He said he was in the helicopter himself, the video of which went viral, in which people could be seen cheering to return home. Sukhwinder Singh, a resident of Punjab, said Afghanistan took a dangerous turn after the Taliban came to power in Kabul. He said, ‘Sometimes I felt like I couldn’t come back home. There was no hope.
Asked if he would return to Kabul for work, Sukhwinder said it depended on how Afghanistan’s relations with the Indian government would continue.
Praveen Singh, who works at the UAE embassy in Kabul, said he would never consider returning. This is because the painful and life-threatening experience they experienced there is frightening.
Kamal Chakraborty, who works for a private company in Kabul and returned home on Sunday, said, “I am happy to be back home safely. But, whenever I think about the situation there, I just shudder at the thought of it. He said Afghans help Indians in Kabul a lot. This is the time when the Indian government should also do something for them.
India is like a ‘second home’
At the same time, a total of 168 people, including 107 Indians and 23 Afghan Sikhs and Hindus, were flown by Indian Air Force C-19 military transport aircraft from Kabul to Hindon Air Force Base near Delhi. The group included Afghan MPs Narendra Singh Khalsa and Anarkali Honyar as well as their family members. Describing India as his ‘second home’, Khalsa told his gruesome story when his vehicle broke off from a convoy of people being taken to Kabul airport.
“They (Taliban) separated us from others yesterday (Saturday) on our way to Kabul airport as Afghan citizens,” Khalsa said. We ran away because the kids were with us. The Kabul-based MP expressed hope that he would make arrangements to return to his country once the situation improves.
Khalsa said, ‘India is our second home. We have lived there for generations. We pray to God that Afghanistan be rebuilt, and we can go back there and serve the people in our gurdwaras and temples. Regarding the situation in Afghanistan and its new rulers, Khalsa said, “The Taliban is not a group – there are 10-12 groups. It is difficult to find out who is and who is not.”
We pray to God that Afghanistan should be rebuilt and we can go back there and serve the people in our gurdwaras and temples.
