Multiple bomb attacks have left dozens of people dead in Afghanistan. Bombs ripping through a Shia mosque in city of Mazar-e-Sharif as well as targets in Kunduz and Kabul have killed tens of people and injured many. It is the second such attack against Hazara community in a week. Why are such attacks happening in the holy month of Ramadan and why are Shia Hazaras being targeted by terrorist attacks?

In this edition, Spotlight interviews Massoud Shadjareh chairman of Islamic Human Rights Commission from London and Kevin Barrett author and Middle East expert from Madison to look at why Daesh, which has claimed responsibility for the terrorist attacks, commits such crimes and why Taliban has failed in ensuring security for its citizens.
