A vigil and a minutes silence was observed this afternoon outside the Masjid Umar Mosque Evington Road Leicester.






Hundreds of people came together in thoughts and in prayers for all those affected by the tragic events in New Zealand.


50 people were killed and more seriously injured in a terror attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, on Friday.

This attack seeks to divide our communities but today we all have come together.


We are grateful for the support from the Dean of Leicester, Leicester Cathedral, Sikh Council UK, The International Society of Krishna Consciousness, the Leicester Jewish community, The Sikh Welfare and Cultural Society, Sikhs and Faith Community and many more individuals and community leaders.


Watch the emotional speech in the video from the man who Lost his cousin in this very sad Terror attack.
