The mass murderer in New Zealand was reportedly an Australian.

The Daily Mail reported:
The man accused of murdering 49 worshipers at a mosque in New Zealand has been identified as a 28-year-old Australian who seemingly spent up to seven years traveling the world and became obsessed with far-right and Neo-Nazi ideology.
Brenton Tarrant will appear in Christchurch District Court charged with murder on Saturday, accused of storming a mosque in Christchurch and opening fire with a semi-automatic shotgun and a rifle on about 100 defenseless people attending Friday prayers.
The Daily Mail reported about his several trips abroad, including Pakistan last year.
In a previous Facebook message about a trip to Pakistan on Facebook, he wrote: ‘an incredible place filled with the most earnest, kindhearted and hospitable people in the world,‘ The Sydney Morning Herald reported.
‘The beauty of hunza and nagar valley in autumn cannot be beat,’ he stated.
The fact that Tarrant recently visited Pakistan is interesting, especially since he spoke so highly of Pakistan in recent Facebook posts.
The mosques that he targeted in New Zealand were Bangladeshi mosques. It is well known that Pakistan and Bangladesh are two Muslim nations that do not get along. The DailyTimes reported in 2016:
But if we look at foreign relations of Pakistan and Bangladesh of the past few years, it seems that they have worsened. Both states have also withdrawn their diplomatic missions and Pakistan also avoided attending the SAARC Sanitation Conference, which was held in Dhaka this year. The bilateral trade of Pakistan and Bangladesh is also not very significant. Statistics show that Pakistan’s export to Bangladesh in 2014 have been of $684 million and Pakistan import value remained $54.8 million.
The Government of Pakistan has never tried to thaw relations with Bangladesh. No significant action from diplomats or state officials has been taken to improve the relationship, while India has taken advantage of this situation and improved its ties with Bangladesh on all levels. Mutual cooperation is the reason why India and Bangladesh’s economies are the leading economies of the South Asian region. Pakistan, on the other hand, has lagged behind due to its sour relations with regional states. If this situation keeps on going, Pakistan would suffer.
Muslims in Bangladesh condemned the New Zealand mosque shootings –

Why did the New Zealand killer go to Pakistan and why did he target mosques after such a wonderful experience? We may never know.
