Patience of heartbroken community is tested as police and coroners continue to gather evidence on mosque massacre
When Ara Parvin’s husband, Farid, was in a road accident several years ago and began using a wheelchair, she steadfastly cared for him. Over the years, as he grew sicker, her support grew.
On Friday the Parvins were praying at the Al Noor mosque in Christchurch when alleged terrorist Brenton Tarrant aimed his gun at Farid. Ara supported her husband for a final time, throwing herself in front of the bullets. She is among the 50 people who died in the attacks. And Farid is waiting to bury her.
