The Association for Defending Victims of Terrorism issued a statement condemning the terrorist attack at the Seyed al-Shohada girls’ school in Kabul.
The text of this statement is as follows:
Once again, terrorism created crime and killed more than two hundred and fifty schoolgirls. This devastating disaster not only saddened the families of the schoolgirls of the Seyed Al-Shohada School in Kabul, but also left the great Afghan nation and other people of the region and the world in a great grief that will not be rehabilitated with any remedy.
What is the response of the criminals for this shameful act? Is the education of the innocent students a crime? Is not the month of Ramadan the month of divine sanctity and mercy? Does not all of the religions and moral teachings consider the killing of human beings, especially children, as a forbidden act and a great sin? This shameful act shows that terrorists are devoid of any ideology, belief and human conscience and serve as a tool for serving the interests of their commanders in the hegemonic system.
The continuation of decades of provocation of terrorism in the region with the aim of preventing the development and causing disadvantage for countries shows that foreign intervention with claims of countering terrorism has nothing but the spread of the increasing devastation and insecurity for the region. The nations clearly see that foreign troops themselves are the source of insecurity and the spread of terrorism.
Condemning the tragic incident, expressing sympathy with the families of the victims of this crime against humanity and supporting them in the public mourning, the Association for Defending Victims of Terrorism call on the elites, political leaders of the region and international organizations not to be satisfied of expressing their condolences and condemning and take practical and effective steps in the fight against the roots of terrorism and trial of the criminals. It can be possible by victims’ participating in criminal proceedings at international assemblies, foreign intervention and provide justice for the victims, and stability and security for the people of the region.
