A far-right Spanish group targeted a mosque in Madrid on Monday in a “protest” following the terrorist attacks in Brussels, which caused the deaths of 31 people and left over 200 people injured.

According to Spanish media, the far-right group Hogar Social Madrid (Madrid Social Home) were holding signs, asking: “Today Brussels, tomorrow Madrid?”.

The mayor of Madrid condemned the Islamophobic attack, stating “We are fighting together against terrorism.”

City officials believe that peaceful “coexistence” of representatives of all religions is essential for “the safety of the city.”

In a statement published by The Local, the imam of the M-30 mosque Hussam Khoja condemned the reactions of extremists who tried “to attack our great mosque and cause damage to it.”

In the same statement, Khoja condemned the terrorist bombings that targeted Brussels, saying “What happened in Brussels on March 22nd is unacceptable. Nor is it accepted within our logic or religion to commit such nefarious attacks.”
