New Zealand Mass Murderer Visited Pakistan Last Year – Called it “Incredible Place Filled With the Most Kind-Hearted, Hospitable People in the World”

Guest post by Joe Hoft

The mass murderer of 49 in New Zealand recently visited Pakistan.

He then targeted Muslims at two Bangladeshi mosques less than a year later.

The mass murderer in New Zealand was reportedly an Australian.

The Daily Mail reported:

The man accused of murdering 49 worshipers at a mosque in New Zealand has been identified as a 28-year-old Australian who seemingly spent up to seven years traveling the world and became obsessed with far-right and Neo-Nazi ideology.

Brenton Tarrant will appear in Christchurch District Court charged with murder on Saturday, accused of storming a mosque in Christchurch and opening fire with a semi-automatic shotgun and a rifle on about 100 defenseless people attending Friday prayers.

The Daily Mail reported about his several trips abroad, including Pakistan last year.

In a previous Facebook message about a trip to Pakistan on Facebook, he wrote: ‘an incredible place filled with the most earnest, kindhearted and hospitable people in the world,‘ The Sydney Morning Herald reported.

‘The beauty of hunza and nagar valley in autumn cannot be beat,’ he stated.

The fact that Tarrant recently visited Pakistan is interesting, especially since he spoke so highly of Pakistan in recent Facebook posts. 

The mosques that he targeted in New Zealand were Bangladeshi mosques.  It is well known that Pakistan and Bangladesh are two Muslim nations that do not get along.  The DailyTimes reported in 2016:

Why did the New Zealand killer go to Pakistan and why did he target mosques after such a wonderful experience?  We may never know.
