A Belgrade publisher said Saturday it had withdrawn the Serbian translation of the book Jewel of Medina by US writer Sherry Jones following protests by Muslims, dpa reported.
"We did not wish to provoke anyone and we apologize," the publisher, Beobook, said in a statement.
The book describes the Muslim Prophet Mohammed's relationship with his favourite wife, Aisha.
Serbia's Muslim community had strongly protested the publication of the book when it was announced.
They accused the publisher of desecrating Mohammed and his family.
The Serbian translation was to be the first worldwide following the publication of the book in the US.
US publisher Random House withdrew the book from the US market at the beginning of the month following protests from Muslims.
