Attack on Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Kabul has no rational, religious justification: Tavakoli

Attack on Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Kabul has no rational, religious justification: Tavakoli

On the 40th day of the terrorist attack on Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Dasht-e Barchi, Kabul, and the martyrdom of tens of innocent fasting student girls, a commemoration ceremony, organized by the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, was held on Thursday, June 17, 202. The ceremony was a part of a series of AhlulBayt’s virtual meetings on the subject of “Why the Shiites are oppressed in Afghanistan; Strategies to strengthen the Shiite community.”


In the meeting, referring to the terrorist attack on Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Dasht-e Barchi, Kabul, Tavakoli, the principal of the high school said, “Terrorist attack on Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Kabul has no rational, religious justification in any religion. In this terrorist attack, about 85 fasting people were martyred in the holy month. They were the pioneers of science and knowledge and were promising a better tomorrow for Afghanistan. With white scarves, they were a symbol of peace and purity. But they rushed to their god to complain about the situation of the most oppressed people in this land.”


“The martyrs of the Kabul terrorist attack were those who, according to the religious teachings and orders of the Prophet (p.b.u.h), educating them is a religious duty. They had no sin but obedience to the command of the Prophet (p.b.u.h). The Kabul terrorist attack was the saddest of its kind, and the least recurring in the history of ongoing violence in Afghanistan. The attack shocked the world, and confused today’s sleeping people across the globe from the cruelty of the terrorists,” she continued.


“To heal the grief of the families of the martyrs of the Kabul terrorist attack, help was provided by compatriots from different parts of Afghanistan and the world, the offices of Grand Sources of Emulation, institutions, and charities, and the friendly and neighboring country, the Islamic Republic of Iran, and the treatment of the injured began. Everyone, in turn, addressed some of the problems, trying to take the burden off a loved one, and alleviate the grief of another loved one,” added the principal of the Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Dasht-e Barchi, Kabul.


“The management of Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Dasht-e Barchi, Kabul strongly condemns the terrorist attack on this school, and wishes that practical measures be taken against such targeted attacks as soon as possible,” Tavakoli pointed out.


It should be mentioned that on the evening of Saturday, May 8, 2021, 85 people were martyred and more than 150 were injured in three consecutive explosions in front of Sayed al-Shuhada High School in the west of Kabul (Dasht-e Barchi). The bombings took place in the 13th security district west of Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan. As the school closed and students left, a Toyota Corolla car bomb exploded at the entrance to a clinic connected to the school. Then, as the students were fleeing, two landmines exploded in their path.

Perpetrators of Kabul terrorist attack must be identified: Alemi Balkhi

Perpetrators of Kabul terrorist attack must be identified: Alemi Balkhi

On the 40th day of the terrorist attack on Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Dasht-e Barchi, Kabul, and the martyrdom of tens of innocent fasting student girls, a commemoration ceremony, organized by the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, was held on Thursday, June 17, 202. The ceremony was a part of a series of AhlulBayt’s virtual meetings on the subject of “Why the Shiites are oppressed in Afghanistan; Strategies to strengthen the Shiite community.”


At the meeting, referring to the martyrs of the Kabul terrorist incident, Seyyed Hossein Alemi Balkhi, former Minister of Refugees of Afghanistan and a member of the General Assembly of the Ahl al-Bayt (a.s.) World Assembly said, “The martyrs of this terrorist attack are different from the martyrs of other attacks. Because they were from a religious community that lived in the same area. In this attack, a certain religious group was attacked. As the second fact about the Kabul terrorist attack, its target was children under the age of 18, between the ages of 7 and 16. The attack killed 90 students, and injured more than 250.”


“In the terrorist attack in Kabul, some people went missing, and their fate is not known whether they were martyred or fell into the hands of those who sought to exploit the attack. Another characteristic of this incident was that no group specifically claimed responsibility for it. The government claimed that the perpetrator of this terrorist attack was the Taliban. But the Taliban accused the Afghan government of carrying out the attack. The government argued that because the Taliban had no achievement on the battlefield, it attacked children to spread fear to attain more achievements in the negotiations. On the other hand, the Taliban argued that the Afghan government carries out such attacks because it is incapable of fighting on the battlefield and had nothing to say in the peace talks. Some also said that ISIL carried out the terrorist attack to take revenge on the Shiites,” he continued.


“ISIL has carried out similar attacks before the recent terrorist operation. Recently, a senior Afghan government official pursuing security issues said that ISIL is targeting Shiites everywhere. It does not matter to them whether these Shiites are women, children, or men, it attacks them everywhere. One week before the terrorist attack on the Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School, a senior Afghan official said that ISIL had said in a message that the group would attack the country’s Shiites if the group’s prisoners were not released by the government,” said the former Minister of Refugees of Afghanistan.


