May Peace Be Upon You All
New Zealand Muslim Community is deeply shocked and horrified about the shootings in the Christchurch mosques. Our heartfelt condolences are with the people and families that have been impacted by this incident. Our prayers and thoughts are with them.
I would like to express my gratitude to the New Zealand public, Police, politicians, and community leaders that have contacted us at this time. NZMA urges all New Zealanders to stand together and not let this serious and tragic incident spoil the peace within our country.
We urge all Muslim doctors and medical practitioners in the area to provide the necessary support to the community and help the affected people in Christchurch.
We urge all New Zealanders including our Muslim Community who are in the nearby areas to donate blood.
We urge all New Zealanders to stay calm and united. We cannot allow these types of people divide our community.
I urge all New Zealanders to come together and pray for peace.
