Meet Muhammad Rafiq – A hero takes down heavily armed mosque gunman before he can kill anyone
Yesterday, when a terrorist tried to carry out Christchurch-style massacre in a Norway Mosque, this 65 year old jumped on him, held him in a chokehold & sat on him till police arrived.
A witness said of Mr Rafiq: “He is a hero. Had he not stopped this terrorist, he would have died.”
“He put his finger in my eye,” Rafiq told the media.
The police have charged the suspect with the murder of his 17-year-old stepsister who was found dead at a separate location.
The suspect has not yet been named, but police have described him as a white Norwegian citizen of “around 20 years old”, according to BBC. He was said to be “from the area” where the mosque attack took place, in the town of Baerum.
This is Muhammad Rafiq. Know his name.
