Terrorist attacks are increasing as the US Army is seizing its baggage from Afghanistan. On Saturday, the death toll in the bomb blast outside the Syed-ul-Shuhada High School in the capital Kabul has risen to 53. The children were returning from school when the attack occurred. According to the Ministry of Home Affairs, the dead are mostly girls aged between 11 and 15 years.
Ministry spokesman Tariq Ariyan said that the number of injured is more than 100. Both boys and girls study in this school, but all have different timings. This school works in three shifts. The students study in the second shift, the attack occurred at the same time as the students were returning home after the holiday.
The cease fire between the US-Taliban after the attack is also in question. On the other hand, the Islamic State is engaged in strengthening the network in the country. In such a situation, the concerns raised about the safety of Afghan women, who are dreaming of going ahead, are proving right.
What was their fault?
Women in Afghanistan have only one concern – what will happen to them after the US military leaves. According to the UN mission in Afghanistan, in 2020, about 400 women who dreamed of going ahead were killed by the terrorists. These include journalists, striving for higher education, and social workers. The Taliban have also maintained a hitlist to assassinate women who have gone ahead since 2001.
There is no day since a month when there is no blast
In Afghanistan, 428 security personnel and civilians have been killed in Taliban attacks in the last one month. At the same time, more than 500 people have been injured. There have been explosions in 190 places. Most of the attacks have taken place in Uruzgan, Jabul, Kandahar, Nanagarhar, Badakhshan and Takhar regions. Nasir Kamwal, a member of the Kunar Provincial Council, says that there is no day in Kunar to see when there is a blast somewhere.
Shia dominated areas have been attacked
The attack took place in a Shia-dominated area. However, the Taliban has not claimed responsibility but has not condemned the incident. By the way, this area is notorious for attacks on Shia Muslims. Organizations associated with the Islamic State often take responsibility for the attacks here. The hardline Sunni Muslim group has declared war on Shia Muslims in Afghanistan.
