8 October 2016
On October 7th, to mark forty days after the August 24th attack on the American University of Afghanistan, over 200 students and faculty, along with friends and family of the martyred, joined in a khatam-e Qur'an, a reading of the Holy Qur'an, at International Campus to remember and honor those who lost their lives.
During the ceremony almost all the participants recited parts of the Holy Qur’an and at the end everyone prayed for the kind souls of those we lost over a month ago.
Mr. David Sedney, Acting President of the American University of Afghanistan, along with senior management of the university, met with family members of the victims during the ceremony.
All the attendees of the ceremony were committed to resuming classes and supporting AUAF.
