Pastor of the Presbyterian Church in Garden City, Reverend Denise Pass organised the rally after she heard of the “terrorism plot”

When I heard this tragic news, it came to my mind that we – as members of this community and as Christians – should support and protect the local Muslim community,” she told Al Jazeera.

Further, Pass said: “The actions of few racist individuals should not be taken to represent the whole community, just as the Muslim community should not negatively labelled or held responsible for the actions of the very few terrorists who happened to be Muslims.”
