I don't get the point of this post. So what? So the Austrians allowed the local Muslim rulers to keep on administering Bosnia and upheld the Turkish distribution of property , so?
Non-Muslims were not allowed to own vast portions of land though a lot of that land was tendered and maintained by Christians and other non-Muslims. It was a corrupt system of property law to say the least.
Kmet can be equated to 'Proletariat' or non-land owning peasants similar to the old feudal system in Europe. But rather than being distinguished by class , peoples' property rights were distinguished by religious affiliation.
Where is your 'Lets bring back Feudalism and Slavery T-Shirt?'
Or maybe some of that good old jus primae noctis ;D
The jus primae noctis (right to the first night) or droit de seigneur (the right of the feudal lord), by which the Bosniak Ottoman in charge of an estate or the local Bosniak landlord had the right to the virginity of all brides among the vlahoserb kmets. According to Petar Zdazdic there was a tradition that the "serb" kmet would have to walk around the house with his shoes in his hands when an Ottoman official or landlord came to the house to have intercourse with his wife.
Thanks for reminding us Tito of why Muslims are the devil. Doing a great job.
There is an old saying in Bosnia that goes something like: Vlah za stolom ti isto misli kao vlah u vreci na kojem sjedis. The more freedom we give to the ungrateful vlah kmets in Bosnia the worst they get. So instead of even attempting to please your genocidal aspirations towards us, your former owners, we are now better of openly fighting for what has always been ours and never yours.
What I’m getting is proof that the old saying right. No matter if I or any other and all Bosniaks choose to sit on a vlah(or all vlahs) the ungrateful vlahs attitude(or all vlahs attitude) will remain the same as if I or any other and all Bosniaks where offering you equal citizen rights. There is simply no way for us to satisfy your genocidal aspirations towards us so we might as well stop trying and fight back as hard as we can, with the same attitude we receive from the ungrateful vlah regardless if we choose to sit on you or choose to share our table with you.
