Srinagar, March 24: A brutal and terrorized act on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand,is a kind of carnage resulted into loss of precious human life during Friday Prayers.
The attack was taken place in deliberate way , captured in proper vedeo ,was planned and systematic to show clear hate and aversion for the Muslims and every part of the world viewed the inhumane act hurted the sentiments of common people especially to Muslim Umma.
The ammunition used by terrorist were designed in modern technological way with two semi-automatic rifles, two shotguns, one lever and written marks in different languages we’re present on the guns, cocked in a brutal way killed at least 50 people and many left injured.
Most of people got stuck about the act of unkindness seeming as a part of any Hollywood movie but got viral on social media people , surprised and confused them when terrorist blindly killed number of worshipers.
Terrorist accepted the terror act described himself in media reports as a part of the “alt-right” ,showed extremist of white supremacy and islamophobia. World wide media condemned the terrorist attack and Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern refered it one of New Zealand’s darkest days. Politicians and world leaders also condemned the attacks and called It as the deadliest mass shooting.
A kind of shock and peace shattered act turn the table of peaceful country as it is often been considered a safe country, terrorism free and has a relatively low level of homicide from few decades.
The Prime Minister has proved herself a kind and sympathetic soul for whole Muslim community of Newzeland and went door to door of victimized people and expressed her grief over Mass killing and condemned strongly the insane act.
In the memory of the killing of Christchurch Muslim , she announced the Adhan “call to Islamic prayer”will be broadcasted nationally on Friday,this shows a kind of solidarity and wants that all Muslims should come to mosques and expresses full support for their security and unity ,this represents a good symbolic peace gesture for whole community.
Adhan not only a call for prayer but also a call for peace and unity, it reminds five times a day to each community to unite under peace and Muslims exercise this peace process five times a day by offering Salah.
If we see the texual meaning of the Adhan it expresses peace and unity of people, it is recited five times a day means peace process and unity is circulated at every moment of the day and all Muslims offer every community to embrace peace without any act terrorism and radicalization.
Islam itself a peaceful message to everyone devoid of any kind of terrorism and oppression ,even not trying to propagate Islam in the ways of terrorism. Islam condemns itself the human killings but there are some exemplary people who terrorise the other communities and defaming the peace loving religion of Islam.
So all communities of the world must understand the Islam as a religion of peace and there is no evidence of killing of other people or enforcing them to accept Islam but someone is doing to terrorise the other people for his personal means and it has no place in the circle of Islam.
