The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community strongly condemns the horrific terror attack on two Mosques in Christchurch on Friday.
Our thoughts and heartfelt prayers are with the victims and their families.
This was a deliberate and targeted attack on innocent worshippers on the most Holy day for Muslims. It demonstrates that terror has no religion and knows no bounds.
National President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Australia and Grand Imam Mr. I. H. Kauser said:
“This is indeed a very sad day for all. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. It is critical that at this time we all remain united against hatred, division and bigotry. All extremists share a common goal to divide our community and spread fear and we must make sure they are not successful. I urge all to remain calm and continue attending their local Mosques. We must not bow down to the terrorists.”
