The fallout from a canceled Gay Pride parade in Serbia might be a ban on violent political groups, the AFP reported.

Speaking on Serbian television Monday, junior justice minister Slobodan Homen said the government was considering banning “all organizations that voice threats.”

He mentioned by name the two ultranationalist groups that forced the closure of a planned September 20 Belgrade Gay Pride parade: Obraz (Honor) and Serb Popular Movement 1389.

Gay groups agreed to call off their parade after the government warned it could not guarantee the parade's safety. Insufficient security during its last parade in 2001 turned the protest into chaotic violence when extremists attacked.

But nationalists, who had cheered the decision as a defeat for “infidels and satanists,” proceeded with their anti-gay demonstration, even after officials banned all public gatherings in the center of the city.

The Associated Press reported that 46 extremists were arrested by police on Sunday.

Three foreigners were violently attacked in Belgrade, the nation's capital and largest city, in the days leading up to the anti-gay protest. The BBC reported that a Sunday attack on a 25-year-old Australian man followed an earlier attack on a 28-year-old French football fan who remains in critical condition. Up to 11 men could be charged with attempted murder for attacking three French football fans on Thursday, officials said. reported a British citizen was attacked in the city center on Thursday evening.

The site also reported that a Gay Pride event hosted by Krister Bringeus, the Swedish ambassador to Serbia, took place in the Belgrade suburbs, and drew about 50 people.

“Pride is all about the message of tolerance,” Bringeus told the crowd. “I am very sorry that Pride didn't take place. But welcome to this small Pride event.”

On Friday, Belgrade Mayor Dragan Djilas came out in favor of outlawing “groups and organizations that condone violence.”
