Cultural Muslims[edit]

Hey, I'm a Bosnian Australian and am proud to tell people I am a cultural Muslim. We do exist, there are many of us. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:29, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Clean up[edit]

This article is in dire need of clean up, and needs a whole lot more sources. I've just gone through the article and made a number of fixes, but there's still lot's more to do. Here's a rundown of what I've fixed.

  • I have reverted the artificial inflation of population numbers, especially those that conflict with the given sources.
  • I have left in tact, for now, numbers that state they are from certain census's, but if links aren't found within a week, I will be removing these as well.
  • I have removed a small amount of the POV on this article - the article is about Bosnian Australians, not about Bosniak Australians. A lot of the article is written from the perspective of Bosnian Muslims (Bosniaks), and seeks to sidlenine, and in some instances, discriminates/attacks Bosnian Serbs and Bosnian Croats.
  • I have removed huge copyright violations.
The entire section that was labeled "Bosnian Muslim Community in Western Australia" was copy/pasted from this website -, so it has been removed entirely. You must re-write it in your own words and cite this web page.
The entire section "Settlement Experience" was copy/pasted from this website -, so it has been removed. Again, re-write in your own words (with a neutral point of view) and cite the page as a source.
Given that these two large sections were entirely copy/pasted (and in violation of copyright policy/laws), it wouldn't surprise me if there is more copyright violations on the page. Be on the lookout.
  • I have removed a number of people from the "Notable People" section who are actually not notable. All of the people I removed had no articles on Wikipedia, and no news sources/external links were provided to verify notability.
  • The entire "Facts" section has been removed, as it is entirely unsourced. It also fails the notability criteria, is superfluous, and generally falls under "pointless trivia".

That is all for now, but a lot more needs to be done to get this article up to standard. Alice Mudgarden (talk) 07:52, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
