Chapter Summary

This chapter provides an up-to-date account of the situation of Muslims in Montenegro. It presents essential data with basic statistics with evaluations of their reliability, surveys of legal status and organizations. The last official census in Montenegro was in 2003, three years before the independence referendum, at a time of political and social turmoil. Montenegro is a secular state. There is no state religion, religion is separated from the state, and religious communities are regarded equally. The Muslims of Montenegro are organised as one community through the Islamic Community in Montenegro, which is divided into 14 regional committees. Over five centuries of Muslim rule, 162 mosques were built on the territory of present-day Montenegro, of which 90 were destroyed in the first half of the twentieth century. The teaching of religion is not included in the public education system in any form.
