Islam Bosnia - - - - 1600 Malcom, Noel. Bosnia: A Short History. Washington Square, NY: New York University Press (1994); pg. 54. "The process by which Bosnia gained a majority population of Muslims thus took the best part of 150 years. In the light of the evidence accumulated so far, it is clear that some of the oldest myths about the Islamicization of Bosnia can be rejected. The idea that there was any sort of mass settlement during this period of Muslims from outside Bosnia must be dismissed: though the Ottomans did settle some Turkic peoples in other parts of the Balkans, the defters confirm that no such policy was ever applied to Bosnia. "
Islam Bosnia 75,000 - - - 1624 Malcom, Noel. Bosnia: A Short History. Washington Square, NY: New York University Press (1994); pg. 54. "...the Albanian priest and apostolic visitor Peter Masarechi, sent a more carefully researched report in 1624; unfortunately, the figures he gave for Bosnia have been misconstrued by almost all the historians who have cited them. What he actually reported was that there were 150,000 Catholics, roughly 75,000 Eastern Orthodox, and 450,000 Muslims. "
Islam Bosnia - - - - 1626 Malcom, Noel. Bosnia: A Short History. Washington Square, NY: New York University Press (1994); pg. 53-54. "From the early 17th century we do have some accounts by visiting Catholic priests who compiled detailed reports for Rome; but their figures must have been based on hearsay, their use of the term 'Bosnia' was elastic, and they were evidently keen to emphasize either the numerical strength of the Catholic Church or the degree of oppression it suffered. One such visitor gave a total of 250,000 Catholics for the whole of Bosnia in 1626, and added that the number of Muslims was larger than the total number of Christians. "
Islam Bosnia 925,926 - - - 1939 Malcom, Noel. Bosnia: A Short History. Washington Square, NY: New York University Press (1994); pg. 192. "Altogether 75,000 Bosnian Muslims are thought to have died in the [Second World] war: at 8.1% of their total population, this was a higher proportion than that suffered by the Serbs (7.3%), or by any other people except the Jews and the Gypsies. "
Islam Bosnia 2,000,000 - - - 1985 Malcom, Noel. Bosnia: A Short History. Washington Square, NY: New York University Press (1994); pg. 222. "...1980s... But even 'hundreds' of militants could have little effect on a population of two million Muslims, the absolute majority of whom did not think of themselves as religious believers and only followed some of the practices of Islam as a matter of culture and tradition. "
Islam Bosnia - - - - 1985 Malcom, Noel. Bosnia: A Short History. Washington Square, NY: New York University Press (1994); pg. 222. "For many rural Muslims and the vast majority of urban ones, being a Muslim was reduced to a set of cultural traditions: 'Muslim names, circumcision, baklava and the celebration of Ramazan Bajram [the feast which marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadan], getting a godparent to cut a one-year-old child's hair, a preference for tiny coffett cups without handles, a sympahy for spiders and various other traditional practices, the origins of which are frequently unknown to those who practice them. "
Islam Bosnia - 44.00% - - 1990 Malcom, Noel. Bosnia: A Short History. Washington Square, NY: New York University Press (1994); pg. 222-223. "When the votes were counted in the elections of December 1990... These proportions (41% Muslim, 35% Serb, 20% Croat) roughly matched those of the population as a whole (44, 31, and 17 per cent respectively). "

An estimated 200,000 Bosnian Muslims have been killed (out of a pre-war Bosnian total population of some 4 million).
Islam Bosnia 1,980,000 44.00% - - 1991 Black, Eric. Bosnia: Fractured Region. Minneapolis: Lerner Publications Co. (1999); pg. 14. "In the country's last census--in 1991--44 percent of Bosnia's 4.5 million people identified themselves as Muslims, 31 percent as Serbs, and 17 percent as Croats... Neither does Bosnia have a dominant religion. Bosnian Serbs are mostly followers of the Serbian Orthodox Church, Bosnian Croats are mostly Roman Catholics, and Bosnian Muslims follow the Islamic faith. In most contexts, the term Muslim is a religious description, not an ethnic one. Most Arabs and Turks, many Asians, and some Africans follow Islam, although they represent different ethnic groups. In Bosnia, however, the term Muslim represents both a religion and an ethnicity, separating that group fromthe Bosnian Serbs and Bosnian Croats. Many Bosnian Muslims, in fact, do not actively practice the Islamic religion. "

