Afghanistan: Muslims bomb rival mosque, murdering 62 - at Friday prayers

Afghanistan: Muslims bomb rival mosque, murdering 62 at Friday prayers OCT 18, 2019 12:30 PM BY ROBERT SPENCER

This story highlights the fact that Muslims themselves have an interest in curbing jihad violence, rather than stigmatizing and demonizing those who call attention to it. Yet there is no large-scale Muslim movement to stop jihad activity, and self-proclaimed Islamic reformers are often insincere opportunists, profiteering off nervous conservatives anxious to prove they’re not “anti-Muslim.”

“Blasts collapse roof at Afghan mosque, killing at least 62 at Friday prayers,” by Abdul Qadir Sediqi and Ahmad Sultan, Reuters, October 18, 2019:

KABUL (Reuters) – Multiple explosions at a mosque in eastern Afghanistan collapsed the roof on worshippers during Friday prayers, killing at least 62 and wounding more than 100, officials said.

Attaullah Khogyani, spokesman for Nangarhar province’s governor, said bombs had been placed inside the mosque in the Jawdara area of Haska Mena district.

“People using an excavator are still working to bring out the bodies and injured from under the roof,” said Sohrab Qaderi, a member of the provincial council in Nangarhar, adding that the death toll was likely to rise.

Malik Mohammadi Gul Shinwari, a tribal elder from the area, said that the mosque had been destroyed.

“It was a heartbreaking scene I witnessed,” Shinwari said.

No group immediately claimed responsibility but the government accused Taliban insurgents, who are fighting to reimpose strict Islamic law after their 2001 ouster by U.S.-led forces.

Sediq Sediqqi, spokesman for the presidential palace, condemned what he said was a suicide bomb attack.

“The Taliban and their partners’ heinous crimes continue to target civilians at the time of worship,” Sediqqi added.

Suhail Shaheen, a spokesman for the Taliban, denied responsibility.

“All witnesses say it was a mortar attack by Kabul Adm.(Administration) forces,” he said in a tweet
