Afghan President Ashraf Ghani’s spokesman Sediq Sediqqi called it a “heinous attack.”

The Afghan Presidential Palace (ARG) showed Ghani paying tribute to the body of the imam and remembered Niazi as an enlightened scholar and preacher.

He also called on the Taliban to continue with the ceasefire.

The international community also condemned the attacks. U.S. Charge d’Affaires to Afghanistan Ross Wilson mentioned the victims and said religious places are not “refuges” for violence.

They said the escalation of violence was aimed at creating insecurity within the country. Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abbas Mousavi vehemently slammed the attack and sympathised with the Afghan government’s efforts to bring peace.
