According to local media, the number of fatalities from the explosion at a mosque in Kabul’s Khair Khana neighbourhood during evening prayers has risen to 21, according to the spokesperson for the city’s security command. Amir Mohammad Kabuli, a prominent Islamic preacher, was one of those killed in the explosion.

According to media reports, Taliban has not made any statements on victims, and no terrorist organisation has as far claimed responsibility for the explosion.

In two devastating explosions that occurred in Kabul two weeks ago, 10 people died and 40 more were wounded. Both assaults have been blamed on the Islamic State.

Following a full year under Taliban administration in Afghanistan, this explosion occurred. According to rights organisations, the Taliban has repeatedly disregarded promises to uphold women’s rights and human rights.

Islamic authorities severely restricted the rights of women and girls after seizing control of Kabul in August of last year. They also repressed the media, arbitrarily arrested, tortured, and summarily murdered critics and perceived enemies, among other violations.

According to the New York-based rights organization’s study, international attempts to solve the country’s terrible humanitarian condition have been jeopardised by Taliban human rights violations, which have drawn worldwide criticism.
