OIC to meet on March 22 to curb Islamophobia - Qureshi
Islamabad: To express solidarity with victims of the Christchurch terrorist attack, national flag will remain half-mast at all government buildings.

It was revealed by Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Sunday.

He added that a meeting of foreign ministers of Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) will be held in Istanbul on March-22.

“The idea behind it is to unite and identify a strategy to curb Islamophobia,” he stated while adding that the decision was made after Qureshi spoke with his Turkish counterpart.

On March 15, at least 50 people were killed and dozens wounded in the deadly attack which New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said was “one of the darkest days in New Zealand”.
