Serbian Muslims breaks fast in Belgrade

With a population of 1.6 million Serbia's capital, Belgrade, is home to around 20,000 practicing Muslims, but only one purpose built mosque, established in 1575, when the Balkans was ruled by the Ottoman Empire.

On Thursday, authorities began demolition of a building used by local Muslims as place of worship, but withdrew after protests by residents, mainly members of the Roma Gypsy minority.

Here we see Serbian Muslims celebrating their Iftar outside the partially demolished mosque building, enjoying the atmosphere of unity in Ramadan.

Muslims around the world are encouraged to take part in good deeds and advise people to do good throughout the year, however, in the month of Ramadan it is especially praised.
