The Council on American-Islamic Relations said Friday that the Christchurch mosques shootings in New Zealand were done to "sow division" and said people must stand together.

They also called on President Donald Trump to condemn the attacks as a "white supremacist attack" and not one just based on hate speech.

CAIR called on Muslims across the U.S. to also not "abandon their mosques" in wake of the attack, as many are attending or were set to attend morning prayer.
