For Which Sin Were They Killed?

On Friday 6th of December 2015 a rocket struck a mosque in Sayed Abad district
of Wardak province, Afghanistan which killed and injured 18 people included
children. Many of the injured are also in critical condition.
The painful question is this that by whom this mosque was targeted? By
American aerial bombing? By Nato's indiscriminate attack? By other foreign
occupiers? Those who are always preaching us about human rights?
Or those who claim to be one of us and commit crimes against their people even
more than the foreigners?
All these slogans emphasizing nationalities such as the national army,
national police, local police – we don't understand what they mean with these
‘national' institutions, if they are implying that they serve their nationals
then they are clearly out to dupe us since they kill their nationals more than
they serve them.
Our poor people don't have any safety even in the house of God from foreigners
or those who wear military uniforms in the name of this nation? This mosque
was not some stronghold of national terror opponents that these mercenary
forces so cruelly attacked it.
What was the crime of these worshippers that they faced such a miserable fate?
If civilians are perceived as opponents of the Kabul regime and they don't
have any safety of life and property anywhere then whom are the people that
support the Kabul regime?
What was these poor victims crime? Were they killed for going to the mosque?
Was their crime sitting in a mosque and remembering their Lord? Was it that
they were praying and reciting the Quran? Or something else?
Has anyone asked why the blood of these innocent people was shed? Where is the
media which always accuses the insurgents of committing war crimes? Why do
they turn a blind eye to this atrocity? After all, was not their countrymen
that were killed in this crime? If such a crime had been committed by anyone
other than the government they would surely have created a storm with their
When something of similar nature happens in France or America, the entire
world rushes in to pay their respects to the fallen. Where are our respects
Alas we must accept that our poor nation is the hated child of this
international community, none care for our fallen, for our grief, and none
care to stop those committing such atrocities on our people.
Such atrocities occur in our land daily yet unfortunately no one cares enough
to investigate them, to compensate the victims, to console them, or to carry
out an investigation to prevent its recurrence.
It is as a result of such atrocities that our people have turned their backs
to their supposed protectors. Surely that day will arrive when all our
countrymen will join the forces of resistance creating a storm that will
cleanse our country.
