I don't know if we want the other thread anywhere on this forum, tbh.

Please don't harm someone else over this. This is a horrific massacre and tragedy. More violence and bloodshed will only cause more pain.

I meant in this thread and to hold our own in discussions dude, not violence, I am a civilized person, unlike our haters. I hate violence and war. I would never hurt somebody unless it was self defense or I was conscripted in the military and sent to go fight enemies of America, to which I am loyal to. Both have near 0% chances of occurring.

I bet scores of New Zealanders are proud of this guy.

If the info online about the shooter is correct, he is Australian.

This is horrific. Absolutely horrific. It displays the toxic and hateful alt-right internet culture in its most disgusting and violent manner.

I only hope that sane people involved in these circles will learn from this incident and withdraw from these foul circles- those that cheered this attack are truly lost.

I’m sorry if I offended anybody too much, I’m really overwhelmed and scared now, I am just going to head out for the night. Take care and peace to all.

I have to say this is an especially sad story because of how resiliant Christchurch has been over the past few years since the earthquakes. It seemed like one of those few cases where a major trauma like that actually led to positive community building, rather than division.

Why? Because someone who was rightfully scared spoke his mind at his current state? That doesn’t warrant a removal nor a separation.

CNN UPDATE.

Explosive devices were attached to vehicles.
New Zealand police commissioner Mike Bush told reporters that there were multiple improved explosive devices attached to vehicles as part of the attack.

Bush said these had been "made safe by the defense force."
"This goes to the seriousness of the situation," he said.
He said that police were not assuming the situation was limited to Christchurch at this stage.

CNN UPDATE.

Still no death toll from police, identity of victims not known.
New Zealand police commissioner Mike Bush said again there have been "multiple fatalities" but couldn't say at this point how many. "It is significant," Bush said.

Bush added the identities of all the victims weren't known at this stage.
The New Zealand police press conference has now wrapped up. Bush said there would be more information available soon.

Feel sick to my stomach about this. A lot of things I want to say but can't put it into words. For now I'll just wish Muslims to stay safe.

Quote
New Zealand police: Don't share video of the shooting.
CNN.

... Police earlier told CNN they were "aware" of a specific video, but were unable to confirm or deny its veracity.
The disturbing video which has not been verified by CNN, purportedly shows a gunman walking into the mosque and opening fire.


Have not seen this video (or where it might be posted) and I don't think I want to either.

My local TV channel indicated that there are reports that those killed might be around 50 individuals.
Horrible.

The shooter literally live-streamed the event and encouraged viewers to subscribe to PewDiePie.

To go sincerity mode for a moment, if any Muslim forumites want someone to talk to or vent at about this, I always read my PMs.

Ditto. My heart breaks for those personally affected, but also for all Muslims.

iAs always, Ironic the descendants of people who murdered the local inhabitants and took their land call peaceful immigrants "invaders".

Also can we maybe not give this walking cancer pile attention by spreading the video around?

While certain people may go too far in their attempts to cast blame, calling for people 'not to bring politics into this' is foolish. This terrorist attack was an explicitly political event
