KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 16 — Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad today received a courtesy call by two victims of the random shooting incident in Christchurch, New Zealand at his office in Perdana Putra, Putrajaya.

Through the Prime Minister's official Twitter and Facebook postings, the victims, Rahimi Ahmad and Mohd Nazril Hisham Omar were present with their family members.

“In the meeting, both victims shared their feelings of not being vindictive over the incident and were grateful to the support given by the people and government of New Zealand. In fact they see the people in the country showing interest in understanding and learning Islam,” according to the postings attached with four pictures of the meeting.