“The perpetrators of this terrorist attack think that the Shiites of Afghanistan are helpless people, and there are benefits of terrorist attacks against them. At a recent press conference, the Council of Shiite Ulama of Afghanistan made some demands. According to the council, the terrorist attacks in the Shiite areas are genocide against the Shiites, and it is the duty of the Afghan government to ensure the security of the Shiites. The Council of Shiite Ulama of Afghanistan believes that the Afghan government has not met expectations,” stated Alami Balkhi, recognizing the Kabul terrorist attack as a shameful act.


“The Afghan Shiite Ulema Council has three specific demands on the Afghan government. Ensuring the security of the citizens of the country is one of the government’s duties, and in this regard, the Afghan government has not done its job well. It needs to provide more security. Previously, a security plan was submitted to the government by the Security Coordination Commission. This plan must be implemented, and if the government does not consider this plan appropriate, it should present an alternative plan. If the government does not act in this regard, measures must be devised to solve the problems through the local defense,” he continued.


“We need the clarification on the terrorist attack in Kabul. It is the duty of the government to determine who is the perpetrator of the attack, and if the perpetrators are in areas controlled by the Afghan government, they should be punished, and if they are not in these areas, they should be identified so that this crime can be pursued in the international community, and declared as genocide. These are expectations of the people of Afghanistan from the government. Also, the situation of the missing people in the terrorist attack in Kabul should be determined,” added the member of the General Assembly of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.


It should be mentioned that on the evening of Saturday, May 8, 2021, 85 people were martyred and more than 150 were injured in three consecutive explosions in front of Sayed al-Shuhada High School in the west of Kabul (Dasht-e Barchi). The bombings took place in the 13th security district west of Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan. As the school closed and students left, a Toyota Corolla car bomb exploded at the entrance to a clinic connected to the school. Then, as the students were fleeing, two landmines exploded in their path.

Successive attacks on Afghan Shiites not accidental: Salehi Modarres

Successive attacks on Afghan Shiites not accidental: Salehi Modarres

On the 40th day of the terrorist attack on Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Dasht-e Barchi, Kabul, and the martyrdom of tens of innocent fasting student girls, a commemoration ceremony, organized by the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, was held on Thursday, June 17, 202. The ceremony was a part of a series of AhlulBayt’s virtual meetings on the subject of “Why the Shiites are oppressed in Afghanistan; Strategies to strengthen the Shiite community.”


Referring to the martyrs of the Kabul terrorist incident, Ayatollah Mohammad Hashim Salehi Modarres, Chairman of the Council of Shiite Ulama of Afghanistan, said at the ceremony, “In this terrorist attack, 84 innocent girls were martyred, and about 200 people were injured. This terrorist incident was very suffering and severe. While meeting with the families of the martyrs and the wounded, representatives of the Council of Shiite Ulama observed that some of these families were so poor that they did not even have a home to live in, and lived in a room without a door. They often lived at the foot of the “Chehel Dokhtaran” (Forty Girls) mountain and were deprived of the basic facilities of life. The family of one of the martyrs said that their daughter’s body was identified through carpet weaving effects on her hands. Another family said their daughter had performed Ghosl (of Shahada) at dawn on the day of the terrorist attack, saying, “Today is the last day of my life”.”


“The martyrs of the Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Kabul were the followers of the school of Ashura and Imam Hussein (a.s.). These oppressed children were torn to pieces. Throughout history, such a crime is either rare or unparalleled. The successive attacks on Afghan Shiites are not accidental, and our enemy, who is the enemy of Islam and humanity, targeted our people with prior preparation. Our people have a brilliant history, and according to Grand Ayatollah Hakim, “I have seen less like the people of Afghanistan, a religious people who love Source of Emulation and Ulama.” The people of Afghanistan have a brilliant record of adhering to Islam, participating in jihad, learning science, and promoting culture,” he continued.


“Our people are peace-loving people and have lived as brothers with all the other brothers in Afghanistan. The first motive for attacks on schools, mosques, hospitals, and universities in Afghanistan is to create religious divisions. But our people are smarter than to fall into this trap. Throughout history, the Shiite people of Afghanistan have not fought with their Sunni brothers. The people of other countries should learn from Afghanistan’s people that we did not have a Shiite-Sunni war in the country. The enemies of Islam stir up discord in Afghan society in order to prevent the growth of talents and scientific prosperity,” he added.


