Banja Luka, 12 April: Head of the SNSD [Alliance of Independent Social
Democrats] floor group in the Bosnia-Hercegovina parliament's House
of Representatives Drago Kalabic has said that the law banning the
burqa and the resolution condemning the genocide committed by Turkey
[Ottoman Empire] against Armenians would be adopted by the [Bosnian]
Serb Republic People's Assembly if the Bosniaks [Muslims] fail to
support it in the Bosnia-Hercegovina parliament.

"Many countries have already adopted a resolution on Turkish crimes.

We want to prove that the Bosniak side is most flagrantly abusing
the victims of Srebrenica, and to call things by their proper names.

Turkey wants to be an important political factor, so let's see how
this country has dealt with its history," Kalabic told Pres [Banja
Luka daily].

He said that the situation was the same with the burqa.

Kalabic recalled that many European countries had banned the veil
for security reasons.

"Their security agencies say that they cannot wage a proper struggle
against terrorism if they cannot identify an individual at any given
moment. If Turkey has banned the burqa, why should Bosnia-Hercegovina
not do the same?" Kalabic concluded.
