A Taliban official, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed the blast and said casualties were expected to rise. The Taliban official did not give further details of the incident. At the same time, no terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the blast in the mosque. According to the news agency Reuters, the mosque where the blast took place had Sunni Muslims in it.
attacks on mosques continuously
Attacks on mosques have intensified since the Taliban takeover in Afghanistan. Several Shia mosques have been attacked in the past. The Islamic State had claimed responsibility for the bombings inside a mosque in Kunduz city of Afghanistan in early October. 80 people were killed and hundreds were injured in this attack. A large number of Shia Muslims living in the area had come to the mosque to offer prayers when the blast took place. Significantly, after the withdrawal of the Taliban, the situation in Afghanistan has worsened. Recently, Filippo Grandi, the High Commissioner of the United Nations Refugee Agency in Pakistan, said that the humanitarian situation in Afghanistan is very bad and the international community should come forward for immediate help.
