I am saying this for a reason that is well known to all of us, whether some like it or not, the role of religious communities and religious leaders in our country is, after all, the role of spiritual and generally moral authorities for a good part of Bosnians and Herzegovinans. This makes that role more important, but the responsibility is also greater,” said Komšić.
