Kabul Suicide Attack Victims Laid To Rest
AVA- Majority of victims of the suicide attack against civilians in Kabul’s Pul-e-Sokhta area were laid to rest on Friday.
The attack left more than 40 dead and 84 others wounded.
Among the victims were two were brothers who were the only breadwinners for their four-member family. They lost their father in an insurgent attack five years ago.
The brothers, Saboor and Ali Paiman were 18 and 24 years old.
Saboor was an electric engineer and was working as an instructor in an English language training center. His younger brother, Ali Paiman, had finished high school.
“I had two sons and they (attackers) killed both in one day. Now I and my daughter are alone,” Rahima, mother of two brothers said.
Relatives of the victims said they want justice and their main demand is peace and security in the country.
“Women have lost their sons and husbands, girls have lost their brothers and parents. Oh President (Ashraf Ghani)! Why are you silent?” asked Makai, cousin of Saboor and Ali Paiman.
“She suffered numerous challenges to raise her children and make them educated. They studied, but now both are killed,” Hanifa, relative of the victims said.
Relatives of Saboor and Ali Paiman meanwhile criticized government over its failure to prevent deadly attacks.
“These youths were killed on Thursday. They (government leaders) will feel the pain of losing someone should this happen to them and their families. If this happens, will they defend their deeds? Does the humanity accept this?” asked Hassan Jan, a relative of the victims.
