A crowd in Pakistan has recreated the shape of Al-Noor Mosque to show solidarity with the victims of the Christchurch terror attack.

Fifty people were killed when a gunman opened fire inside the Al-Noor (Deans Ave) Mosque and Linwood Mosque on Friday March 15. Most of the deaths took place at Al Noor.

More than 20,000 people took part in the event in Pakistan, which was organised by think tank the Muslim Institute.

"Such peaceful and huge expressions has indeed proves the narrative of Muslims maintaining their peaceful society and cooperation among civilizations despite the rise of extreme tendencies in different parts of the world."
