Christchurch Call's "natural transition" allows for greater flexibility and value

Changes to the Christchurch Call are being welcomed by the Muslim community. 

The initiative's becoming a charitable foundation and will no longer rely on taxpayer funding. 

It will continue its mission to reduce online extremism but is no longer linked to the governments of New Zealand or France, which founded it in 2019. 

The Federation of Islamic Associations NZ chair Abdur Razzaq told Andrew Dickens that the government isn’t pulling their support, but rather it was a natural transition for the organisation. 

He said that it's not about whether the new structure is better, but rather what services it can provide now that it couldn’t before.
