CHRISTCHURCH: ‘National Scarf Day’ will be observed in New Zealand on Friday to show solidarity with the victims of Christchurch mosque attacks.

The organiser of "Scarves in Solidarity" has urged Kiwis, especially women, to wear a scarf and stand with the Muslim community.

On social media, this idea is getting very positive response. Thomas says that this act of solidarity will show that women of all religions and races are together against this heinous act.
