OIC strongly condemns NZ-Mosque Terrorist attack, says Muslim World is hurt


Makkah — Organization for Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has strongly condemned Christchurch Mosque terrorist attack that killed over 49 Muslim worshipers and injured more than 40.

OIC officially tweeted the statements of its General Secretary Dr. Yousuf Ahmed al-Othaimeen.

According to the tweet it said, “OIC Secretary General Dr. Yousef Al-Othaimeen, condemned in the strongest terms, the heinous terrorist attack against innocent Muslims praying on Friday, 15 March 2019, at Al Noor & Lindwood Mosques, in Christchurch, NewZealand, that killed more than 40 Muslims.”

Al-Othaimeen has also called the terrorist attack as brutal that has shocked and hurt the feelings of all Muslims around the world.

“The attack has served a further warning on the obvious dangers of hate, intolerance, and Islamophobia”, he added.

He also urged the New Zealand authorities to investigate the attack thoroughly.

In the final tweet, he sent deepest heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families, while asking Allah to shower the souls with mercy and forgiveness.

The Friday’s terrorist attack on the innocent Muslim worshipers has drawn condemnation from all the world leaders. While some have blamed western media for igniting the xenophobic feelings and acting as a bone of contention towards anti-Muslim feelings.
