Banner No God but Allah Removed from Russian Mosque

Following an order of the local procuracy office, a banner with the Koran quote Theres No God but Allah was removed from a wall of the only mosque in the Russian city of Krasnoyarsk. It happened after TV showed a number of videos about dissatisfaction of the local citizens caused by the content of the banner.
      Orthodox are sure that this kind of quotes, if posted outside mosques, is derogation from rights of followers of other religions.
      At the same time representatives of the local Muslim community claim that the banner with a quote from the Koran was only supposed to remind people of Gods existence and that calling Islam the right path in no way derogates from rights of anyone, referring to Russia being a free country.
      There are 50 Orthodox churches and one mosque in Krasnoyarsk city.
