National Movement in the District of Gjilani and the Destruction of Komiti’s Squad of Pasjan in 1907

Fitim Rifati


Serbian Political Program "Naçertania" of 1844, which foresaw, among other things, the penetration of the Serbian state towards the south, namely the territorial extent in the administrative area of the Ottoman Empire inhabited by Albanians, did not exclude the possibility of organizing armed groups to carry out concrete actions in the implementation of this platform. Serbian armed groups, entering these areas, were aimed at destabilizing order and tranquility, to give way to the Serbian state policy to intervene in the internal affairs of the Ottoman Empire, with the justification of the "protection" of the Serbian element from the so-called Albanians’ “wrongdoings”. Pasjani Serbian squad is a concrete illustration of Serbian political claims in Albanian lands.

Keywords:  Pasjani, squad, Serbians, Albanians, extermination.
