Week after the deadly attack on two mosques in Christchurch, Dubai has displayed picture of New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern at Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world.
Dubai’s ruler Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktum thanked Ardern for the solidarity with Muslims in New Zealand. The picture showed Ardern hugging a Muslim woman wearing a black scarf under the word “peace” in Arabic and English.
Sheikh al-Maktum thanked Ardern’s on Twitter for her “sincere condolences” and her support after the attack, which earned her the “respect of 1.5 billion Muslims” worldwide.
The Burj Chalifa is with 828 meters the highest skyscraper in the world.
On March 15, an Australian right-wing extremist shot and killed 50 believers during Friday prayers in two mosques in Christchurch. Ardern was praised worldwide for her response to the attacks.
At demonstrations with survivors of the terrorist attacks, she wore a headscarf demonstratively, and she quickly launched a tightening of New Zealand gun laws.
