Carsijska mosque in Bosanska Dubica was damaged again today.
“During the day, we learned that a window was broken and the facade damaged at several places on the Carsija mosque, which we plan to open in the summer. We reported the case to the competent authorities, who carried out the investigation and as we learned from them, the benches in the main street were damaged during the night,” said Chief Imam Safet Beganovic.
This is not the first attack on the Carsijska mosque in this city. Attacks and verbal abuse in the area around this mosque are common. The last attack occurred in October last year.
Mayor Radenko Reljic condemned the attack and offered to repair the damage caused by the municipality.
The mosque was built in the early 17th century. The yard of the mosque was declared a national monument of Bosnia-Herzegovina. It was demolished at the beginning of the aggression in BiH in 1992 and rebuilt and opened on 10 August 2003, Radio Sarajevo news portal reports.
