Parliament, on Monday, observed a minute silence for 50 Muslims who were shot and killed in Christ Church city in New Zealand on 15 March 2019 by one Brenton Harrison Tarrant, an Australian citizen.

This follows a statement made by Hon Ben Abdullah Banda, MP for Banda and Chairman of the Committee on Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs of Parliament on the New Zealand attack.

Hon Ben Abdullah Banda noted that "radicalization, populism, xenophobia, extremism and terrorism are fast eating into the global fabric", hence the need for a "united effort" by all people worldwide "to fight the menace".

He also observed that global peace appears to be on the brink of collapse as no one seems safe and secure as a result of terrorism.

Sharing his thoughts on the subject, the Member of Parliament for Tamale Central, Hon Inusah Fuseini, said "any form of religious intolerance must not be tolerated" anywhere in the world.