“One of the reasons for the crimes against the country’s Shiites is the weakness of the security organizations. They do not arrest the perpetrators of these crimes, and they do not bring them to justice. This causes the criminals to commit crimes again. The lack of a unified leadership for the Shiites of Afghanistan is one of the reasons for the crimes against them. Officials must prioritize the interests of society over individual and ethnic interests. As long as the Shiites of Afghanistan don’t unite and every one pursues only the interests of his party, this tragedy will not be removed from our people,” said Ayatollah Mohammad Hashem Salehi Modarres, referring to the weakness of Afghanistan’s security organizations.


“The political ingenuity and cohesion of the leaders in the Shiite community of Afghanistan are very important, and if this cohesion is achieved, the crimes against our nation will end. Economic affairs, drugs, and addiction are other important issues,” he continued.


“Our leaders must take the right actions and make a joint decision. They should all be one voice and one word and have only one wish and one action. The nation also must follow them. The Shiite people of Afghanistan are very displaced, but they love peace,” noted the Chairman of the Council of Shiite Ulama of Afghanistan.


It should be mentioned that on the evening of Saturday, May 8, 2021, 85 people were martyred and more than 150 were injured in three consecutive explosions in front of Sayed al-Shuhada High School in the west of Kabul (Dasht-e Barchi).

On the 40th day of the terrorist attack on Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Dasht-e Barchi, Kabul, and the martyrdom of tens of innocent fasting student girls, a commemoration ceremony, organized by the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, was held on Thursday, June 17, 202. The ceremony was a part of a series of AhlulBayt’s virtual meetings on the subject of “Why the Shiites are oppressed in Afghanistan; Strategies to strengthen the Shiite community.”


At the ceremony, referring to the painful tragedy of the martyrdom of Shiite schoolgirls in Afghanistan, Ayatollah Reza Ramazani, Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly said, “The terrorist explosion at Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Dasht-e Barchi, Kabul, which killed 85 people and injured 150 others, was one of the most tragic terrorist incidents in the contemporary era. Most of the martyrs were 13- to 16-year-old girls. Some of the martyrs of the incident were torn to pieces. So that their identification was possible only by their stationery. On the other hand, the families of these martyrs were below the poverty line.”


“Regarding the crime of martyring female students in Kabul, one should read this verse: “بِأَيِّ ذَنْبٍ قُتِلَتْ” (For what sin she was slain) (Quran, 81: 9). Although condemnation messages were issued from all over the world after this incident, and the seminaries of Qom and Najaf, the Grand Source of Emulations, Sunni scholars, pope, and various organizations condemned it, this incident is one of the most painful and horrible incidents in Afghanistan since the beginning of the American military presence in the country, even in the contemporary era,” he continued.


Following in the webinar, Ayatollah Mohammad Hashem Salehi Modarres, Chairman of the Council of Shiite Ulama of Afghanistan, said, “The martyrs of the Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Kabul were the followers of the school of Ashura and Imam Hussein (a.s.).

Referring to the role of ISIL in the terrorist attack in Kabul, Sayed Hussein Alemi Balkhi, former Minister of Refugees of Afghanistan, and a member of the General Assembly of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly said, “ISIL has carried out similar attacks before the recent terrorist operation. Recently, a senior Afghan government official pursuing security issues said that ISIL is targeting Shiites everywhere. It does not matter to them whether these Shiites are women, children, or men, it attacks them everywhere. One week before the terrorist attack on the Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School, a senior Afghan official said that ISIL had said in a message that the group would attack the country’s Shiites if the group’s prisoners were not released by the government.”


At the end of the ceremony, Ms. Tavakoli, the director of Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Dasht-e Barchi, Kabul, said, “The martyrs of the Kabul terrorist incident were those who, according to the religious teachings and orders of the Prophet (p.b.u.h), educating them is a religious duty. They did not commit any sin except obedience to the command of the Prophet.

Terrorist attack on Sayed Al-Shuhada High School, Kabul, one of most catastrophic terrorist incidents of contemporary era: Ayatollah Ramazani

On the 40th day of the terrorist attack on Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Dasht-e Barchi, Kabul, and the martyrdom of tens of innocent fasting student girls, a commemoration ceremony, organized by the AhlulBayt (a.s.)

Although condemnation messages were issued from all over the world after this incident, and the seminaries of Qom and Najaf, the Grand Source of Emulations, Sunni scholars, pope, and various organizations condemned it, this incident is one of the most painful and horrible incidents in Afghanistan since the beginning of the American military presence in the country, even in the contemporary era,” he continued.


