European Islam in light of the Bosnian Experience
The status and identity of Islam and Muslims in Europe has been discussed widely. Many have claimed that Bosnia represents a good example of ‘Euroislam’, a fusion of both European and Islamic identities. Imam Asim Hafiz will interview Mufti Hadis ef. Pašalić, the Mufti to the Bosnian Armed Forces, about what it means to be a European Muslim from his own personal experiences as a solider against the aggression in the 1990s as well as now, as the head of Islamic Affairs in the Bosnian Armed Forces.
