The Chairman of the Kashmir Council EU, Ali Raza Syed, has released the following statement following the attacks in Brussels:
'Our hearts, thoughts, and prayers are with the victims and their families on this shocking day. We absolutely condemn these monstrous attacks. They are targeting innocent people, in a peaceful city that hasn't known anything like this since the second world war.
We shall not let these instigators of terror break our spirits in Belgium, nor derail the peace and cooperation that has existed for so long in Europe. We must let the attacks make us kinder to each other, and stronger in our solidarity. We shall stand together, and with unity we will defeat the forces of evil and the enemies of humanity.'
