Hyderabad (Telangana) [India], Mar 16 (ANI): A silent candle light protest was carried out by women here on Saturday to show solidarity with the victims of New Zealand’s twin mosque attacks where 49 people were killed.

One of the women protester, Sumitra said, “We are here to condemn the terror attack happened in New Zealand. We believe that people should be above religion. They should live for people. All citizen should together to voice for peace. These terror attacks are happening at the global level. Where ever a terror attack happens, we should condemn it.”

“Nobody organised this solidarity meet. We all voluntary came here. This cruelty is shocking because the mosque is a religious place. Why people are becoming intolerant towards another religion and belief. We are condemning this. We are here to show solidarity,” a woman said.

In the worst ever terror attack in New Zealand, multiple gunmen carried out indiscriminate shootings at two mosques in Christchurch during the Friday prayers, leaving 49 people dead and at least 48 wounded.
