We witnessed the most horrific hate crime that killed 49 worshippers on a blessed day. Our condolences to New Zealand, to the families of the victims and to Muslims across the world. On behalf of UAE that declared the Year of Tolerance, we call for a unified stand against hatred.

People of Dubai are devastated after the attack
There’s a reason why this is such huge news in and about New Zealand.
We are a country where one person being killed – whether it’s a murder or a car crash – still makes the news.
Over two dozen deaths is something we don’t even know how to comprehend. #Christchurch
