A man was embraced by an audience of Muslims after sharing his message of love and diversity on a Christchurch street.
Footage of the beautiful moment shows the man delivering a poem that slams terrorism as hatred and celebrates difference as the thing that "makes our country beautiful".

"The support here in New Zealand has been so great, we're lost for words," Basha told Newshub.
"I live in Auckland but went down to Christchurch after hearing about the shooting.
"We were standing on the side of the road in Christchurch and this brother drives past and shows a heart symbol with his hands. Then five minutes later he came back and did this."
Read the full poem below:
Terrorism has no colour
Terrorism has no ethnicity
Terrorism has no one belief
The only thing all terrorism shares is hatred
Hatred for all those things that make our world beautiful
If a rainbow was only one colour, would you still appreciate it?
If everything smelt the same, would you still go out of your way to smell a rose?
If every sound had the same tone, would you still listen to music?
You see, the thing that makes the world a beautiful place is the thing that makes us human: difference
And this is especially true for the place we call home
Our country is diverse
Diverse in our land, diverse in our culture
And our diversity is what makes our country beautiful
Don't let hatred take over your heart just because things are different
Look after each other, family
