What's the story?

It's a sad day for the world today. Hate found its way to New Zealand, as two Christchurch Mosques were attacked by a gunman in an act of terror during Friday afternoon's prayers.

40 people are being reported dead, and by latest reports, 48 people are being treated for gunshot wounds at Christchurch hospitals.

WWE Superstar Mustafa Ali reacted to the news on social media, condemning the incident, and speaking out about the attack.

In case you didn't know...

During Friday Afternoon's prayers in New Zealand at Al Noor Mosque on Dean's Road, and Linwood Islamic Centre on Linwood Avenue, shootings took place.

The gunman entered the mosque at 1:40 PM in Christchurch and opened fire. It has been confirmed that 30 are dead and 10 injured at the Linwood Islamic Centre.

Four people were taken into custody by the police, with one being released later.

The shootings came as a shock to New Zealand, as this is the single worst mass shooting in the history of the country. Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrisson described the shooting as a 'rightwing extremist attack'.

What makes the situation even more frightening is that none of the alleged perpetrators were on a watchlist of potential threats.

The situation has been called evolving as the police also discovered explosive devices strapped to cars. The Prime Minister of New Zealand Jacinda Ardern said the attack was well-planned and appeared to target immigrants to New Zealand.

Adern spoke out against the attackers saying, "we utterly condemn and reject you."

A warning has been issued by the police as well, asking people to avoid mosques for the day fearing that the threat from attacks are yet to be difused.

The heart of the matter

Mustafa Ali is of Pakistani origin and a former policeman in his own right. Upon hearing about the attack he took to social media to express his thoughts.
