A video of New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern talking to a young Muslim boy who invited her to join Islam has gone viral.

Tell MAMA, a British organization that monitors Islamophobic incidents, revealed that almost all cases that have been recorded comprised of "language, symbols or actions" linked to the Christchurch terrorist attacks.

"This is just the beginning of the work we need to do", she said in a press conference. But questions need to be answered around whether or not this was the activity of an individual that we could or should have known about.

Speaking to media on Monday afternoon, Ardern said Cabinet had agreed that a Royal Commission was the most appropriate way to look into the attack and whether it could have been prevented.

Ardern reiterated her believe it should not be aired.
