More than 20 thousand Pakistanis gathered in the Jhang city on Friday, to pay tribute to 50 victims of New Zealand’s dual mosque attack carried out last month by a white supremacist.
People clad in white dress reportedly gathered in the central city of Jhang to make a human image of New Zealand’s Al Noor mosque in Christchurch city.
The tribute was organized by the Muslim Institute, a non-government organization which aimed at promoting peace and stability in the Muslim world.
Drone images being circulated on social media shows a group of people standing in formation, wearing white shalwar kameez and prayer caps standing on the green grass of the field marking stark contrast. While the second group formed the words “Islam is peace” nearby.
Huge New Zealand and Pakistani flags were also displayed along with a giant banner displaying, “Solidarity with the martyrs of Christchurch from Pakistan”.
Nine among the Christchurch victims were of Pakistani origin.
