NEW Fox News articles can now be heard on audio! Afghan Sikhs found it difficult to survive at home due to the turmoil there, so they took a flight to New Delhi, India, on Wednesday.

Like other religious minorities, the Sikh community in Afghanistan has consistently faced violence.

As the refugees attempted to find shelter and establish themselves on Indian soil, it was observed that Afghan Sikhs, including women and children, were reconciling with their friends and relatives outside the New Delhi Airport.

An Afghan Sikh who had returned to India stated, “In addition to the Taliban regime’s predicament in Afghanistan, there are other militant groups who want to take control of the nation.”

Before the Taliban took control of the nation, there were about 300 Sikh families living in the mostly Muslim country of Afghanistan.
According to locals and media sources, many people departed the nation after the takeover.
Still awaiting visas to leave Afghanistan and find safety in other nations are hundreds more Sikhs.
