The MoI condemned the attack and called it a ‘terror act’, emphasizing that Afghan forces are committed to ensuring the security of each Afghan citizen.

“Peace will only come when people resolve their differences through words, not guns,” US said.

Meanwhile, India in a statement condemned the “heinous terror attack.”

“Such cowardly attacks on the places of religious worship of the minority community is reflective of the diabolical mindset of the perpetrators and their backers,” the statement said.
