According to leading Indian media house – HindustanTimes, quoting their sources, the Kabul Gurdwara attack was ordered by Quetta Shura of Taliban at the direction of Pakistan with the larger motive of completely ousting India from Afghanistan.

The HT report says that the entire operation was code-named Blackstar by the Pakistan intelligence, which used the Haqqani network led by Taliban’s deputy commander Sirajuddin Haqqani and elements of LeT.

Talking to a senior official in the Indian security establishment, the HT report says that terrorists probably attacked the gurdwara because it was an easy target.

There have been warnings about a terror attack on the Indian embassy in Kabul and the consulate at Jalalabad for quite some time. It wouldn’t have been an easy target since the security had been beefed up there.

Post the US deal with Taliban, HT report says that there has been a surge in violence in Afghanistan with the resurgence of the Haqqani network and shifting of terror camps of both LeT and Jaish-e-Mohammed from Pakistan.

The report further claims that On July 1, 2019, the Haqqani network targeted the Sikh community in Jalalabad as they came to meet President Ashraf Ghani during his visit to Nangarhar province. In both cases, ISIS was allowed to take responsibility for the attack.
