Today marks one weak to the deadly attack in Christchurch New Zealand, claiming lives of more than 50 Muslims who were busy offering their Friday prayers. As deadly as the attack was, the way Kiwis conducted themselves and showed exemplary compassion has shown their unapologetic rejection of hate.
Today, exactly one week after the deadly attack, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern went to Hagley Park in Christchurch, along with thousands of others who came together to acknowledge the Muslim call to prayer, Azan. Reporters, broadcasters, and security personnel were seen wearing Hijab or headscarves to show solidarity with the victims of white nationalist ideology, showing that they firmly stand with the Muslim minority and will do all it takes to protect them.
The gesture has won many hearts across the world. How beautifully the country protected its secularist values and preserved its multiculturalism shows that the kindness and compassion Jacinda has shown, it exactly what this world needs.
