Hundreds of Hindus and Sikhs have recently fled their homes in Ghazni province in Afghanistan due to insecurity
Hundreds of Hindus and Sikhs have recently fled their homes in Ghazni province in Afghanistan due to insecurity. Ghazni is one of areas home to thousands of the Hindu and Sikh religious minority along with the capital Kabul, Nangarhar, Khost, Parwan and Baghlan provinces. Most of Sikhs have been busy in traditional medicine.
The Hindus and Sikhs have five temples in Ghazni and own farmlands and houses.
Attacks against their communities in recent years have caused great panic as most of Hindus and Sikhs who were significantly involved in the Afghan business, left their assets and properties behind and took refuge to abroad.
The Ghazni Sikhs fled the province after it fell to the Taliban for a few days in 2018.
