"This is a very real tragedy with real victims and we strongly encourage people to not share or view the video".

Dubai's ruler, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, said in a tweet, "on a day of peace like Friday and at a place of worship like the mosque, we witnessed the most heinous crime of religious hatred".

The secretary-general of the 57-nation Organization of Islamic Cooperation, Youssef al-Othaimeen, said in a statement that the attack "served as a further warning on the obvious dangers of hate, intolerance, and Islamophobia".

The Bangladesh cricket team - which had been in Christchurch for a test match and was about to go into the mosque when the attack happened - all escaped without injury. "So, across the churches of Christchurch and Canterbury, we are praying for our Muslim brothers and sisters; for those injured and those who have lost loved ones; for the police, ambulance and other emergency services; and for all in the city of Christchurch who are feeling distress and fear due to this event". "At this tragic time, my thoughts and prayers are with all New Zealanders".

"Who is he to decide who lives and dies?" "London will always celebrate the diversity that some seek to destroy".

While community gardai said they would be attending Friday prayer in local mosques to "make themselves available" to the Muslim community.

'This has been done deliberately to also demonize legitimate Muslim political struggles'.
