Mufti of Belgrade Muhamed Jusufspahić says Mufti Muamer Zukorlić's decision to take part in the presidential election showed that ours is "a free country".
"Is it normal for someone who urges civil disobedience to be a presidential candidate? Will we have candidatures from bishops and rabbis next?," Jusufspahić stated, but noted that these were "issues of lesser importance that must be answered by the state, rather than by a mufti".
"To me, the essential issue is - who am I supposed to complain to over the abuse of faith and cloth? On the other hand, former Evangelical pastor Joachim Gauck recently became president in Germany, and Germany is not a poorly ordered country," said Jusufspahić.
