It’s a time of mourning and sadness for Muslims around the world as they woke up to devastating news coming in from New Zealand. Multiple worshipers were martyred (InshaAllah) when a white supremacist terrorist open fired in a mosque filled with worshipers for Friday prayers on 15 March 2019. Sickening footage of the massacre was streamed live online, and a manifesto filled with white supremacist references was published just before the shootings unfolded.

Of the confirmed 40 people killed, 30 were killed at Al Noor mosque and 10 killed at Linwood mosque. That 10 figure includes three people who were outside Linwood Avenue mosque at the time.

The Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, said it was “One of New Zealand’s darkest days”, calling the attacks “an unprecedented act of violence”.

A Malaysian was among those wounded during a shooting at two mosques in the city of Christchurch, Malaysia’s High commission in New Zealand said on Friday.

“So far, one Malaysian is confirmed injured and currently receiving treatment at the hospital,” the Commission said on its Twitter account.

Indonesia’s Foreign Minister, Retno Marsudi had earlier said six Indonesians were inside the mosque when the shooting occurred, with three managing to escape and three unaccounted for, according to Reuters.

Indian High Commission in New Zealand has named 5 Indian nationals who died in Friday’s mosque attacks which included four men and one woman.

The 50 people killed in the terrorist attacks included 9 Pakistanis – six of whom will be buried in New Zealand, Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi confirmed.
