The brother of a terrorist involved in the March 2016 Brussels bombing that killed 32 people has just struck gold at the European takewondo championship.
A different kind of a fighter, he will represent Belgium at the Olympics! This goes to show how a generous and inclusive Belgium has not ostracised family members of a terrorist who harmed the country.
This is not a stray instance, as even some of Osama bin Laden’s close relatives, including children, live happily in the U.S.
But how reciprocal these people will be is certain to be in a cloud of uncertainty!
