North Macedonia group complains over Muslim leader’s remarks

In a rare move, the Macedonian Helsinki Committee on Tuesday accused religious leader Sulejman Rexhepi of inciting “hatred, discord, and intolerance.” It quoted him as describing Macedonians as “wild animals” due to their lack of a genuine national identity.

About a third of the country’s 2.1 million people are Muslims, most from the country’s ethnic Albanian minority.

There was no immediate reaction to the request by North Macedonia’s Interior Ministry or Rexhepi’s office./
