Bosnians or Bosniaks are a slavic people from Bosnia who adopted Islam as their religion during the Ottoman rule(1463–1878). The term is usually used to link Slavic Muslims in the region. The majority of the inhabitants of Bosnian were most likely Croats/Serbs, with some small mix of Illyrian/Celtic/Roman tribes until the Ottoman rule. Over the few hundred years of Ottoman rule brought many Turks and Islam into the area. After the end of the Ottoman rule came the Austro-Hungarian rule (1878–1918).

Bosnia joined their South-Slavic brothers in the creation of Yugoslavia. In 1992 Bosnian wanted their own independence even though 54% of the Bosnian population was either Serb/Croat/Yugoslav (1991 census: 1,366,104 (31%) Serbs, and 760,852 (17%) Croats, with 242,682 (6%) Yugoslavs)

Bosniak Muslims were a small minority in Yugoslavia(1981 census of Yugoslavia shows that Muslim Bosnians make up 8.9%) The majority of the countries land mass is Republic of Srpska(serb majority) and the southern Hrvat area(croat majority).

Most Bosniaks don't practice Islam as a religion but just use it to identify themselves. Most Bosniaks wear Western-style clothes and consume alcohol which is much different than the the true Islamic way.
Bosnia is ethnically divided into Bosnians/Bosniaks, Serbs, and Croats.

A Bosnian is a person who's heritage originates from Bosnia. Bosnians have a strong belief in paranormal activity which explains why they are terrified of ghosts and ghouls. When Bosnians come in contact with such a being they get what is called a spook, when spooked, Bosnians either react in two ways, one, they cower in fear and try to contact the authorities(who never come because the police are natural allies with paranormal beings) or two, they experience extreme aggression and use their Bosnian powers they were given by the ghostbuster gods and with great force, they destroy the fiend. The war will never end between them because the ghouls want what all Bosnians need to survive on earth, soccer. But the Bosnians always refuse, thus the battle never ends and to this very day, the war goes on.
My spook senses are tingling, fuck you guys This Bosnian it fucking out of here!
