  • New Zealand Mosque Shooting Rampage

    Would never have figured New Zealand for this sort of thing. Just sad.

    This guy though has taken mass shooting/killing to a who new level with head cam and live streaming. It will be interesting to see what comes of this.

    WELLINGTON (Reuters) - A gunman opened fire on Friday prayers at a mosque in New Zealand killing many worshippers and forcing the city of Christchurch into lockdown as police launched a massive manhunt.

    New Zealand media reported that between nine and 27 people were killed, but the death toll could not be confirmed. Police said multiple fatalities had occurred at two mosques, but it was unclear how many attackers were involved.

    Video footage widely circulated on social media, apparently taken by a gunman and posted online live as the attack unfolded, showed him driving to one mosque, entering it and shooting randomly at people inside.

        Though tragic - I can't say it's entirely unexpected.

        The generation that grew up with images of Muslim terrorism on TV is coming of age, I fear we may see more of this in future.

          I agree. When a whole section of society is dehumanised, characterised and categorised as extreme and violent, when they are presented as an existential threat to "us", then it is easy to hate them, hard to empathise with them and easy to kill them.

          It has happened before many times, twice in the 1990's in Rwanda and Bosnia and once in the 30's and 40's in Europe. It's happening now in Burma. Most people condemn those events but some of those same people perpetuate the same poisonous narrative about Muslims.

            Tragic incident.

            Another Victory for Jihadist Ideology .

            can not imagine any such happening in country like New Zealand .

            It indicates how much psychological stress the Jihadist has caused to create this kind of reaction.

            in mixed religious Societies like India such happenings are Nightmare.

            Now Jihadist will surely mount likely attacks on New Zealand and it's citizens and interests in country and abroad .

            It will result in New Zealand Authorities cracking on possible Islamic Jihadist.

            And Liberals, Socialist, Communists will have more Ammunition for attacks on their government for targeting innocent Humans.

            This is how narrative is made and used by Islamic Jihadist.

            Every body shouts about Muslims in Palestinian.

            but no body talks about the Jewish people forced to leave 50 + Muslim Nations after creation of Israel.

            Same way no body talks about millions of Hindus expelled from their homes in Kashmir by Majority Muslims Population.

              The suspect was also believed to have published a manifesto outlining his intentions, in which he identified himself as a 28-year-old born in Australia and espoused far right and anti-immigrant ideology. BBC
              So he may have been more of an all round racist bigot and the Moslem community were easily identified immigrants. Bit rich considering that he must have been an immigrant to New Zealand himself

                It's possible that few casualties may be from South Asians communities.

                  They do. They also talk about the Hindu rape culture, the little muslim girls kidnapped, gang raped and beaten to death by Hindus. Raping women in broad daylight on busses. The crazy Hindu nut cases who murder muslim farmers for farming beef. When you worship cows and think they are sacred and are willing to kill people who disagree with you then you are part of the problem.

                  Extremism is that problem and the brand of crazy you subscribe to doesn't matter, what matters is the crazy bit.

                  If you refer to muslims as a collective homogeneous group in a disparaging way then you are part of the problem and today you have blood on your hands.

                    According to the NZ PM there are only 3 suspects being held. The fourth person was not connected to the terrorist attack.

                      You left out the mass murdering mobs, 'honour killings', dowry killings/bride burnings (one every 90 minutes in 2012!), ritual sacrifice of children, forced conversions and suicide bombings. Oh, and don't forget the religious/cultural the preference for open defecation, which probably kills and certainly harms multiples of all of the above annually.

                      Hindus handing out homilies on the evils of Islam is as guffaw worthy as the English whining about foreigners 'invading' their little island.

                      Part of the problem indeed.

                        Apparently, some vehicles were rigged with explosives.

                        Further, there is a 'manifesto' written by the shooter.

                            He means : censor TV and hide images of Muslim terrorism .
