KUALA LUMPUR: An aunt of Mu­­hammad Haziq Mohd Tarmizi says she was touched by the overwhel­ming support from all Malaysians who attended the “Solidarity4­Peace” march.

Muhammad Ha­­ziq, 17, was killed during a terror attack at a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand.

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

She expressed gratitude for the opportunity to participate in the gathering with Malaysians, who showed solidarity at the event.

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

“Indeed, it has been testing times for our family members in New Zealand, where our brother (Mohd Tarmizi) was injured and our ne­phew (Muhammad Haziq) left us forever,” she said.

Zarina said she supported the move to make a strong stand to demonstrate solidarity towards peace and harmony.

“Our family thanks Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Dr Mujahid Yusof Rawa for visiting our brother there and getting first-hand information on the situation in Christchurch,” she said.
