The Pakistani cricketers are condemning the horrific mosque attack in New Zealand. The incident took place earlier in Christchurch, which claimed the lives of 40 innocent people and left 20 badly injured.
Bangladesh cricket team was also present in Christchurch as they were scheduled to play the third test of the series on Saturday. The test has been called off following the horrendous terror attack.
Pakistan team captain, Sarfraz Ahmed said:
So sad to hear of the #NewZealandMosqueAttack In #Christchurch My prayers and thoughts are with the martyrs and their families. Humanity is at a loss, it was a place of worship … thank god the #BangladeshCricketTeam are safe.

I have found NewZealanders to be the most empathetic & compassionate.We need to remember that such individuals donot represent any country or religion when they choose this path.
They just spread fear, cause pain & hurt.
Prayers for the shaheeds & their families.#MosqueAttack

Shocked and strongly condemn the Christchurch, New Zealand, terrorist attack on mosques. This reaffirms what we have always maintained: that terrorism does not have a religion. Prayers go to the victims and their families.
