Llubjana's first mosque

The Slovenian weekly Mladian reprinted the Muhammad cartoons early in February. President Janez Drnovsek quickly apologised to the Muslims and calmed down the situation, writes Manca Poglijen. The country's Muslim leaders consequently called for restraint. At the same time, Llubjana's municipal authorities finally "decided, after 37 years, on the site for Slovenia's first mosque... This was a big step towards recognising the Muslim community in Slovenia... Slovenia's Muslims have been waiting for their own mosque since 1969, when they first filed their application." Around 47,000 Muslims live in Slovenia, making Islam the country's second most important religion.
