Ahmadiyya Muslims pay tribute to Christchurch terror victims
THE Ahmadiyya Muslim community have vowed to defeat hatred and not bow down to the threat of terrorism.
Two days after the brutal massacre of at least 50 Muslims during Friday prayers at two Christchurch mosques, the Stockleigh Baitul Masroor Mosque hosted a vigil ceremony for those who lost their lives.

He said the terrorist’s mission to scare Muslims from practicing their faith had failed.
“If we stop going to the mosque it would be like bowing down to the terrorist and his violence,” he said.
