KUALA LUMPUR: An aunt of Muhammad Haziq Mohd Tarmizi (pic) says she was touched by the overwhelming support from all Malaysians who attended the Peace for Solidarity march.

Muhammad Haziq was killed during the terror attack at a mosque in Christchurch.

Zarina Shuib, 53, said while the family was devastated, she accepted the loss as the will of Allah.

"Although this challenge is hard for us, our family redha (accept) in what has been decreed for all believers in the principle of qada (destiny) and qadar (fate)," she said at the Solidarity for Peace march on Saturday (March 23).

She said she supported the effort to make a strong stand to show solidarity towards peace and harmony.

Zarina's 42-year-old brother Mohd Tarmizi Shuib was injured during the terrorist attack at the Al Noor Mosque and Linwood Mosque.

Malaysians Muhammad Nazril Hisham Omar and Rahimi Ahmad were also injured.
