Unfortunately, the "sandžak question" or, the muslim-bošnjak question, with smaller or greater intensity, has lasted a hundred and fifty years and there is a great number of facts which are necessary to know and keep in mind in discussions about Sandžak as paradigms of political crises and a potential crises-spot area. Along with that, the Serbian-Montenegrin regime in last ten years tried to solve the "sandžak question", that is, the question of Bošnjaks in FRY, by ethnic cleansing of the majority population, and instead of a solution, even more with its aggressive and anachronous national, actually national-chauvinist politics, it actualised all unsolved and suppressed questions and created even more problems. Because of that, ever for a short survey of the basic data about the further and closer prehistory of the "sandžak question" a lot of time, space and effort are neccersary. On the other hand, it is very risky to leave out facts from the pre-history of the "sandžak question" and the present the essence of present problems and point to possible solutions today in an understandable way.
