The Indian government said it would facilitate Afghan Hindus and Sikhs and locals who had supported Indians to return home. The Ministry of External Affairs assured, “The government will take all steps to ensure the safety and security of Indian nationals and our interests in Afghanistan,”

India has established a Special Afghanistan Cell to coordinate repatriation and related matters. Sikh and Hindu families have sought refuge in a gurdwara in Kabul as hundreds of thousands of people attempt to flee the nation after the Taliban took control of the capital.
