Since the end of the war, various demands and ideas have been presented to form an Islamic movement or political party in Kosovo. The need for the establishment of such a political entity was also reviewed in the magazine of the Islamic Community of Kosovo “Takvim”. According to these ideas and demands, so far, in Kosovo, some Islamist political subjects have been established, aimed at changing the new democratic power that was established with the help of the international community in Kosovo, with the intention of establishing an Islamic power and acting according to the laws of Sharia and the model of contemporary Islamic states.
