Sikhs and Hindus have come under heinous attacks in Afghanistan following which many have to escape from their nation.

Moor Singh’s family lives in Delhi while he works in Kandahar. The gun pierced his throat and the local Hindus and Sikhs are taking care of the injured Sikh man at a Gurudwara nearby after he was discharged by the hospital.
