Croats are a South Slavic people. According to the published data from the 2011 Croatian census, 9,647 Muslims in Croatia declared themselves as ethnic Croats.[1] The Islamic Community of Croatia is officially recognized by the state.[3] After World War II, thousands of Croats (even those with the Islamic faith) who supported the Ustaše fled as political refugees to countries such as Canada, Australia, Germany, South America and Islamic countries.[citation needed] The descendants of those Muslim Croats established their Croatian Islamic Centre in Australia in 36 Studley St. Maidstone, Victoria[4] and the Croatian Mosque in Toronto, which is now named Bosnian Islamic Centre,[5] headed by Mr. Kerim Reis.[6][7]
