New Zealanders gather for public prayers 1 week after mosque shootings

A giant image of a grieving Jacinda Ardern was beamed out from the world's tallest bulding on Friday (March 22), a tribute from Dubai for the New Zealand Prime Minister's high-profile support for Muslims after a terrorist attack on two Christchurch mosques.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has received wide praise for her support of the Muslim community following the shootings.

Muslims returned to Christchurch's main mosque on Saturday for the first time since a white supremacist massacred worshippers there, as New Zealand sought to return to normality after the tragedy. "We are one", Ardern said in a short speech, followed by two minutes of silence. Qureshi reminded that the mainstreaming of anti-Muslim sentiment by populists in the West had led us to this place.

In the words of Imam Fouda, "The victims did not die in vain".

According to the MailOnline, it was projected on the same day New Zealand had broadcast the Muslim call to prayer on national television and radio.

It is little more than a week since a far-right terrorist murdered 50 people at two mosques in Christchurch.

To paraphrase Tolstoy, profitable automakers are all alike; every unprofitable automaker is unprofitable in its own way. The Model Y is a small, all-electric SUV, that looks a lot like a taller version of the Model 3 sedan.

"I wanted to say: "We are with you, we want you to feel at home on your own streets, we love, support and respect you", Ashman said.

Many people responded to the tweet, with one person saying: "Our PM reflects the hearts of the New Zealand people".

Later on Friday, a mass burial will be held after police confirmed on Thursday all of the dead had been formally identified and their bodies ready for release to the families. Tarrant is due back in court on April 5 and police said he is likely to face more charges.

Ardern did not specify what punishments would be handed down to anyone in New Zealand who violated the new weapons ban, although she stressed their would now be much stricter regulations on sales of semi-automatic and automatic weapons.

Police and tradesmen had been working intensively in the hope of repairing the mosque's bullet-scarred and blood-spattered interior ahead of afternoon prayers. "We are determined to not let anyone divide us", he added, as the crowd erupted with applause.

He provided the required references and was interviewed the following month in person in his home, which was also inspected.
