Media Release – Violence against Muslims in Christchurch



15 March 2019 5pm

The Wellington Abrahamic Council of Jews, Christians, and Muslims condemns the violence against the Muslim Community in Christchurch today.  While the situation is still unfolding, it is clear that many innocent people have been killed – may they rest in peace.

The Jewish and Christian communities send love and support to our Muslim brothers and sisters.

Such deadly violence aimed at religious people has been unknown in New Zealand – until now, and has no place in our normally peaceful country. Now is the time to stand together, support our Muslim friends, and most importantly, keep talking and keep working to better understand each other.
