Residents of Qarabagh district of Kabul on Tuesday staged a protest demonstration in the district against the blasphemous leaflet drop by US forces in Parwan, Kapisa and Kohdaman district of Kabul province and called for the prosecution of those involved. 

Many protesters waved Afghan flags, however a number of Taliban flags were also seen. 

The protestors blocked Kabul-north highway for three hours and chanted the slogan ‘death to America’.

“We are prepared to sacrifice our lives for the sake of our religion,” said one protestor Hekmatullah Haqmal.

“It is better for the US to leave Afghanistan as soon as possible, the US has killed thousands of our brothers since it started the war in Afghanistan sixteen years ago,” said another protestor Saifurrahman Habibi.

“The US has repeatedly insulted our religious values, we can never pardon such blasphemous acts,” said protestor Ghulam Jailani.
