Somnath” temple.
Taliban’s recent actions have alarmed New Delhi, which is fearful of Afghanistan turning into a haven for Indian jihadi groups. The Islamic terrorists have killed more than 40,000 Indian soldiers and civilians in recent decades. Many of these Islamic terrorist groups have ties with the Taliban.

How about talking about Mitch’ traitorous move to work with the commies to raise the debt ceiling?
Seems to me that all these guys could really benefit from a haircut, shave, and a long hot bath with plenty of soap.
The 8th Century returns to Afghanistan, back to Jihad
Sihks kicked the Muslims out of India when they came in to force Hindus to convert.
Oh well. Welcome to Soros’ new world order.
And if dont think it is Soros’ new world, you’ve been asleep for 20 years.
It’s Soros v. Red China now. Though in time, China will either wait out his death, or kill him.
I guess everybody better listen to the TALLY-BAN now that they have $85B in US weapons, courtesy of Joe “Stolen Election” Bidet.
We need to send high Republican officials over to AFG to learn how to govern like Democrats. At least slide their Overton windows rightward a few notches, though what they really need are some high-T shots.
Vile and ugly Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Keith Ellison and the rest of their despicable, Muslim supremacist, terrorist-supporting ilk, have no comment on the behavior of their co-adherents of the supremacist, totalitarian, belligerent, intolerant and pathology-laden ideology of “Submission.”
Savages are gonna be savages. Who’s surprised?
Out of those three only Keith Ellison would be recognized as Muslim by actual Muslims and he is better than a vast majority of Democrats so your using them as a case for hating Muslims is just stupid.
Oh look — Danny whitesplains to everybody which Muslims other Muslims think are Muslims.
Let them fight.
