MOSQUE, CHURCH AND CATHOLIC CHAPPEL IN SREBRENICA

Mixed marriages are not helpful for the avoidance of conflict. This is a common attitude which has been expressed by Muslim representative Damir Peštalić and orthodox priest Zeljko Teofilović.

During our visit to religious places we set the question of whether mixed marriage between persons of Islamic and Orthodox religion can help in solving the conflict that exists in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and especially in Srebrenica. This solution is unacceptable for the both and they believe that children in those marriages are the biggest victims with a lot of suspended questions.

Anyway, the religious representatives are available for meetings, discussions, and they are also open for joint actions.

“Chetniks can not be Orthodox, as well as Muslims can not be terrorists,” are the words of Muslim representative which refers to the stereotypes that are current in today’s society. Orthodox priest added that people who are believers can not feel hatred towards members of other religion.
Is this common position of all people?

A third party, the Catholic Church in Srebrenica and their spokesperson says: “It was not our war!”
