Lahore, March 23, 2019 (PPI-OT): Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has commended the Prime Minister of New Zealand for taking unique steps for the consolation and expression of solidarity with the Muslims after the terrorist attack on Masajid in Christchurch. Jacinda Ardern has won the hearts of the Muslims and exhibited brotherhood, love, and affection and led the way to stop extremism at international level, he said. She has set an example of solidarity and unity through her positive attitude. She has proved by attending the Juma prayer congregation that terrorism is not associated with any religion.
Usman Buzdar said that we pay tributes to the New Zealand government for directly airing the call for the prayer of Juma on television and radio for expressing solidarity with the Muslims. A two-minute silence was observed for martyrs in New Zealand and a message of unity against terrorism was given. He said that Jacinda Ardern has negated the nefarious designs of the terrorist by keeping him nameless. The international community will have to collectively fight the terrorism, he added.
