The difficulties of Sikhs living in war-ravaged Afghanistan are not coming down despite the assurance of security by the Afghanistan government. While the families of March 25’s deadly attack victims are still struggling to get out of the trauma, another shocking incident has once again made them endure the fire of hell.
On July 17, a 13-year-old Sikh girl named Salmeet Kaur got abducted from Gurdwara Baba Sri Chand situated in Shor Bazaar of Kabul. The incident occurred during the late evening hours.
Salmeet Kaur had lost her father Surjan Singh in the deadly attack carried out by the terrorists on Gurdwara Sri Har Rai Sahib Ji on March 25. After losing her father, she was living a misfortuned life with her blind mother and a younger brother at Gurdwara Baba Sri Chand.
