It seems that the final and almost complete national individualization of Muslim Slavs took place only during the tragedy they experienced during the Serbian large-scale aggression on Bosnia and Herzegovina in the period of 1992-95 (the aggression against Bi H started already in October 1991 by the slaughter of the Croats in the Herzegovinian village of Ravno).
This aggression found Muslim officials totally unprepared.
Also in Hrvatsko Zagorje, near Zagreb, there is a One can find Croatian families bearing the Turkish second name of Ulama even in the NW of Croatia (Hrvatsko Zagorje).
The town of Tuhelj in Hrvatsko Zagorje was given by those Croats who had to escape from the region of the village of Tuhelj in Bosnia, between Kresevo and Konjic, see [Gizdelin, pp 44, 53].
During the initial ceremonial greetings they had with Rustem - pasha Hrvat (= Croat) the conversation led in Turkish with an official interpreter was suddenly interrupted. One of the oldest texts written in Arabica (which is in fact Arabic script for the Croatian language) is a love song called "Chirvat-trkisi" (= Croatian song) from 1588, written by a certain Mehmed in Bosnia.
Rustem - pasha Hrvat asked in Croatian if Zay and Vrancic spoke Croatian language. Sed et Verancius itidem, quum eum Croatice ob quaedam severius dicta lenire vellet, dixit.. This manuscript is held in the National Library in Vienna.
Marco Pigafetta in his "Itinerario'' published in London in 1585 states: "In Istanbul it is customary to speak Croatian, a language which is understood by almost all official Turks, especially military men." This can also be confirmed by the 1553 visit of Antun Vrancic, Roman cardinal, and Franjo Zay, a diplomat, to Istanbul as envoys of the Croat - Hungarian king to discuss a peace treaty with the Turks. Hrvat Rustem pasha originates from the region of Makarska, and his original Croatian second name was Opukovic. He was also known as Piale Pasha in the West or Pial Baj in Spain; Turkish: Piyale Pasa.
The reason is that the Croats in Bosnia are also Bosniaks.
