Amitabh Bachchan expresses grief over New Zealand mosque attacks

A few hours after the New Zealand mosque shootings, Bollywood celebrities have reacted by condemning the attacks and sending across prayers to the families of the deceased. Among the many celebrities, Amitabh Bachchan tweeted saying, “We live in terrifying times, it is sad and terrifying news.. prayers,” as son Abhishek also shared his deepest condolences with all the families.

Sonam Kapoor reacting to the incident tweeted saying, “I’m so sorry New Zealand for what happened. I’m so sorry to the Muslim community for all the bigotry and hate you all are facing. I’m so sorry and so very heartbroken for all of you.” Tweets from actors Richa Chadha, Siddharth and Preity Zinta also followed to express their grief about the unfortunate attacks. While Siddharth criticised the spreading of the viral video, Richa did not fail to address the xenophobia, hate, and bloodlust that has spread around the world, as she expressed deep sadness over the sudden attack. 

The New Zealand mosque attacks occurred on March 15 in Christchurch, where two shooters opened fire at civilians during morning prayers at two mosques. The current death toll is at 49, and 20 are reportedly injured, in what is being called a hate-filled crime.
