Sikhs and Hindus in Afghanistan take refuge at the Karte Parwan Gurdwara in Kabul

After the Taliban takeover of Kabul, the Sikh and Hindu communities in Afghanistan have taken refuge at the Karte Parwan Gurdwara in Kabul. According to Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri, there are about 320 plus Hindus and Sikhs in Afghanistan and the government is working on modalities to ensure their safe exit.

 

"I am in constant touch with President, Gurdwara Committee of Kabul and the Sangat who have told me that 320+ people of minorities (including 50 Hindus and 270+ Sikhs) have taken refuge in Karte Parwan Gurdwara in Kabul in wake of recent developments. Taliban Leaders have met them and assured them of their safety. We are hopeful that Hindus and Sikhs would be able to live a safe/secure life despite political & military changes happening in Afghanistan," Puri said on Monday.

 

Punjab chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Monday had requested external affairs minister S Jaishankar to arrange for the immediate evacuation of all Indians, including around 200 Sikhs, stranded in the gurdwara in Afghanistan.

 

“Afghanistan’s fall to #Taliban will strengthen the Sino-Pak nexus against India (China has already sought the militia’s help on Uyghur). The signs are not at all good, we need to be extra vigilant now at all our borders,” Capt Amarinder had tweeted on Sunday.
