Pakistanis Create A Human Mosque To Remember Christchurch Martyrs
More than 20,000 Pakistanis gathered in Shor Kot to create a human mosque to promote peace and remember the Christchurch martyrs.
The participants created a mosque which was the exact replica of the Al-Noor mosque of Christchurch to show their solidarity with martyrs. They also recited Durood Shareef to pay their respects to our beloved Prophet (P.B.U.H). A Muslim Institute at Hazrat Sultan Bahu R.A Darbar took the initiative to promote the message of peace.
These 20,000 helped deliver a positive image of Pakistan around the world and sent a message to the whole world saying Islam is a Peaceful religion and the extremists are not part of the religion.

The Christchurch mosque shootings were two consecutive terrorist shooting attacks at mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, during Friday Prayer on 15 March 2019.The attacks began at the Al Noor Mosque in the suburb of Riccarton at 1:40 pm and continued at the Linwood Islamic Centre at about 1:55 pm. The gunman live-streamed the first attack on Facebook Live.
The attacks killed 51 people and injured 49. Brenton Tarrant, a 28-year-old Australian man, described in media reports as a white supremacist and part of the alt-right, was arrested and initially charged with one murder. Tarrant was later charged with 51 murders, 40 attempted murders, and engaging in a terrorist act; he pleaded not guilty to all charges, with the trial expected to start in May 2020. The attacks have been linked to an increase in white supremacism and alt-right extremism globally observed since about 2015. Politicians and world leaders condemned the attacks, and Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern described it as “one of New Zealand’s darkest days”. The government established a royal commission of inquiry into its security agencies in the wake of the attacks, which are the deadliest mass shootings in modern New Zealand history
