In “Politika” from January 9, the interview of prof. Dr. Shefket Krcic, academician and university professor, entitled “I want to restore dignity to Bosniaks in Montenegro”.
Given that I know this man and colleague well, I must point out that, although he is a man who is known around the world, if I were to list all his works and activities known around the world, within the framework of philosophy, ethics, aesthetics , rhetoric, logic, anthropology, ontology, epistemiology and methodology, I would need a lot of sheets of paper and space in the newspaper.
Dr. Krcic is an erudite of broad understandings, but also a man who belongs to the category of persons of high moral qualities. I met Professor Krcic when the International University was formed in Novi Pazar and when they invited me to help them with the growth and development of the Department of Psychology. Due to a number of high moral qualities and the large fund of knowledge he carries, it was a pleasure to work with him. Precisely because of those qualities, Professor Krcić is a favorite among students and appreciated by his colleagues. He approached each task as if he was facing a problem for the first time, tactically measured, organized, but also assertive, because he always had an elaborate idea and emphasized the ethics of the results.
From the rich biography of Professor Krcić, it can be seen that he turned a lot over his shoulders because of his progressive ideas. He fought for years against the political Scylla and Charybdis, and in the end he drove truth and justice to the clearing, came out with a shield, clean-faced and as if nothing had happened, set out on his idea and fight for equality of peoples in the hot Balkans. As ruthless and a shrewd critic human and political injustices at this time, he accepted a difficult but also challenging job. His goal is clear and precise. Although he is aware of all the risks in his work and that he will be exposed to many windmills, he wants to restore dignity to Bosniaks in Montenegro through the formation, according to his idea, of a liberal Bosniak organization, which will fight for the basic goal he stated in his program.
The time has come for the realization of these progressive ideas, and every ordinary person would wish him success in that, because dignity is not only a problem of Bosniaks in Montenegro, but also of other peoples in those areas.
