Mehboob Mufti on Christchurch shooting

Srinagar: Pointing at the hypcrisy and the way acts of terrorism is used for political gain, former Jammu & Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti said there is a lesson for the Indian leadership to learn from New Zealand Prime Minister's handling of the situation after the Christchurch mosque shooting Friday.

As many as 50 people died after a white supremacist and right wing terrorist stormed into two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand and opened fire at peaceful worshipers offerig Friday afternoon prayers. Immediately after the terrorist attack, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern appeared on television and delivered a speech which is hailed as a combination of intelligence, strength, and empathy.

Praising Jacinda Ardern, Mehbooba Mufti wrote on Twitter: "Admire how New Zealand PM conducted herself and 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 Mufti also said that there is a lesson to learn from how NZ Prime Minister handled the post-terror attack situation.

"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", she wrote in another message posted on the micro-blogging social media site.

Meanwhile, the Christchurch terrorist, who is identified as Brenton Harrison Tarrant, was on Saturday produced in the local court. Shockingly, the 28-year-old Tarrant who live-streamed the entire terror act on Facebook, did not show any remorse. Instead, he smirked at photographers during the hearing and was seen making the white power gesture.

He was later sent to jail until his next scheduled appearance in the South Island city's High Court on April 5.
