Kabul (BNA) Martyring Muslims in any time or season and pretext is hostility with God and the murderer will face the horrible torture of Almighty God.
BNA religious affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes recently merciless terrorist groups in hostility with God, Islam and humanity targeting the spectators and athletes in a stadium in Jalalabad city martyred 10 and injured more than 40 people.
Targeting civilians in Ramadan can be nothing but open animosity with humanity and Islam.
The attack took place exactly in a time, using Islamic values as a means go to the fighting against our Muslim people and instead praying in this holy month torture and murder mercilessly. This clearly indicate that they are not only capable of defining Islamic values but have no a primitive knowledge about Islam, otherwise, how one can justify attack on athletes and turning a stadium in to a slaughter house?  Ramadan is a month of avoiding all hostilities, terror and savagery. The Afghan people have started the fasting month, with praying for well-being and good health of Islamic nation especially Afghan people, but contrary to this, Taliban in the first days of this sacred month accelerating their attacks and military operations gave the message that have no care to divine’s commands and continue massacre.
Taliban are victimizing Muslims for their ideological and political programs which have not define in any religious and human history books or documents.
In fact, what Taliban doing is against Islam and contrary to our national identity.
What is important is the meaningful silence against the cruelty and oppressions of Taliban.
It would be better the pulpits of the mosques, the platforms of conference rooms and media as a whole be used as a strong voice of people against Taliban and IS cruelty and severely condemn so called Khurason caliphate.
