PM Khan condemns New Zealand mosques’ attack

PM Khan prayed for victims and their families who were affected in the terrorist attack.

The prime minister said that he ‘shocked’ over the latest incident which ‘ reaffirms what we have always maintained that terrorism does not have a religion.’

Earlier in the day, at least 40 people have been killed and 20 others were in serious condition when gunmen entered two mosques and began shooting in New Zealand’s city of Christchurch on Friday.

Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, in his condemnation remarks, said that Christchurch incident was quite sorrowful.

Qureshi said that he has made contact with Pakistan’s ambassador to New Zealand to gather details of the terror attack.

He said, “Around 300 Pakistanis are residing in Christchurch while no loss reported regarding our nationals in the incident.”

The foreign minister said, “It is being said that the attacker belongs to Australia. We’ll update the nation [on the incident] after getting more details.”
