Bosnian imam celebrates coronavirus cancelling a Pride march

An imam in Bosnia has attracted criticism after he praised coronavirus for cancelling Sarajevo’s second Pride march, after organisers cancelled it due to the virus. “We emphasize that we are postponing the march due to the epidemiological situation, but we draw attention to a number of problems that are the reality of the organization of LGBTQI public events,” the Pride’s organisers said in a statement.

In a Facebook post on Thursday (6 August), Muhamed ef. Velic, the imam of the Ferhadija mosque in Sarajevo, wrote that “in every misfortune and tragedy there is a grain of happiness, goodness and beauty” following the announcement of the Pride’s cancellation.
