Militants’ continued attack in Kabul

It is the last week of the holy month of Ramadan. According to the teachings of Islam and what Allah the Almighty has asked His faithful men, the holy month of Ramadan is a month of blessings, forgiveness, kindness, brotherhood and love of humanity. But unfortunately, Afghanistan is gripped with devastating violence and terror by the forces of darkness during the holy month.
Taliban and the so-called IS militants sparing no efforts to shed the bloods of our innocent people during the holy month. According to security officials, there have been three explosions in the capital, Kabul, including a sticky bomb attached to a bus carrying university students that martyred at least one person here yesterday morning.
Ferdus Faramarz, spokesman for the Kabul police chief, has confirmed that two other blasts also hit PD5 in the capital city, injuring dozens of our innocent civilians. Meanwhile, according to spokesman for the public health ministry, at least four women were among the wounded from the bus attack and have been taken to hospitals for further treatments.
No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attacks in Kabul, but both Taliban and Islamic State militants are behind such incidents and have staged attacks in city that resulted to martyring and injuring our civilians.
There has been regular news of violence during this Ramadan. Allah says this is a month of love and peace; the militants made it a month of violence and bloodshed for innocent Afghan civilians as they are responsible for over 90 percent of casualties. There have been suicide bombings and attacks. The forces of darkness come to the height of cowardice by killing defenseless civilians.
Ordinary Afghans, who are faithful Muslims, have kept silent on such atrocity at the hands of Taliban. If there was an incident with such grave violation of our religious values outside the country in any western state, our people would have started countrywide protests and demonstrations. But they keep mum in most of the incidents. They are required to raise their voices via mosques and condemn such attacks by the terrorist outfits.
Taliban have brought sorrow and grief to many families this Ramadan and hundreds of people will not celebrate the Eid, since they have lost their beloved ones across the country.
Besides the violence, there is other double-standard show of extreme hypocrisy in our society. Allah says Ramadan is a month of blessings and kindness, when His men help those in need. But it is practiced the opposite in Afghanistan.
With arrival of Ramadan and Eid days, prices of all commodities and food items go skyrocketing. In the western world, what many of our people call infidel and non-believers, there have special arrangements during events of religious festivities and celebrations. Traders do not make an artificial dumping of goods to make the prices double, as common in our part of the world. 
Continued terror attacks by Taliban and other terror groups in the most sacred month in Islam, have once again established the fact that Islam and human life have no value to these barbarians. The Afghan people, government and its international partners need much to do to eradicate terrorism.
