Muslims in Bangladesh condemn New Zealand mosque shootings
Hundreds of angry protesters in Dhaka, Bangladesh’s capital, chanted “allahu akbar” (God is Greatest) after Friday prayers. “We will not let the blood of Muslims go in vain,” said one protester.
Political and religious leaders around the world expressed disgust and sorrow at the deadly shooting at two mosques in New Zealand on Friday, with some blaming politicians and the media for having stoked hatred of Muslims that led to the attack.
As governments in Asia and the Middle East scrambled to find out how many of their citizens had been caught up in the Christchurch bloodshed, there was anger that the attackers targeted worshipers at Friday prayers.
