TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Thousands of Pakistan worshippers in the city of Jhang pay tribute to 50 victims of New Zealand’s double mosque attack by creating human image of the Al Noor mosque.
Thousands of Pakistanis clad in white have gathered in the central city of Jhang to make a human image of New Zealand’s Al Noor mosque in Christchurch city, where 50 people were killed by a white supremacist four weeks ago, Al-Jazeera reported.
Drone images showed worshippers standing in formation on Friday, their snow-white traditional shalwar kameez and prayer caps in stark contrast to the emerald green of a public field, as a second group formed the words “Islam is peace” nearby.
Huge New Zealand and Pakistani flags were also displayed along with a giant banner which read: “Solidarity with the martyrs of Christchurch from Pakistan”.
The tribute was organized by the Muslim Institute, a non-government organization aimed at promoting peace and stability in the Muslim world, which also released the drone footage.
Brenton Tarrant, a 28-year-old Australian and self-avowed white supremacist, has been charged with 50 counts of murder and 39 of attempted murder after opening fire at the Linwood and Al Noor mosques on March 15.
