BANJA LUKA -- RS President Milorad Dodik says the leader of Bosnia's Muslims, Mufti Mustafa Cerić, was "the main political figure among Bosniaks (Muslims)".

The president of the Serb Republic (RS) deduced that this was "leading toward a creation of a Sharia state".
"I have nothing against Bosniaks and Islam, I respect freedom of religion, but it is the desire of the Islamic Community in Bosnia-Herzegovina to direct political processes in the country that is completely unacceptable," he said.
The president added that this community was attacking the RS and him personally, "to which I have a duty to react, as president and politician".
This was Dodik's response to announcements that came from the Islamic Community (IZ) in Bosnia-Herzegovina, that they would send a proposal to embassies of Islamic countries to declare him persona non-grata for his alleged activity to "spread Islamophobia".
"The IZ statement is a political pamphlet of the lowest kind. It's proof that Mustafa Cerić is the leading political figure among Bosniaks, which is one step toward creating a Sharia state," Dodik concluded.
