A Māori historian says the sort of racist hate speech promoted by alleged Christchurch mosque shooter Brenton Tarrant was what Māori went to war to stop.

Manuka Henare says the killing of 50 people at the two Christchurch mosques on Friday made him think it was as if Adolf Hitler had won.

"And I recall the day in history when Ngāpuhi and other iwi declared war on fascism just ahead of the New Zealand Government and our leaders at this time were adamant that this kind of thinking does not fit Māoritanga," he says.

Dr Henare says a decade ago he was part of interfaith dialogues between church leaders from countries around Asia Pacific, and he believes those meetings should have continued as a way to promote racial and religious tolerance.
