Releasing a video on Twitter, Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee Chairman Manjinder Singh Sirsa said, "There is a Karte-Parwan Gurdwara within Kabul, Afghanistan, there is a huge bomb blast in its square. The company there informed me about it. There was a big explosion, which broke the glass. A large number of people have been reported injured and casualties. The video shows ambulances heading towards the spot.

Informing the Hindu-Sikh community that it is safe, Sirsa further said in the video, "There is a lot of panic inside the Gurdwara. All the doors of the gurdwara have been closed and no one is being allowed in. There are still 235 Hindu-Sikhs in Afghanistan whose visas are yet to be granted. I request the Government of India to grant visas to these people just as 835 people were evacuated earlier so that they can get out of there safely. So far, our people are absolutely safe. However, there has been a huge loss.”
