This research studies the trend of political development of Islam in one of the most sensitive points, namely Balkan. The main question we deal with here is this: how can the interests of Islamic World be fulfilled in this area, considering potential and actual facilities of Muslims and the political developments recently affecting Muslims in this area?
The Balkan Peninsula is one of the crisis-prone areas of today’s world. The crises of this area have different roots and in will be a mistake to ascribe all of them to the conflict between the West and Islam. This research does not look for roots of all crises, but limits itself to Islamic development and the crises emerged due to this phenomenon.
The complexities of this task are clear to any researcher and student, because if we don’t consider different aspects completely and through a systematic approach, the study’s results and conclusion will be certainly wrong. Consequently, it has been tried in this research to present a brief description of geographic and historical conditions of the area; this provides us with information concerning the process of entrance of Islam to this area and people’s reaction to it, and thus makes our systematic analysis concerning Balkan crises easier and helps us predict future crises in the area and find answer for the main question of this research.
