NEW YORK: Prime minister Imran Khan and his New Zealand counterpart Jacinda Ardern discussed the challenge of anti-Muslim sentiment and Islamophobia on the sidelines of the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).
The prime minister held a meeting with Jacinda Ardern and appreciated her leadership after the attacks on Christchurch mosques. Both premiers discussed the challenge of anti-Muslim sentiment and Islamophobia.
The prime minister also briefed Ardern on the plight of the Kashmiri people and the danger of a massacre in India-occupied Kashmir.
In March, more than 50 Muslims were killed and several wounded in separate attacks on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand.
The attacker, Brenton Tarrant, a white supremacist, had live-streamed the carnage on social media. He was charged with 51 counts of murder, 40 of attempted murder and engaging in a terrorist act.
In this regard in April, New Zealand lawmakers rushed through new legislation to ban military-style weapons after 51 people were killed at two Christchurch mosques.
