Muslim community in Malta in prayer vigil to commemorate New Zealand victims

The Muslim community in Malta has held a prayer vigil to commemorate the victims of the Christchurch massacre and show solidarity with their relatives.  The prayer service was held at the Islamic Centre in Paola, and was conducted by Imam Mohammed Elsadi.

Deputy Prime Minister Chris Fearne, Alternattiva Demokratika Chairman Carmel Cacopardo, Democratic Party leader Godfrey Farrugia and Education Minister Evarist Bartolo, as well as Nationalist Party deputy leaders Robert Arrigo and David Agius, were welcomed to the mosque by the Imam.

The Imam thanked Prime Minister Joseph Muscat for his condemnation of the attack on the Muslims in New Zealand, and also the New Zealand Government for the way it reacted to this horrendous attack.

Deputy Prime Minister Fearne stated that terrorism is not an issue of ethics or religion, but rather, of persons who want to carry out violent attacks. Minister Bartolo stated that everyone is human and respect should be shown towards everyone.
