The snooker players observed one-minute silence and wore posters having the picture of New Zealand’s Prime Minister during the ongoing 44th National Snooker Championship at Karachi Gymkhana on Friday.
The Pakistan Billiards and Snooker Association (PBSA) had decided to pay tribute to New Zealand’s PM for taking bold steps against terrorism. She stood beside the Muslim community who suffered from huge loss during the terrorist attack on the Mosque in Christchurch on March 15. The incident took the lives of 50 Muslims.
The president of PBSA Munawwar Hussain Sheikh said that the incident in New Zealand took worthy lives and they are standing with the families of lost souls.
“This initiative has been taken just to respect the people who lost their lives in a terrorist attack,” he said.
It is pertinent to mention here that the Karachi Gymkhana is hosting the National Snooker Championship which is featuring 54 players.
