Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Friday strongly condemned the terror attacks on two mosques in New Zealand which left 49 people dead.

"We’re deeply shocked to learn the shooting incidents at two mosques in Christchurch of New Zealand. We strongly condemn this dastardly act of terrorism,” the Prime Minister said in a message sent to New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

Conveying heartfelt condolences on behalf of the people and the government of Bangladesh, and on her own behalf, she said,”We stand by the people and the government of New Zealand. Our thoughts and prayers are for speedy recovery of those who got injured.”

Sheikh Hasina said Bangladesh remains steadfast in its commitment against terrorism of all forms and manifestations and maintains a 'zero-tolerance' policy against all kinds of terrorist activities. “Bangladesh will continue to work and cooperate with international community, including New Zealand, to eradicate the menace of terrorism,” she said.

The Prime Minister also assured her New Zealand counterpart of her highest consideration.

Terror attacks on two mosques in Christchurch during Friday prayers killed 49 people and injured at least 20 others. 

The Masjid al Noor in central Christchurch was filled with worshippers when the attack took place, as was the second mosque in suburban Linwood. UNB
