New Delhi, March 26 A day after the attack on a gurudwara in Kabul left at least 25 Sikhs dead, the Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH) on Thursday condemned the attack.

The Jamaat said that the Muslim community of India stands shoulder to shoulder with their Sikh brothers and sisters in their hour of grief and extend condolences to the families of those who died in this attack and prays for the speedy recovery of those who are injured.

JIH President Syed Sadatullah Hussaini said: "We are extremely saddened by the brutal attack on the Sikh community in Kabul, Afghanistan. These types of attacks are an open violation of human rights and international humanitarian law and deserve maximum condemnation by all. Those who are behind this attack must be brought to justice and deserve strict punishment."

"The targeting of religious minorities must end immediately. The Afghan government must ensure the security of the Sikh community that has played a stellar role in the building of Afghanistan," he said.

Praising the Sikh community for its humanitarian work, the JIH said that it is at the forefront of relief and rehabilitation activities all over the world in times of national calamities and injustice perpetrated on innocent people.
