On March 15, 2019, Tauseef Quazi watched in horror from Hastings as the news of the Christchurch mosque shootings emerged.
Tauseef, who lives in the Hawke's Bay city, is the son of the founder of Masjid Al Noor in Christchurch, the first mosque targeted by a gunman on that fateful day.
The gunman allegedly started shooting about 1.40pm, during prayers, and spent about six minutes at Al Noor Mosque on Deans Ave before driving off towards Linwood Islamic Centre in a rampage that would claim the lives of 51 people.
Tauseef was in Hastings as he saw the events unfold and the body count rise at the mosque which his father Hanif Quazi helped build.
"My Dad came to New Zealand from Pakistan in 1967 to do his PhD, he built Masjid Al Noor in 1985, and he saw the shootings from his home in Palmerston North.
"He was quite attached to the mosque, he helped built it, and he was quite hurt. He knew some families of the victims.
His Dad's attachment to the mosque left him "visualising every corner in which the worshipper could escape", other media have previously reported.
"My first thought was 'no, it can't be. Not here in New Zealand','" Tauseef said.
The disbelief stayed, joined by feelings of hurt, and pain that his community could be terrorised in a place he called home.
"How can a person have so much hate to kill this many people," he said.
Tauseef has always viewed New Zealand as home even though he only moved to the country in 2005.
"After my Dad built the mosque in 1985, he decided to move back to Pakistan," he said.
"He missed his extended family. Me and my younger siblings were born in Pakistan, we finished our schooling in Pakistan and came to New Zealand for university studies and work."
When Tauseef came to New Zealand he was based in Auckland and had to travel to Palmerston North for work as a mechanical design engineer.
He realised the travel took far too long and re-located to Hawke's Bay in 2016.
"New Zealand is home to us, we have been here for a while and my older siblings were born here," he said.
"I felt hurt with what had happened to the country I love and call home, post-shooting, but if I wanted to be anywhere this time, it would have to be NZ.
"This is where I belong, and nothing can change that."
Tauseef is proud of how the act of terror failed in its ultimate goal, instead uniting New Zealand and Hawke's Bay with its Muslim communities.
"The way the people reacted, and how the Government handled the situation, made me feel loved, cared for and safe," he said.
"I believe the positive from this event is that it has brought the Muslim community closer to the greater Kiwi community."
His father and mosque founder Hanif was flown to Christchurch by the Government following the shootings to be with the families of the victims.
"He went straightaway and he will be there at the one-year commemorations of the shootings," he said.
Tauseef will be at the mosque shooting commemorations in Hawke's Bay. He'll be there, walking together with this community, into a future without hate.
