DISGRACE: Orthodox chapel in Pristina turned into public toilet
- It is hard and difficult to understand that in the main city of Kosovo and Metohija, Christian objects are used as public toilets in 21st century - bishop Teodosije
Recently restored and cleaned cemetery chapel in Pristina has been turned to public toilet and junkyard, and most of the Orthodox graves have overgrown in weeds, announced today the Diocese of Raska and Prizren.
That kind of conditions exist because the cemetery is allegedly taken cared of by municipality communal service and the payed security guard, said from the Diocese of Raska and Prizren.
- During the visit of the Orthodox cemetery in Pristina, priest Sasa Mitrovic walked upon a very sad and painful image. Recently restored and cleaned cemetery chapel has been turned into has been turned to public toilet and junkyard, and most of the Orthodox graves have overgrown in weed - written in the statement.
These images show the similar situation just like in the church of Christ the Savior in the center of the city where the Diocese Raska and Prizren decided to clean their temple, and municipality Pristina reacted and sent an inspection which (whit no specific reason) stopped and banned the further cleaning of the church.
- Taking in consideration that Mitrovdan memorial is approaching and that numerous believers from Pristina will arrive, of which most are not able to live freely in their birth town and able to return to it, and they will visit the graves. Eparchy will have to organize the cleaning of both cemetery chapel and the cemetery - stated.
Eparchy is asking a question will the mayor of Pristina be ardent again to send the inspection and stop the cleaning of the temple as he as was ardent so far in doing nothing to prevent using the Christian objects in the city as toilets.
- It is a terrifying reflection of lack of culture and the absence of elementary civilized forms. Mayor of Pristina Spend Ahmeti, recently in the interview for the KIM radio said that the municipality is not in charge of checking if the religious objects are desecrated or damaged, therefore nothing is done upon the desecration or setting site in the Christ Savior church.
- However, how did Ahmeti say that municipality has the responsibility to prevent any kind of works on those object (including cleaning and whitewashing). This kind of abuse of religious freedoms present shame for Kosovo society - said Teodosije highlighting that no one can stop the Church to protect with dignity its objects that are constantly desecrated.
