Naeem Rashid is being hailed as the hero who tried his best to overpower the shooter during a mass shooting at Al Noor mosque at Christchurch New Zealand.
The shooter has live-streamed the whole incident in which Naeem was clearly seen fighting with the gunman although he didn’t have any weapon for his protection. Unfortunately, our super hero dies at the hospital as he was having severe injuries during his fight with the shooter.
According to the Foreign Office report, there were nine Pakistani nationals who were killed in that attack on Friday.
