As Muslim Council of Sri Lanka (MCSL) we wish to express our solidarity with the Government and people of New Zealand in the aftermath of the horrific terrorist attack by a person of Sri Lankan origin in Auckland, New Zealand.
We condemn this barbaric act of terrorism and re-iterate that violent extremism is not tolerated under any circumstances whatsoever.
