Shooting at Christchurch in New Zealand

We are horrified by the news of the serious shooting at Christchurch in New Zealand. On behalf of Atlantic Institute, I condemn in the strongest terms, this act of terror targeted at peacefully praying Muslims. Our thoughts and prayers are with New Zealand's Muslim brothers and sisters and all of its people on this dark day.

This reaffirms what we have always maintained: Terrorism does not have a religion. We truly believe in our Interfaith Commitment and remain steadfast in believing that loves is a supreme force over hate -Dr Akif Aydin
