Rashid's widow, who, in a recent interview, said that she feels "sad and pity" for the terrorist that killed her husband, a son and 48 others in the Christchurch terror attack on March 15.

“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 added.
