Srinagar: Condemning the attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand by gunmen, two former chief ministers of Jammu and Kashmir — Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti — said that it is a terror attack.

Abdullah, who is the National Conference (NC) Vice President, said it is good to see most people are calling the New Zealand mosque firing what it is – a terror attack.

“#NewZealandTerroristAttack. No words of condemnation are strong enough & no words of sympathy for the families adequate enough. May Allah grant them Jannat,” Abdullah wrote on micro-blogging site twitter.

Mehbooba, who is the president of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said she admires how the New Zealand Prime Minister clearly stated that there is no place for such terror attacks & and that NZ is a home to all the migrant communities regardless of their religion.

“Admire how New Zealand PM conducted herself & addressed the media post #christchurchnz attacks. Clearly stating that there is no place for such terror attacks & that NZ is a home to all the migrant communities regardless of their religion. Respect for such leadership qualities,” Mehbooba tweeted.

 

Mehbooba said, “We all have a lesson or two to learn from it. Had the same incident happened here, the leadership would have politicised it, indulged in war mongering and covertly supported attacks on Muslims.”

As many as 49 people have been killed, and at least 20 seriously injured, after shootings at two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch.
