Islamic Community of Bosnia amends their  Constitution  in order to create a single Muslim  organization in Balkans, where the role of Ulema will be empowered. 

The Assembly of the Islamic Community in Bosnia and Herzegovina is finalizing a series of public hearings in the region in order to amend the Constitution platforms that will enable creation of a unified Islamic community in the former Yugoslavia and Muslim spiritual connection.

The new amendments are supported by the pro Ottoman fraction of Islamic Community in Serbia, headed by Mufti Muamer Zukorlić

Is this another Turkish attempt to penetrate and initially re -establish for the beginning  confessional neo Ottoman emporium in Serbia?

Was the Turkey given green light to reshape Balkans according to their Neo Ottoman policy?


And equally important question: what about the Islamic community OF Serbia with their leader  Mufti Jusufspahic, who’s accepted and respected among the non mMuslims in the region as well?

The Assembly of the Islamic Community in Bosnia and Herzegovina is finalizing a series of public hearings in the region in order to amend the Constitution platforms that will enable creation of a unified Islamic community in the former Yugoslavia and Muslim spiritual connection.

Few days ago a new platform gained  the support from the Islamic Community in Serbia and their controversial pro Ottoman leader Mufti Muamer Zukorlić, adopting the conclusions which supports amending the Constitution “and emphasizes the unique orientation towards the strengthening of the Islamic community and constitutional order to provide more efficient functioning of the organs”.

Edhem Bicakcic, vice president of Parliament from the BiH Federation and former Prime Minister, explains that the Constitutional Commission of the Islamic Community in Bosnia-Herzegovina established a proposal to amend the Constitution, and a new initiative of the Reis-ul-Ulema Kavazović Hussein was sent to the public discussion because of the assumption that there will be amendments to the text of the platform.

“The new Constitution strengthens the position of the ulema and establishes  different organization of Riyasat” says Bičakić.

According to him the amendment to the Islamic community Constitution would mean “the inclusion of all the Muslims in Bosnia-Herzegovina and the former Yugoslavia”, excluding Kosovo, which will be granted a ‘special status’.

The question whether this initiative will cause political issues in the relations between Serbia and Bosnia, as well as within the BiH , Bičakčić responds  that BiH ‘doesn’t mind’.

“We are only interested in the spiritual life, “said Bicakcic.

Safet Halilovic, a professor at the Faculty of Political Sciences and former official of the Party for Bosnia and Herzegovina, said that the change of the Constitution in a good thing, only if  it is not abused and instrumentalized.

“It all depends on how the things will be set up and applied. In a spiritual sense, it should have positive repercussions for spiritual connection, tolerance and reconciliation. As for the doctrine, Islam has universal character, anyway ” said Halilovic.

He recalls that even the establishment of the Islamic community of  Bosnia and Hercegovina in 1992.  was problematic for many reasons and that it was for political reasons only. “
