A Muslims page in Christchurch and Canterbury Facebook said that the man who said "Trump for New Zealand" had a shirt. The photograph shows the man standing beside two police officers in the Trump shirt.
The man was swearing and saying that the murderers of terrorists, according to the job. He also told people at the Mosque, those who still lost their friends, that we must all leave "New Zealand", he said. T
"He was there for about 15 minutes. He kicked it and tried some of the reminiscences of Ave Deans in front of the masjid."
The armed police are placed outside the mose since the attack. The police were present when the man was suffering with abuse, but he did not arrest him. A spokeswoman said officers would make the decision not to "light up" that important area.
The police were now looking for the man. The candidate may resist the conduct of behavior.
Many people have returned to the mosque because it re-opened eight days after the attack, but others are reluctant. One member of the Muslim community said that they did not want to be mentioned, that "racist abuse" from the Trump supporter appearing would be worse.
For Yasmeenah, the event was another example of New Zealand's discrimination and racism – she knew herself on the day of the attack when she was told by a man that you should say 'should you be burned.
The 17-year-old was running for prayers on Friday and was on her way to Masjid Al Noor when she began writing messages about the burning. She pulled over close to a Thailand restaurant on Riccarton Road, just around the corner from Deans Ave, and continued on.
"I had the best relatives I was inside, so I was trying to get in," she said. The police had already arrived before it stopped.
After waiting in a nearby street, Yasmeenah returned to her car. A “slim” white man who was standing near the restaurant was hitting something she was walking past, Yasmeenah said.
"I told me something nasty, then I turned around and said what you said," and then he said you should have been shot too. .
Yasmeenah was surprised. She was greatly distressed by what had happened and she did not believe what she had heard.
"I did not even think about it as I felt at that time. I was more worried about all my friends within the masjid."
People had to recognize racism and the New Zealand prejudice, said Yasmeenah.
“I just want all New Zealand people to know that racism still exists, and it will destroy me when people say it is not racism because it has been years has happened. "
