Taliban replace statue of Hazara leader in Bamiyan with Koran

The statue of Abdul Ali Mazari, a leader of the Hazara community who was killed by the Taliban, was erected in 2008

The Taliban have replaced the statue of a Hazara leader declared a national martyr by the former government with a replica of the Koran, Bamiyan residents said Thursday — a move they warned could trigger violence.

“Yesterday, they completely removed the statue and replaced it with a replica of the Koran,” said Abdul Danishyar, a civil society activist in Bamiyan.
