ISESCO condemns terrorist shootings against worshippers at two Mosques in New Zealand 

The Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO) strongly condemned today’s terrorist shootings perpetrated by an Australian right-wing extremist at Al-Noor and Linwood Mosques during Friday prayer at Christchurch, South of New Zealand, which killed 40 and seriously injured 12 people according to a statement by the local competent authorities.

In this regard, ISESCO stated that this heinous terrorist attack is a crime against humanity which reflects racist and extremist groups’ bitter hatred against Islam, and called for international condemnation of such act and punishment of its perpetrators. The Organization also called for solidarity with Muslims in New Zealand and expressed its confidence that New Zealand authorities will take the necessary measures to punish terrorists and protect mosques and Muslims on its territory.
