This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Bosnian genocide in Srebrenica.
On Saturday 11th July, Imam Sejad Mekić was invited to the Cambridge Guildhall to attend their remembrance event. A candle was lit outside Great St Mary’s Church and at the Mosque, remembering the 8,000+ Muslim men and boys who were murdered in the worst atrocity on European soil since the Second World War.
The Cambridge Mayor Cllr Russ McPherson and Mayoress Carole McPherson also visited the Mosque to commemorate the anniversary.
Imam Sejad Mekić said: “I would like to extend my sincere thanks to the Cambridge Mayor Cllr Russ McPherson, the Mayoress Carole McPherson, and Cllr Anna Smith for organising this event and for the kind invitation to attend.”
