Highlights
High school attack killed 90 girls in Kabul.

The families put the casualties at 90 deaths and over 240 wounded all students. They also called on the international community, the UN, human rights bodies to probe the brutal attack.

Referring to repeated targeting of Shia people by terrorist groups in Afghanistan, they also urged the international bodies to officially confirm the systematic genocide of Shia people in the country.

But as observers say, it seems that neither terrorist attacks nor political obstacles can't push back the determined young generation of Afghanistan as they are fully committed to go forward in order to build their own country by relying on knowledge instead of war and violence.


It was in the afternoon of May 8 when three back to back blasts rocked western Kabul and many fasting residents of the area witnessed how dozens of schoolgirls were hit by these blasts .although the Taliban has denied any involvement in the attack but none of other terrorist groups including has claimed responsibility too.

Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC) has emphasized on the need for a practical step from the government. President Ghani has already ordered a thorough probe into the attack and has called on his government to work on a plan to boost the security in Kabul.
