New Zealand to broadcast Islamic call to prayer to honor mosque attack victims - Turkish Minute

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has announced that the Islamic call to prayer will be broadcast nationally following two minutes of silence on Friday to show support for the Muslim community in the country as they return to mosques after a terrorist attack in Christchurch that killed 50 worshippers last week.

Ardern’s announcement came after a comment made by the Turkish president threatening violence to Australians and New Zealanders coming to Turkey.

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan had criticized the Anzacs for their role in the Gallipoli campaign of 1915 and threatened to return anyone who came to his country with anti-Islam sentiment back in coffins. More than 11,000 Australians and New Zealanders died in the Battle of Gallipoli, an effort on the part of the Entente powers to wrest control of the Dardanelles from the Ottoman Empire.
