[The handiwork of Pakistani Taliban in Afghanistan. Remember, these Sunni terrorists consider all other faiths to be unbelievers, "Kafirs," who are enemies of God. Thank you Faqir Mohammed.]
Nineteen people were injured in the explosion during Friday’s prayers in the Dawlatzai village, where the bomb had been planted in the mosque’s mehrab (arch).
“Targeting fasting worshippers by planting bombs in mosques is a clear insult to the holy religion of Islam,” Karzai said in a statement. The attack proved the enemies of Afghanistan wanted to torture the innocent people, he added.
Meanwhile, the US embassy in Kabul said the attack against an innocent congregation during the holy month of Ramazan further demonstrated the insurgents had no respect for the safety and security of the Afghan people.
“Our sympathies go out to those affected by yesterday’s bombing, and we wish a speedy recovery to the wounded,” a statement from the embassy said.
It added the US would continue to work with the Afghan people and government for a stable, prosperous and democratic Afghanistan that no longer has to suffer from terrorist acts.
