As part of the Muslims March Against Terrorism, some 60 imams stopped on the stairs of the Bourse (Stock Exchange) in Brussels at 11:00 on Monday in front of a crowd of onlookers that was just as large in number, according to the police.
The initiative aims to condemn the attacks committed in the name of Islam. One man disrupted the event. He was restrained and dismissed but not arrested, according to Ilse Van de Keere, spokesperson for the Brussels-Ixelles police.
Speeches were made on the stairs. Imam Hassen Chalghoumi, president of the French Imams Conference and co-organiser of the march, thanked Interior Minister Jan Jambon for his presence and support. He said that the terrorists "have sullied Islam and Muslims." The imams reminded that, according to Islam, the man who kills an innocent man, kills all mankind.
