A Pakistani man who died trying to tackle the gunman during the Christchurch mosque attack has been honoured with Pakistan's highest civilian award for bravery. Naeem Rashid threw himself at the gunman, who had already shot his 21-year-old son, an act that saved lives at the Al Noor Mosque on Deans Ave. He's just the fifth person to be honoured with the Nishan-e-Shujaat. His wife Ambreen and 19-year-old son Abdullah revieved the honour on his behalf this weekend and Abdullah spoke with Indira about that this morning.
