It is with great sadness to have learnt that an attack took place against worshippers at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, during Friday prayers resulting in the martyrdom of 49 Muslims and injuries to many others.
The Islamic Emirate condemns this incident in the strongest terms. Attacking innocent worshipers is a sign of absolute hatred and an unforgivable crime.
We express our deepest sympathy with the families of victims and pray for Jannah (Paradise) for the martyrs and urgent recovery for the wounded.
We are learning of this tragic incident as mosques and homes are bombed and many civilians are losing their lives in our country every day at the hands of the invaders and stooge Kabul administration forces.
We ask the government of New Zealand to prevent the repeat of such occurrences, to carry out a comprehensive investigation to find root of cause of such terrorism and hand a hefty punishment to the attackers.
