On Friday, March 15, 2019, one of the most harrowing and brutal attacks of recent years in Christchurch, New Zealand, targeted Muslims who came together for Friday prayers. As Meridyen, we pray the Almighty to give patience for the families of those who are martyred in these attacks and offer prompt recovery for the wounded. We invite the whole Islamic world for solidarity...
Considering the connections of the killers, the symbols they used and the way they planified and executed their attacks, it appears clearly that this was not an isolated incident. These attacks are the result of a long-time propaganda based on Muslim hostility that has been loudly voiced, particularly in the West world.
Taking into account all the details and the recent process, it has emerged that Muslims should now be urgently engaged in more systematic activities to spread the truth against universal propaganda, without giving premiums to provocations.
While the existence of some driving mechanisms, that are working to increase the tension at the global level and the repetition of similar attacks, is so evident, every Muslim must fulfill his duty in his righteous demeanor. Therefore, it is time to be mobilized in a calm manner and avoid provocative behaviors as it is appropriate for a Muslim.
