Oona, son in NW Victoria, working in Albury listens to Newstalk ZB on his laptop every day so you should be able to pick it up ok#1714874oona March 21, 2019 at 9:33 pm
If anyone outside of New Zealand wants to take part in honoring the muslim call to prayer that will be broadcast across the nation on Friday, March 21 2019, it will be carried by 1Newsnow.co.nz, starting at 1:25 pm, New Zealand time.
Thanks again, Hero42, for your previous help with my question.

But arandar – can this miserable murderer really be seen as a “White Supremacist”, when he actually acts like a miserable defeatist ( like a hate-poisoned revolutionary?), feeling threatened by colored or more disciplined foreigners taking over jobs and social responsibilities (e.g. nursing) for which there are not enough of his own kind available ?#1714878oona March 22, 2019 at 7:51 am
Hi. It’s me again, asking about participating in the call to prayer.
1Newsnow.co.nz’s stream seems to be down (too much traffic?). Does anyone know if it will be streamed live on Facebook?* I sure would be grateful for information on who might be doing that…
*Live streaming actually seems like an entirely appropriate thing to do, given the events of last week#1714879Hero42MemberMember since: July 18, 2008

The broadcast of the Muslim Call to Prayer at 1.30pm is on RNZ and TVNZ and will be followed by broadcast of the Muslim Call to Prayer at 1.30pm, on RNZ and TVNZ.#1714880supergoldMemberMember since: May 9, 2009

Oona, I’m sure it will be all over facebook. Maybe not ‘Live’ but you can rest assured that because of the way millions of people in the world have shown their love in such a positive way, it will without a doubt be on facebook.
As long as you remember to stop for 2 minutes around the time the shooting commenced and remember those who were murdered and the ones injured, and hope/pray it never happens again anywhere in the world, you will feel part of the love and concern.

The “call to prayer” is not said in English, but Arabic. An English translation is –
“Allah is Most Great.
I bear witness that there is none worthy of being worshipped except Allah.
I bear witness that Muhammad is the Apostle of Allah.
Come to prayer.
Come to success.
Allah is most great.
There is none worthy of being worshipped except Allah.”
I will readily observe a silence in respect and compassion, for those killed and injured in Christchurch.
But, as “none except Allah” does not tolerate the concept of Jesus’ divinity, or any other religion, I will pass on the call to prayer.#1714882steph154370MemberMember since: August 12, 2018

So will I mommabear. This clearly does not allow for freedom of worship for all. Jesus is Lord! Part of Jesus teaching,a very large part , is to love our neighbours. Christians are taught to be imitators of Christ.That includes our Muslim neighbours as well as everybody else.It does not include taking on their religious views. The love of God reaches out to all mankind.The Christchurch killing was a sad and horrible indictment on human beings.We must act to reach out to those affected and do all within our power to see that nothing like it ever happens again, for the sake of all people within this country.Making military style weapons illegal will be a start.
