Bosnia’s Chief Imam Calls On Young Muslims To Resist Radical Islamification

SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) — Bosnia’s chief imam calls on young Muslims to stick to the centuries-long tolerant version of Islam and resist efforts of radicals to change that.

During the annual speech on Muslim holiday Eid el Fitr, imam Husein Kavazovic said that young people are exposed to “unknown and distant teachings presented to them as Islam and accompanied by questionable arguments.” Muslims from the Middle East often criticize those in Bosnia as being too liberal and try to “correct” them mostly over the internet.

So far 188 Bosnian Muslims went to fight in Syria; 50 of them died and 47 returned. Those still in Syria continue to urge Muslims in Bosnia to kill Christians and liberal Muslims alike, including the head imam.
