Muslim Expo took place for the third time in Antwerp last weekend. The expo consisted of a lifestyle fair for Muslims, comprising of a few stalls, panel discussions and performances.
Far-right group Vlaams Belang disagreed entirely and protested the fair. Their leader Filip Dewinter called it:
- Hijabi Muslimah Student voted and Named as Best-Dressed
- How Would Hollywood Female Celebs Look Like, If They Wore Hijab
- Jil Love Revolution’s Campaign For Gaza-Palestine
An apartheid Islamic exchange where segregation is preached instead of integration.
They want only one thing – to expand the pillars of Islam. If you want to know how young people are radicalized, I advise you to visit this exhibition.
Forty protesters stood outside the exhibition center with placards on Saturday, some of whom handed out pork sausages.
Zakia Belkhiri, a young Muslim woman, decided the best way to counter-protest was to exhibit a cornerstone of western culture.
She took a series of selfies in front and among the protesters.
