The leader of the Islamic Community in Montenegro, Reis Rifat Fejzic, on Monday said that one should not associate Muslims with terrorists, noting that such misconceptions are more frequent after the recent terrorist attacks in Paris.
Fejzic told the local TV broadcaster that the Muslims felt to be under the scrutiny only for the developments for which they were not responsible.
Some interpretations about faith being fostered by violence have appeared and "it is insane", the dignitary said.
He said according to media reports ten Montenegrins were fighting in Syria and Iraq currently. Fejzic called on them to return, repent and renounce such ideas, and he also appealed on anybody who is planning to go Syria or Iraq, to stay at home with their families in Montenegro rather than "giving their lives at battlefields with no goal".
