Srinagar, Mar 15: Kashmir Economics Alliance Friday condemned the deadly shooting at two mosques in New Zealand city of Christchurch.
Forty-nine people were killed and at least 20 suffered serious injuries in the shootings targeting the mosques during Friday prayers.
In a statement, KEA Co-Chairman Farooq Ahmed Dar and Vice President Ajaz Shahdhar said that terrorism has no religion. They said the heinous attack illustrated the growing hostility towards Islam “idly” watched by the world.
“With this attack, hostility towards Islam, that the world has been idly watching and even encouraging for some time, has gone beyond individual harassment to reach the level of mass killing,” they said and expressed sympathies with the victim families.
“This attack shows the point which hostility to Islam and enmity to Muslims has reached,” they said and demanded stern punishment for the terrorists involved in the attack.
