The Government of India has strongly condemned the terrorist attack in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan. This terrorist attack happened at the educational institution in Dasht-e-Barchi, where the students had come to take the exam. Most of the students belonged to the Hazara community. The Hazara community is considered a minority in Afghanistan and there have been several major terrorist attacks targeting the Hazara community. It is not clear which organization claimed responsibility for this attack. But the IS branch in Khorasan is believed to be still very active in Afghanistan after the Taliban came to power. So far, IS has claimed responsibility for most terrorist attacks.
