New Zealand Attack


The NNMA strongly condemns the horrific, cowardly and Islamophobic terrorist attacks that have taken place in New Zealand today. Almost 50 people are said to have been murdered at two mosques at Christchurch.

The New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, has said that this can ‘only be described as a terrorist attack’ and the Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison called the perpetrator ‘an extremist, right-wing, violent terrorist.’

Meanwhile, the NNMA has received many massages from neighbours and councillors of the city of Norwich expressing their sadness and their support and solidarity during this difficult time.

Here are some of those messages:

I am shocked and horrified by the attack on the two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Please accept our condolences from all at St Peter Mancroft, and be assured that we stand in solidarity with our Muslim friends.

All good wishes

My wife and I just had to communicate our horror at what has happened to your community in New Zealand but did not know how to do so.

Our thoughts and prayers reach out to you all, especially those injured and the families who have lost loved ones. Where has love and tolerance gone?  

We were moved to do this because we have relatives in New Zealand and have visited them so know this does not represent the vast majority of people who live there.


Just want to send you all my sympathy following the terrible and heartbreaking news from New Zealand.



Dear Friends,

In this eerily calm  I just wanted to send a brief message of support and solidarity in the wake of the atrocious massacre in Christchurch, New Zealand. 

It is so terrible, words cannot express what we feel. I am praying for all Muslims in this country and around the world that all of us together can overcome this dreadful scourge of right wing extremism. 

Peace and blessings on your community.

I would like to send my love and solidarity to your community following the devastating events that happened in New Zealand. I hope messages of support like this give you comfort and I thank you for your hands of friendship that have always welcomed me.

Kind regards,


Jo Foster-Murdoch
