Minority Hindu community in Kabul celebrates Navratri festival

The congregation also appealed to the Government of India for their early evacuation

Kabul (Afghanistan) – Despite the restrictions on the freedom of people in Afghanistan since the Taliban regime took over, the good news is about the Hindu minority celebrating the Navratri festival. Kirtan and religious programmes are being organised in Asamai Mandir here. Some videos are being posted on the internet.

Ram Sharan Singh, President of Management Committee for Asamai Mandir, told that they held a “jagrata” at the mandir and also held a “kirtan” and “Bhandara”, where food was served to people. Around 150 people had participated in the celebrations. The congregation also appealed to the Government of India for their early evacuation from Afghanistan. Presently, Afghanistan’s economy has hit rock bottom and people are facing severe hardships.
