New Zealand’s High Commissioner to Fiji, Jonathan Curr says New Zealanders are still shocked that such a cruel and brutal terrorist attack was carried out on their soil on 15th March this year which was the deliberate targeting of a group of the Muslim faith community based on morally bankrupt and evil ideology.

While speaking at the Sathya Sai Service Organisation of Fiji’s National Conference which is centered on the theme 'power of love', Curr says these acts were fueled by Xenophobia, hate, racism, and bigotry.

He says New Zealand was fortunate that they had a Prime Minister who spoke out openly and boldly about the issue as it was a national issue.

Curr says that the Christchurch terrorist attack that killed three Fijians this year is a great demonstration of a time of national tragedy where political leadership showed love and compassion in society and among the people.

He says we do not hear people talking about love in their political life very often but is important that it is done.

Curr says it is also important to recognise that the power of love compels us to be better citizens.

The Chairman of the Sathya Sai Fiji Organisation, Dr. Rajat Gyaneshwar says this national conference is about teaching people how to be more loving towards their neighbors, at the workplace and everyone else.

The conference was held at Zanana League Hall at Brown Street in Suva.
