He added that The World Bosniak Congress was an umbrella organization of all the Bosniaks in the world.
The mufti explained that Bosniaks would request to have their representative in the UN in accordance with the World Jewish Congress model.
“Jews got their seat in the UN because they had survived the Holocaust. We survived genocide and we have the right to have our own World Congress and our seat in the UN,” Zukorlić stressed.
He announced that the Bosniak National Foundation in Sarajevo would be formed in the next few days and that it would “consolidate financial strength of Bosniak businessmen”.
The mufti added that “Bosniaks also need a Bosniak national university that will be founded in Sarajevo in the next period”.
He supported Islamic Community in Bosnia-Herzegovina Chief Mufti Mustafa Cerić’s proposal to embassies of the Islamic countries in Sarajevo to deny their hospitality to Republic of Srpska (RS) President Milorad Dodik.
Zukorlić said that “this needs to put an end to anti-Muslim activities of this man and his mentors in Belgrade who do not hide their animosity toward Muslims, Bosniaks and Islam in general”.
