Published by: Rijaset Islamske zajednice u Bosni i Hercegovini
Summary/Abstract: In the criminal crusade on the independent state of Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina from 1992 – 1995, not even the most valuable zero-category monuments of the Islamic architecture were spared. 1437 edifices of Islamic architecture were destroyed, out of which 1114 were mosques. 614 mosques were completely destroyed and 307 mosques were damaged. 218 masjids, 69 kuttabs and 39 funerary monuments were demolished. The destruction of the Islamic architecture edifices was systematic, planned and organized. Moreover, the ultimate goal was to destroy the Bosnian multiethnic and multicultural society by actually destroying its landmarks.
