This morning we in Europe awoke to the horrific news that 49 Muslim worshippers had been killed and at least 20 more wounded in shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand.
The European Muslim League extends its heartfelt sympathies and prayers to the 44,000-strong Muslim community living there as they struggle to come to terms with this shooting, the worst in the history of their country.
A man in his late twenties has already been charged with murder and will appear in court on Saturday morning in what police are treating as an extremist, right-wing terror attack.
We sincerely hope this horrific event does not deter Muslims and people of other faiths from going to their places of worship today or any other day. Everyone, no matter who they are or how they pray should be allowed to do it freely and without fear.
However, we would also add, that this crime is what happens when hate spirals out of control. EML would urge politicians of all stripes to be careful in their choice of language and rhetoric when speaking about or referring to minority groups here in Europe and elsewhere.
In the meantime we would urge people of faith and no faith to come together in a spirit of unity in memory of those who died as they worshipped in the two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. Peace, understanding and tolerance is needed today more than ever.
