Dr. Shahzad Akhtar (IR Expert):
I have spent almost seven years in New Zealand for study purpose and have deep contacts with other communities in New Zealand. New Zealand is among anti-nuclear and most peaceful countries in the world. Racism is even least involved in politics there. The Australian citizen involved in this shocking terror attack was not a psycho and committed the act in his senses. The attack in New Zealand appears to be motivated by white supremacy. PM rightly blamed Islamophobia for the mass shootings that killed at least 49 people.
