Making the Mural – community reflections

Making the Mural – community reflections


I’m here today to help out with the
mural I think it’s a you know really great initiative coming together
collaborating with you guys and working on a message that we can send New
Zealand for how the attacks affected everyone is really positive. You wonder –
we are many races, we are diversified but we are still one and I think this
mural will give a perfect message. This is really a good idea like if we are
working together and you know – and to show the world like this is an inclusive
society and we are all together. We are a diverse country, we are working together
in it. Whatever has happened was very important and we will learn from it and
move forward. What happened was a tragedy followed by some really positive
energy coming from the whole country. There is a good support from the
Government and also now there is a lot of support from the different
organizations such as Vodafone. They still want to help us, they want to
know about us, and they want to share that as well. And they are genuine about it, we can see that. This has been a really good opportunity for me personally and
hopefully the broader project will be good opportunity to start to create
relationships between the Muslim community and outside groups, and create a more coherent society that hopefully doesn’t have horrible things happen in it. I am really glad to be part of that this project that Vodafone have started, about
are mural project, and we are hoping that we will have the best outcome and there
would be best reflection from the Muslim community. This mural is a good way to
bring us back to all of those positive emotions that we had, all of those goals
we might have set, those resolutions that we put forward, and just remind us of
those a little bit and bring us back to each other. I hope that people walk past
it and reflect on their attitudes and maybe make the world slightly less
racist place hopefully. It will always remind them like what actually New
Zealand has gone through you know in March, and this is a very neat and
clean country, clear of pollution, let’s keep it clear from the pollution of
violence and hatred.
