New York Reflects on the New Zealand Mosque Shooting


Imam Khalid Latif, university chaplain for New York University, and executive director of the Islamic Center at NYU, talks about how the Muslim community is reacting to the shooting at a New Zealand mosque, and takes calls from Muslim listeners ahead of Friday prayers.

"People like this are individualized and spoken about in terms of mental health issues and being lone wolfs. The reality is we have a deep problem with white supremacist terrorism… it’s not only an issue of ethics and morality, it’s something that’s lethal," says @KLatif@ICNYU.

"One of these attackers in New Zealand in a manifesto had cited President Trump as being an inspiration… what we have to understand is that Trump can also become a deflection point… we’re again not getting to what the crux of the problem is," says Imam @KLatif@ICNYU.
