Terror attack in New Zealand
Sir, – Our thoughts and prayers go out to all our Muslim brothers and sisters, and the residents of Christchurch who have been directly and indirectly affected.
Reverence for all human life is the essence of Islamic teaching. This is a time for prayers and efforts to stop such senseless violence in the world.
As a community committed to peace and rejection of all forms of extremism, we stand shoulder to shoulder with all those affected.
We pray for the speedy recovery of the injured and offer our deepest condolences to the families and friends of the victims. – Yours, etc,
Dr NAUMAN IFTIKHAR,
