Bosniaks have reason to worry about the future of Bosnia and Herzegovina and their survival since they are threatened by ideologies that previously systematically worked on their marginalisation and annihilation, the head of BiH’s Islamic Community, Husein Kavazović, has said.
“There is a plan for Bosniaks to disappear as a people, or at least not to be a politically sovereign people, or to be reduced to a religious minority in part of the territory. The authors of this plan do not hide their intentions too much. They are looking for their opportunity, a big new global reshuffle,” Kavazović told the newspaper Ramazanske novine, whose publisher is a branch of the Islamic Community in Tuzla.
The frequent controversial statements of Croatian President Zoran Milanovic are an example of this, the mufti added.
Islamic fundamentalists exert no influence in BiH, the international community’s High Representative to BiH, Christian Schmidt, told the German Catholic Agency (KNA) on Wednesday (6 April).
There were only individual cases in connection with terror organisations such as Al-Qaeda or Islamic State, the German Christian Democrat who became BiH’s High Representative last summer, told the German Catholic news agency in an interview.
