The symbol sprayed in red caused alarm among the clergy and believers in Novi Pazar, the Diocese of Raska and Prizren said on its official website.

Having in mind that so far there has been no writing of Islamic symbols on our Christian sanctities and that we have good relations with the Islamic community in this part of Serbia, we sincerely believe that this was just an isolated case and expect the Islamic community to strongly condemn this provocation, the release states.
