Pakistani players and Christchurch mosque attack victims' families pose for a group photo on Saturday/Twitter photo


Players and officials of the Pakistan Cricket team, on Saturday, met the families of the victims of the Christchurch's Mosque attack at Hagley Oval, New Zealand. In a video shared by the Pakistan Cricket Board, on Twitter, the players can be seen chatting and exchanging gifts with the victims of the attack.

"I know that we did not go through the situation that you people did, but we do understand the pain that you feel," batting coach of the team, Younis Khan, told the families.

"We share in your sorrow," Younis added.

The Pakistan cricket team members are playing a test series in New Zealand, led 1-0 by the Kiwis. Pakistan is currently playing in Christchurch in the second test of the series.

The Christchurch mosque attack

More than 50 individuals lost their lives in March 2019, when a 28-year-old right wing extremist named Brenton Tarrant targeted two mosques in Christchurch.

In August 2020, Tarrant was sentenced to life imprisonment, without parole; first such sentence in the history of the country.

In a 74-page manifesto Tarrant had posted online, he had described himself as a white supremacist who was out to avenge attacks in Europe perpetrated by Muslims.

Tarrant had admitted to 51 murder charges, 40 counts of attempted killing, and one charge of committing a terrorist act, in the live video which he had streamed on social networking platform Facebook.
