Press Release

SCHAUMBURG, IL – Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi issued the following statement in response to the terror attacks on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand which has already left 49 dead and more wounded:

“Today we mourn the loss of 49 lives tragically taken by acts of Islamophobic, white supremacist terror in Christchurch, New Zealand. Those murdered in these acts of hate at their own mosques, and those wounded with them, were attacked in an hour of prayer as their communities came together. Across the world, people of every faith, creed, race, and background must come together as well and speak with one resounding voice against the violent forces of hate, bigotry, prejudice, and fear. This is a day of mourning for the Muslim community, New Zealand, and all the world, but it must also be one of uniting to build a more diverse, more peaceful, more open, more compassionate, and more tolerant world.  Hate must not and will not prevail.”
