New Zealand mosque shooting: Here’s what Imran Khan tweets

Islamabad: Claiming that increasing “Islamophobia” after the 9/11 terror attacks in the US was responsible for the attack on two mosques in New Zealand that killed at least 49 worshippers, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday strongly condemned the terror attack on the mosques in New Zealand.

Prime Minister Khan tweeted: “Shocked and strongly condemn the Christchurch, New Zealand, terrorist attack on mosques. This reaffirms what we have always maintained: that terrorism does not have a religion. Prayers go to the victims and their families. ”

In the worst attack on Muslims in a western country, at least 49 people were killed in attacks on the Al Noor Mosque in central Christchurch and the Linwood Mosque in New Zealand.

Imran Khan noted that increasing Islamophobia after 9/11 was responsible for this act of terror and Muslims were demonised deliberately.

He wrote on his Twitter handle, “I blame these increasing terror attacks on the current Islamophobia post-9/11 where Islam & 1.3 bn Muslims have collectively been blamed for any act of terror by a Muslim. This has been done deliberately to also demonize legitimate Muslim political struggles.”
