Carnage at Christchurch

Published: March 19, 2019

HYDERABAD: Friday, the 15th March, was a horrific day, predominantly for the Muslim world. Several Muslims were offering the Jumma (Friday) payers in the two mosques located in one of New Zealand’s largest cities, Christchurch, when an Australian gunman opened fire and martyred more than 50 Muslims. People across the world, particularly the Muslim community, are in deep sorrow and have condemned such a horrifying attack.

This attack shows that terrorism has no religion. The global community should play an effective role to combat terrorism rather than blaming any religion, or country.

The New Zealand government has now announced that it will provide security to the Muslims at their places of worship and take action against the wrongdoer who is involved in such a brutal attack by punishing him accordingly. These prompt actions should act as a precedent for all governments in dealing with such tragedies.
