Candlelight vigil held for Nangarhar blast victims
KANDAHAR CITY (Pajhwok): Dozens of social society activists, cultural activists and journalists held a candlelight vigil on Monday night in southern Kandahar to remember Nangarhar blast victims.
Jalal-u-Rehman Sharar, a civil society activist, told Pajhwok Afghan News that Nangrahar incident was a dastardly and inhumane act. He said that Afghans were being killed for years on one or another pretext.
“Hunting animals in jungle is illegal by international law but unfortunately there is no law for killing Afghans. Any precedent of brutal killings of Afghans can’t be found in history”, he lamented.
He urged Afghans to get united against common enemy and counter such dreaded acts of killing Afghans anymore.
Dawa Khan Minapal, director information and culture in Kandahar, called Nangrahar tragedy a greatest shock for entire Afghans. “The main aim of the event is to give message that all people living in the region are alike and share each others’ pain and grief”, he added.