“For the past 20 years, the United States, before that the former Soviet Union have been present in Afghanistan under the pretext of providing security. However, we have witnessed unrest in this country for the last two decades. Even these unrests still exist today and have not diminished,” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.


“After this terrorist incident, different ethnic groups and parties in Afghanistan expressed their sympathy with the Shiite community of the country. Afghan Shiite clerics also unanimously condemned the Kabul terrorist attack and called on the international community to follow up on the incident internationally. They also called on the Afghan government to try to prevent a recurrence of such incidents, to introduce the criminal face of ISIL among the people, and to strengthen the national spirit in Afghanistan. These points should be followed up,” said Ayatollah Ramazani, Referring to the reaction of different segments of Afghanistan to the terrorist incident in Kabul.


“I must say that, first of all, in the Quranic culture, killing an oppressed person is equal to killing all human beings. God says in the Quran: “مَنْ قَتَلَ نَفْسًا بِغَيْرِ نَفْسٍ أَوْ فَسَادٍ فِي الْأَرْضِ فَكَأَنَّمَا قَتَلَ النَّاسَ جَمِيعًا” (whoever slays a soul, unless it be for manslaughter or for mischief in the land, it is as though he slew all men) (Quran, Sura Al-Ma'idah verse 32). This Quranic view must be taken into account. According to Islam and other Abrahamic religions, man has dignity, man is the center of creation on earth, and God has created all blessings for man. For the evolution and progress of man, God has entrusted a great trust to man, and man has been able to carry this great trust: “حَمَلَهَا الْإِنْسَانُ ۖ إِنَّهُ كَانَ ظَلُومًا جَهُولًا” (but man undertook it. Indeed, he is most unjust and ignorant) (Quran, Sura Al-Ahzaabverse 72). But throughout history we have seen extremist views about the status of man,” he continued.


“In recent times, and the past few decades, we have seen that takfiri thought has had many victims of people in the world, most of whom, of course, have been in Islamic countries, including Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iran. Also, due to these terrorist acts, we have had many victims in Iran. The martyrs Rajai, Bahonar, the martyrs of Hafte Tir bombing, the nuclear martyrs, and many other martyrs were the martyrs of terror. Unfortunately, some terrorists still believe in killing innocent people. Among the victims of their actions are defenseless women and children,” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.


“In this terrorist incident, which we participated in the 40th day ceremony of it, 85 girls between the ages of 13 and 16 were martyred, and 150 were injured. The terrorist incident in Kabul is a very big crime, and in response to this incident, we have to say to the Western world and international organizations: For what sin were they killed? Unfortunately, the Western world reacted very little to this incident. Sometimes, in response to the smallest thing that happens to a person in the West, all the Western media, through propaganda, deafen the ears of all the people of the world. On the contrary, sometimes big and heartbreaking events take place in the world, during which innocent people are killed, but these media do not show any reaction, and this is a very bitter issue. While these kinds of crimes must be seriously pursued by international institutions, we see some international organizations are just expressing concern! By expressing concern no problem will be solved, and unless these crimes are prosecuted, and the perpetrators are brought to justice, the concern of the international community alone cannot heal the heart wound of families who have lost loved ones,” said Ayatollah Ramazani, referring to the martyrs of the Kabul terrorist incident.


“Despite their poverty, the victims of the Kabul terrorist incident walked with great difficulty every day to get to school and pursue their education. But on the other hand, we face extremist views that forbid education for girls and women. While according to the Quran and hadiths, education is necessary for every human being, and it is obligatory for a Muslim, both men, and women. Extremist views have dealt many blows to human beings, and because of these wrong views, they have taken many people away from us. Unfortunately, this view is attributed to religion. At one time in Iraq, terrorists beheaded innocent people while reciting “Allahu Akbar” and “La ilaha illallah”! Where in the logic of Islam are there such crimes? The first verses revealed to the Prophet (p.b.u.h) were about science, knowledge, and knowledge: “اقْرَأْ وَرَبُّكَ الْأَكْرَمُ* الَّذِي عَلَّمَ بِالْقَلَمِ*عَلَّمَ الْإِنْسَانَ مَا لَمْ يَعْلَمْ*” (Read, and your Lord is the most generous, * who taught by the pen, *taught man what he did not know*) (Quran, Sura Al-Qalam, verses: 3, 4 & 5). Islam invites people to learn knowledge and says that everyone should either be students and seek knowledge, or lovers of knowledge. Islam thus emphasizes the learning of knowledge. On the other hand, Islam complains of ignorance and considers ignorance as to the basis of any evil and danger to human beings. Terrorist movements are born of ignorance,” he continued.


