In yet another ISIS backed bombing, a suicide bomber dressed in a burqa posing as one among the crowd detonated a bomb in the midsts of a demonstration in Kabul. It was a large demonstration by the members of a minority community Hazara. And it was a suicide bomb that disrupted the demonstration and killed 80 and injured over 100 in the Dehmazang Circle area in the capital of Afghanistan. It was a demonstration protesting a multi-million dollar power line that was second of its kind, and violence was expected.


What was not expected was a terror attack that changed the whole scene at the protest location as the injured and dead bodies were strewn around. President Ashraf Ghani released a customary statement condemning the attack and said that peaceful protests are a part of democracy and he will do everything to provide them with security. For others it was yet another reminder of a country that continues to be conflict-ridden. However an internal protest –  against a power line that was originally planned through central highlands, Bamiyan Province, with the majority of Hazaras living, but was rerouted – was used for the terrorist agenda.
