Afghans protest against Daesh brutality against Shias – Iran Press TV Tue Jan 3, 2017 3:15PM People in western Afghanistan have staged a massive protest against growing sectarian attacks on Shia Muslims by the Takfiri Daesh terrorists. About 2,000 demonstrators, holding pictures of Shia Muslims killed in recent terrorist attacks, marched on the governor’s office in the city of Herat on Tuesday. The protesters chanted slogans such as “Death to the enemies of Afghanistan!” and “Death to Daesh!” Herat recently witnessed a surge in attacks on mosques belonging to Shia Muslims. A prayer leader was killed and five others wounded in one such attack on Sunday. Qurban Ali, a 40-year-old demonstrator, said Daesh terrorists were desperately attempting to fuel sectarian strife by mounting attacks on Shia religious sites. “Daesh attacks on our mosques are increasing every day. They want to create a rift between Shias and Sunnis,” Ali said, adding, “This is a dangerous trend and we want the government to protect us.”