“Throughout history, there has been an extremist view among Muslims. Of course, this view has been among other religions as well. Because of such views, some attribute violence to Islam. While Islam has come for the mercy of human beings. God says in the Quran: “وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ إِلَّا رَحْمَةً لِلْعَالَمِينَ” (We did not send you but as a mercy to all the nations.) (Quran, Sura Al-Anbiya, verse 107). They attribute violence to Islam. While the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) said, “I have been sent for mercy.” In recent centuries, due to their inability to analyze the events of the beginning of Islam, some opponents of Islam attributed the violence to Islam, and because of the occurrence of 80 wars during the time of the Prophet, they described him as the warrior. However, if we look at the wars of his time, it turns out that in these wars, the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) and the Muslims defended, and defense is based on nature and reason. By studying all these wars, this result is obtained. During his 13-year presence in Mecca and at the beginning of his prophetic period, the Prophet (p.b.u.h) witnessed only hardship, suffering, and torture, and Muslims endured these cases too; some of them were exiled, and others migrated to Abyssinia. After emigrating to Medina, from the second year of emigration, the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) witnessed the imposed wars. He defended against the attacks of the Mushrekin (Polytheists),” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.


“After the Khawarij, other people followed this extremist thinking in various ways. A century ago, the horrific incident of the demolition of al-Baqi (1806) was an example of the harsh view of ISIL and Takfiris. Owners of this view consider killing obligatory and educate their children with the words murder, violence, and terror. While according to the Islamic view, children should be brought up with kindness, love, and compassion for God and man,” stated Ayatollah Ramazani, referring to the extremist thought of the Khawarij.


“In human society, some people create fear about Islam and write articles about it, and introduce the Prophet (p.b.u.h) as a power seeker and warrior. While the whole existence of the Prophet (p.b.u.h) was mercy and kindness. The polytheists harassed the Prophet (p.b.u.h) and poured dirt on him, but he prayed for them. Even he would visit the polytheists on the day when they did not pour dirt on him. Some people said to the Prophet (p.b.u.h) “Curse them (the polytheists),” but he replied, “O God! Guide my people, for they do not know”,” he continued.


“They committed atrocities and crimes against humanity and committed oppression. What sin have 13- and 15-year-old girls committed? They were studying to eliminate ignorance. Eliminating ignorance can lead to the growth of society, and make it a progressive society,” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.


“The dangerous enemy created Wahhabism in order to hide the mercy of Islam. Because if the man becomes acquainted with the merciful thinking of Islam, he will incline to it. Quranic chapters begin with “بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ” (In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful), a sentence that refers to the Mercy and Compassion attributes of God. Words of kindness, humanity, and value, such as Rahman and Raouf, have been mentioned many times in the Quran,” clarified Ayatollah Ramazani, pointing out that the dangerous view of ISIL is made by the enemies of Islam.


“In dealing with non-Muslims, we must treat them well, because God says in the Qur'an: “قُولُوا لِلنَّاسِ حُسْنًا” (speak kindly to mankind) (Quran, Sura al-Baqarah, verse: 83). The Prophet (p.b.u.h) said that even if a non-Muslim asks a Muslim for help and he does not respond and does not support him, he is not a Muslim. But we see that an extremist thought destroys a society that must seek science, knowledge, rationality, spirituality, and relationship with God, and emphasize the development of its relationship and be on the path to a peaceful life,” he continued.


“The spirit of resistance of the Afghan people, especially the youth of this country, has always been well-known. They must resist misconceptions, and follow the path of correct knowledge about Islam, a rational Islam that is based on justice and resists dictators by reason and nature. Those who seek to attack and encroach on the honor of a country and its intellectual and geographical borders must be resisted,” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.


“These pure teenagers were killed without any guilt, and killing any of them means killing all of humanity. May God punishes the perpetrators of these violent actions so that these heartbreaking and painful scenes will not happen again in human society,” he mentioned.


It should be mentioned that on the evening of Saturday, May 8, 2021, 85 people were martyred and more than 150 were injured in three consecutive explosions in front of Sayed al-Shuhada High School in the west of Kabul (Dasht-e Barchi). The bombings took place in the 13th security district west of Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan. As the school closed and students left, a Toyota Corolla car bomb exploded at the entrance to a clinic connected to the school. Then, as the students were fleeing, two landmines exploded in their path.
