Turkish media is reporting that this year’s annual Muslim Fair in Brussels has attracted thousands of visitors. According to the report:
A fair organized by Muslims in Belgian capital Brussels has attracted thousands of visitors at its stands mainly theming clothes, accessories, halal food and natural cosmetics as well as Rabia movement (a civil movement protesting against the military coup in Egypt) and resistance against Syria’s brutal regime. Organizers think the fair will reach a total visitors number of 25 thousand by the end of tomorrow, the final day of the fair.
The Muslim Fair aiming the struggle against Islamaphobia and intercultural dialogue is being held at Brussels’s historic Tour & Taxi Cultural Centre.
The program for this year’s Fair indicates that numerous Muslim Brotherhood figures were scheduled to speak including:
- Hassan Iquioussen (leader in the Union des Organisations Islamiques de France)
Also scheduled to speak were two Salafi figures- Abdullah al Mosleh, Chairman of the International Commission on Scientific Signs in Qur’an & Sunnah in Makkah and Omar Abdelkafy, an Egyptian cleric who recently made controversial remarks about the 911 attacks.
The GMBDW first reported on the Brussels fair in October 2012 when we described it as the first Islamic expo in Brussels, Belgium that was organized by the Belgian Muslim Brotherhood and addressed by important leaders of the Global Muslim Brotherhood as well as by the Vice-President of the European Parliament. In November 2014, we reported that Kuwaiti Muslim Brotherhood leader Tariq Suwaidan had been banned from attending that year’s Fair.
Omar Abdelkafy was not there. It’s place was taken by Saudi Abdullah Sanaan. Syria Charity, islamic relief Belgium and Aksahum were there.
