Gardez mosque bombing perplexes Karzai
AT-KABUL: Ex-president Hamid Karzai denunciated a deadly terrorist attack on Khwaja Hasan mosque in eastern Paktia province in which 25 worshippers were killed and at least 71 others injured.
“Unfortunately, I have been informed that outsiders as part of their machination against the people of Afghanistan have perpetrated yet another inhumane crime and martyred and harmed dozens of our countrymen during Friday’s congregational prayers,” he said.
“It is incumbent on the government to unfetter the country, through a national consensus, from explicit conspiracies of foreigners that is taking toll on people and nudging the country towards annihilation.”
He prayed for the soul of the martyrs, fortitude for the bereaved families, and quick recovery for the injured.
