15 March 2024 marks five years since the Christchurch mosque attacks. Community members who were directly affected by the attacks worked with the Ministry for Ethnic Communities and Christchurch City Council to share their views on the appropriate ways to mark the anniversaries of the attacks.

Like previous years, there will be no public event to mark the remembrance. To mark this significant commemoration, community members suggested we invite media organisations to broadcast the adhan (or call to prayer) as an appropriate act of remembrance and symbol of solidarity with Aotearoa New Zealand’s Muslim communities.

We are inviting interested media organisations to play a recording of the adhan on Friday 15 March 2024 at 1.39pm (or at 1:30 if this suits media programming better).

If you are a media organisation that is interested in broadcasting the adhan on Friday 15 March, or you have any questions please email [email protected].
