“We were so scared and we started crying,” Mominul Haque on Christchurch attack
The horrific incident in Christchurch that shook the world on Friday, swindled Bangladesh hard as most of the premier cricketers of the country were in near of the terror attack site.
Mominul Haque said, “We came out after lunch. We were supposed to do have training at 2:00 PM and so we were expected to reach at 1:30. We were slightly late because of Riyad [Mahmudullah] bhai‘s press conference. Due to the presser we came out after 10 minutes.”
“When we reached the Mosque we saw everyone lying down. A woman from the car did the same and shouted ‘don’t go inside someone is shooting’. We understood the gravity of the incident,” he continued.
“We were so scared and we started crying inside the bus,”
“We saw from the bus everyone coming out of the mosque and lying down on the floor. Their body was covered with blood,”
Mominul described,”I cannot express in words how scared we were at that point of time. You cannot imagine what it takes to see such horrendous incidents in front of your own eyes. We were crying just being afraid.”
“Had we reached five minutes earlier we would have been inside the mosque and everyone would have been finished. It is the grace of almighty that we reached there five minutes later,” Mominul added.
The Silver Fern of New Zealand will be displayed on Sydney Opera House tonight – a symbol of solidarity, support and respect for the people of New Zealand.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those impacted by the tragic events in Christchurch.
