A bearded Aaron Tahuhu, wearing a brown robe and jandals, looks out over green fields near his home.
In years to come, he hopes to look out on desert sands near Mecca.
Tahuhu is one of Christchurch's fundamentalist Muslims
. To some, he fits the description of an extremist.
A member of the Aotearoa Maori Muslim Association, he openly supports Islamic State
and claims to be in contact with people on the front lines in the Middle Eastern conflict.
His Facebook page features articles and videos about the group and many of his friends are Muslim converts.
Tahuhu, 33, also known as Yusif Haroon Mik'eal, says the public have nothing to fear.
Yesterday, at his rural home in Belfast, he told The Press he supported Islamic State's efforts to establish an Islamic caliphate but denounced atrocities committed by some members of the group in Syria and Iraq.
"I've got no intentions of blowing anything up or going out and finding a disbeliever and beheading them in a mall or anything like that," Tahuhu said.Christchurch was host to more than a dozen people who had beliefs similar to his
, he said.
About two years ago, disillusioned with Christianity, he converted to Islam at the Christchurch mosque on Deans Ave.
