than justice. I think that that kind of forgiveness, compassion etc is something that we needto develop as Muslims. As I say, it is part of the spirit of Allah within us, but it’s somethingwe need to allow to come out. My mother, I’ll just end on this since you asked me a personalquestion, my mother for example, she and my brother lived alone, and when he died, she wasliving on her own. She has no desire to see anyone go to prison for the murder of my brother,she has no desire to see anyone being punished, her only request is she wants to know whathappened and move on with her life, and I think we can be like that.
Dr Ceric, with the death of Milosevic, some people are saying that they aredisappointed because he’ll never see justice being done to him. Do you agree?
Mufti Mustafa Ceric:
No, no, he will see justice of course, I don’t think we shouldconcentrate on Milosevic now, I mean Milosevic is over. What we have to do is concentrateon the victims and to try to help them. Milosevic will meet his hell, I think, I don’t know. Solet me come back to the compassion, the art of compassion. This is very personal. We are notthe same. Some people have the ability to have more compassion and forgiveness thanothers. If I now tell you the stories of women in Srebrenica, I think monkeys would cry, how it is difficult. But what we have achieved at least, that these women are not talking aboutrevenge and I think they have a healthier life than those who did commit genocide. There issomething in us, God has created in us, that we cannot overcome, that we cannot ignore, andbecause we are part – you know in the Qur’an God says that He has put His Spirit in us (“wanaghhaha fi ruhihi”), so there is something.
