Statement on New Zealand Attacks – Religions for Peace Australia

Dear Muslims of Australia,

We as members of Religions for Peace Australia, part of the world’s largest interfaith coalition working for global and regional peace and Interreligious harmony, wish to express our solidarity with the Muslim peoples of Oceania and our unity in sorrow on this vicious attack in Christchurch. We mourn for the victims and we mourn for those relatives and friends directly affected by these evil actions committed by evil men and women.

In sorrow with our prayers,

Des Cahill (Emeritus Professor),
