Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) expressed deep concern about the shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand on Friday noon.
BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi on Friday conveyed this concern at a press conference at the BNP central office at Naya Paltan in the capital.
“Our cricket players, visiting New Zealand, somehow escaped such horrible attack thanked the almighty Allah. Our acting chairmen Tarique Rahman had also expressed his concern immediately after the attack.” Rizvi told.
He also prayed for the departed souls and for the early recovery of the wounded.
Earlier, at least 49 people were killed and more than 50 were injured in shooting at two mosques in Christchurch during Juma prayers.
The visiting Bangladesh cricket team members were warned by a wounded woman asking them not to enter inside the mosque as they were approaching to one of the attacked mosques to offer Juma prayers. Thank god and that woman, Bangladeshi cricketers managed to flee the scene safely.
