Made a huge mistake of watching the video of #NZMosqueShooting in #Christchurch & its aftermath. Feeling extreme level nausea & disgust over this pathetic act of #terrorism. Heart goes out to the families of victims. The perpetrators must be strongly punished. #NewZealandShooting

Let there be Love & peace & tolerance & respect for one another! ❤️❤️❤️🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 Saddened by the news of #ChristchurchMosqueAttack NZ
Any individuals who attack especially at a place of prayer, how can they belong to any religion at all.#WorldPeace #

I have found NewZealanders to be the most empathetic & compassionate.We need to remember that such individuals donot represent any country or religion when they choose this path.
They just spread fear, cause pain & hurt.
Prayers for the shaheeds & their families.#MosqueAttack

Shocked and strongly condemn the Christchurch, New Zealand, terrorist attack on mosques. This reaffirms what we have always maintained: that terrorism does not have a religion. Prayers go to the victims and their families.

Terrorism has no colour, no religion and no country. It is a growing disease spreading in the small minds of this planet and it is deadly. Terrorism is the terminal cancer of humanity!My heart is with the people of NZ,Australia & the whole Islamic community, May Peace be with you

Members of the Bangladesh cricket team, who were outside the Masjid Al Noor when the shootings occurred, escaped unhurt. The team was due to play the final Test match of their NZ tour in Christchurch on Saturday. The game has now been cancelled.
Our heartfelt condolences go out to the families and friends of those affected by the shocking situation in Christchurch. A joint decision between NZC and the @BCBtigers has been made to cancel the Hagley Oval Test. Again both teams and support staff groups are safe.