Islam Bosnia - - - - 1997 Udovicki, Jasminka & James Ridgeway (editors). Burn this House: The Making and Unmaking of Yugoslavia; Durham & London: Duke University Press (1997); pg. 22. "Islam became the dominant religion and thousands converted. It has long been held that the conversion took place en masse, primarily by the adherents of the Bosnian Church, to reinforce their difference from their Catholic and Orthodox neighbors. "
Islam Bosnia - central 1,660 0.85% - - 1469 C.E. Malcom, Noel. Bosnia: A Short History. Washington Square, NY: New York University Press (1994); pg. 52. "The best source of information is the ottoman 'defters', tax-registers which recorded property-ownership & categorized people by their religion... The earliest defters, from 1468/9, show that Islam had established only a toehold in the first few years after conquest: in the eare of east & central Bosnia which they cover, 37,125 households were Christian and only 332 were Muslim. Assuming an average of 5 people per household, this gives a figure of 185,625 Christians; separately listed were also nearly 9000 individual Christian bachelors & widows. "
Islam Bosnia - central 21,734 12.28% - - 1485 C.E. Malcom, Noel. Bosnia: A Short History. Washington Square, NY: New York University Press (1994); pg. 52. "The next defter to have been fully analysed covers the sandzak of Bosnia for 1485; it shows that Islam was not beginning to make significant progress. There were 30,552 Christian households, 2491 individual Christian bachelors and widows, 4134 Muslim households and 1064 Muslim bachelors. Again assuming 5 people per household, this gives a total of 155,251 Christians and 21,734 Muslims. "
Islam Bosnia - central 84,675 46.33% - - 1525 C.E. Malcom, Noel. Bosnia: A Short History. Washington Square, NY: New York University Press (1994); pg. 53. "...the defters of the 1520s yield total figures for the sandzak of Bosnia of 98,096 Christians and 84,675 Muslims. Since we know that there was no large-scale Muslim migration into Bosnia during that period, the figure must represent conversions of Bosnian Christians to Islam. "
Islam Bosnia - northeastern - - - - 1524 C.E. Malcom, Noel. Bosnia: A Short History. Washington Square, NY: New York University Press (1994); pg. 53. "After the process of conquest was completed in the 1520s, Islimicization proceeded a little faster. The Dominican historian Father Mandic claims that there was--for the first time--a delibertae campaign of persecution against Catholics, forcing them to convert to Islam, in the period 1516-24. The most detailed study of north-eastern Bosnia during this period, by Adem Handzic, does not support Mandic's claim, however--though it does show that many Catholics emigrated from the area, and that five out of the ten Franciscan monasteries there ceased to operate. Handzic also demonstrate that catholics were more likely, understandably enough, to convert to Islam the further away they lived from Catholic churches. "

During this time, many Bosnians converted to Islam, the religionof the Ottoman rulers. "; pg. 72: "In the Ottoman era, with the introduction of Islam, many Christians found reason to convert. Motives for conversion ranged from escaping Catholic persecution of the native Bogomil Christian sect, to retaining rank in the local nobility, to escaping taxes placed on the Christian peasantry. About 44% of Bosnians today are Muslim. "

Sufism (mystical Islam) also became established in Bosnia. Islam in modern Bosnia evolved into a tolerant form with some practices diverging sharply from what is considered orthodoxy in other Islam countries. Many Bosnians treat their religion as many Americans do theirs--something observed only on the Sabbath and major holidays. Fundamentalism was discouraged both by the Yugoslavian government and the religious community itself. "
