Kabul Gurudwar attack reaction on Twitter

Mumbai: Soon after terrorists attacked a Gurudwara in Central Kabul, hate mongers and paid trolls started flooding social media sites with anti-Muslim contents to spread a deliberately devised narrative to gain political mileage out of the tragic incident.

As many as 27 Sikhs lost their life after terrorists stormed Gurudwara in the Shorbazar area of Kabul Wednesday morning. Around 150 people were worshipping in the Gurudwara at the time of the attack.

However, instead of sympathising with the victims and condemning the terrorists to whichever group or faith they belonged, paid trolls tried to link the incident with the humanitarian efforts of the Sikh community, especially their extra-ordinary support extended during the 101-day long historic anti-CAA-NRC-NPR protest at Shaheen Bagh in New Delhi.

"The Sikhs were providing free Biryani to Muslims protesting against CAA in Shaheen Bagh. Look what they did to them in Afghanistan", a post filled with hate read.

Kapil Mishra, BJP leader accused of hate speeches before and after Delhi February 2020 carnage, also took the similar lines.

"11 Sikhs died in Kabul. Attack on Guru Dev... very tragic. Wonder... what the people serving food in Shaheen Bagh would have been feeling today", he wrote in the disturbing message posted on Twitter.

Interestingly before others can respond to this hate mongering, some Sikhs took it upon themselves to reply Kapil Mishra's outrageous post.

"Sikhs will continue to stand for victims and will continue providing Langar to needy, doesn’t matter it’s ISIL or someone else behind this attack. For us, Hindus and Muslims are human first. Killing us is easy but no one can kill principles given to us by our Gurus. DEG TEG FATEH", Gurpreet S. Sahota, senior journalist and editor of a Punjabi newspaper wrote on Twitter.

Sahota's cunning reply to Kapil Mishra won hearts. The post has been re-tweeted by more than 1,900 users and is liked by 6,600 as on Thursday morning.

"They want us to hate everyone. But we wouldn’t because that’s how we are different than them", another Sikh wrote while commenting on Sahota's post.
