Serb and Croat politicians are increasingly using Islamophobic rhetoric with aim of dividing Bosnia, says new report.

Islamophobic rhetoric at the political level, which at its peak in the 1990s Bosnian War played a significant role in the massacre of thousands of Bosniaks, is once again being used by Bosnian Serb, Serbian, Bosnian Croat and Croatian politicians with dangerous aims, according to a new report.

Prior to and during the 1992 -1995 conflict, divisive and dehumanising language was used with the hope of splitting the country into “Greater Croatia” and “Greater Serbia”.
