The first-ever pride march in Bosnia and Herzegovina took place last September amidst heavy security. The second one was scheduled for August 23 2020, but was cancelled by organizers, being aware of the worsening COVID-19 pandemic. “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”, organizers stated two days ago. The very same day, a prominent representative of Islamic Community in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Sarajevo-based imam Muhamed Velić, praised the news on his Facebook. “The media inform us that the homosexual parade in Sarajevo has been postponed due to the coronavirus. In every misfortune and tragedy there is also a grain of happiness, goodness and beauty. Thank Allah for everything. May dear Allah give the corona and gay parade never return to our city and country! Amen”, posted Velić who has almost 75,000 followers on Facebook
