On the occasion of Ashura day, or Noah's meal day, Inter-religious Council in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Hikmet Publishing in Sarajevo on Tuesday organized the event in which they shared 3,000 portions of Noah's meal.
Under the slogan "We are all on the same boat", members of these two associations shared this traditional meal to passers in front of the Cathedral in Sarajevo.
They offered 3,000 portions. In next few days they will continue sharing 6,000 portions in other cities in the country.

Responding to repeated arguments about the integration of Muslims in Europe, a group of scholars and professors have met in Stuttgart to discuss the model of Islam in Bosnia-Herzegovina which accommodated morals of democracy and better interfaith understanding for centuries.
"For one thing, Islam has long been practiced there in a secular environment and in a secular state,” Armina Omerika, Islam scholar at the University of Bochum in western Germany, told Deusche Welle on Friday, November 25.
