Afghanistan: Sunni Muslim murders 25 people with jihad suicide attack on Shi’ite mosque during prayers


In my book The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS, which you can order here now, I show that the Sunni/Shi’ite split goes back to the earliest days of Islam, and has often over the centuries erupted into violence.

One witness told Reuters that Shi’ite Muslims, a minority in Sunni-majority Afghanistan, were praying when one man detonated his explosives. A second attacker is reported to have opened fire as worshippers gathered….
