Stabbed Christchurch womans funeral held

Although this stabbed Christchurch womans funeral held is long over, still nothing is published on who or why this tragedy happened. This follows London’s trends of record knife crime, with all of the same ingredients.

And daily, someone is being stabbed in Auckland.

Quran 9:29 Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture – [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled.

Quran 8:12 [Remember] when your Lord inspired to the angels, “I am with you, so strengthen those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved, so strike [them] upon the necks and strike from them every fingertip.”

This from NZ Herald:

A funeral service has been held in Christchurch for the woman killed while walking home from work in broad daylight on Saturday afternoon.

Friends, family and workmates of Laisa Maraia Waka Tunidau, in her 50s, gathered together to sing hymns and share testimonies about their loved one last night.

The service was held at the St John Moraia Fijian Methodist Church, in Christchurch, and was live-streamed on Facebook; with family members saying Tunidau’s body will be returned to her homeland of Fiji today.

It is understood the mother-of-four will be laid to rest in her husband’s village on Saturday – a week after the she was fatally stabbed metres away from her home in the suburb of Sockburn in Christchurch.

Eulogies were given by Tunidau’s colleagues, family, church community and an emotional Nemani Tunidau – her husband – who looked down at the ground before speaking.

Nemani Tunidau spoke of the sadness their family was going through and spoke of his children.

A representative from a retirement village in Ilam, where Tunidau worked as a cleaner, also spoke at the service.

The representative said colleagues and residents alike had shared stories over Tunidau over the past few days.

“[She was] quiet, friendly, kind, respectful, grateful and always, always smiling,” the staffer said.

Residents at the retirement home had also shared stories and paid tribute to a woman who showed care for those around her; with one resident describing Tunidau as being more than what her job description was.

“In the early mornings, Laisa brought new energy with that beautiful smile and always greeted staff with her ‘good morning’ and asking how we all are.

“Laisa had a beautiful soul … staff always felt positive vibes when working with Laisa. She was a very proud mum, a loving wife and member of the community.”

A Givealittle page set up to help the grieving family has reached just over $58,000 in donations.

A 37-year-old man has been charged with murder and has been remanded in custody.
