On Tuesday March 22nd 2016, a terrorist attack with multiple blasts shook Belgium’s capital, Brussels, killing and injuring dozens at Zaventem Airport and in the subway.
On March 23rd, ISKCON European Office of Communications issued the following statement:
[ belgium ] [ brussels ] [ terror ] [ terrorism ]
ISKCON deplores the atrocious violence and terror recently committed in Brussels. The deranged persons who committed such acts do not represent any bonafide spiritual tradition but on the contrary only represent and practice hatred, madness, envy, violence and terror.
Our prayers and thoughts go out to the victims and their families who suffered these tragic acts of terror in Belgium. May all faiths and reasonable people stand together to condemn such violence and terror, and to promote peace, dialogue and respect.
