‘Power of faith’: PM tweets inspiring interview of Christchurch hero Naeem Rashid’s widow

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan paid homage to the widow of the Pakistani national and Christchurch hero – Naeem Rashid – who bravely sacrificed his life while trying to stop the terrorist in New Zealand on March 15.

The premier on Wednesday tweeted an inspiring interview of Ambreen Naeem, whose husband and son were among the 50 martyrs of the horrific Christchurch terrorist attack.

“For all those within and outside the Muslim world these words of Shaheed Naeem Rashid’s wife should make everyone understand the power of faith in Allah and Prophet Muhammed (Peace Be Upon Him),” PM Imran wrote.

“How this faith in Allah and His Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) transforms humans into strong and loving beings who can even feel pity for a terrorist, a mass murderer, who took away their loved ones,” the prime minister continued.

In the interview, the widow shared that her husband “was a brave and loving man and love is what made him do what he did.”

50-year old Rashid who hailed from Abbottabad was a university professor. He received martyrdom along with his 21-year-old son Talha in the Christchurch attacks when a self-confessed white supremacist Brenton Tarrant opened fire during Friday prayers, killing at least 50 and leaving two dozen others injured.
