- This terrorist tried to divide our nation with an evil ideology. But instead, we have shown that New Zealand does not let itself be deterred, it sounded from the al-noor the mosque's imam Gamal Fouda in a speech after the moment had been reminded of common prayer and two minutes silence.

In a campaign started on social media under the hashtagget #headscarfforharmony being non-muslim women are encouraged to take the scarf on in sympathy with the victims in Christchurch.

One of them, who had not the opportunity to take part in Friday's memorial service, but instead has posted a picture on Twitter of himself wearing the scarf, the 19-year-old student Kate Mills Workman.

- of Course all this started by the terrible tragedy in Christchurch, but it is also a way to show that no form of harassment or prejudice based on a religious symbol is okay, says Kate Mills Workman to the AFP.
