Hungarian danger in Bácska!

Of course the statement formulated in the title is not true. Nevertheless, in the online publishing that appeared on the 18 November 2008, the journalists of the newspaper called Večernje Novosti in Beograd talk about exaggerated anti-Hungarian atrocities, respectively they write articles about the Serbs being threatened. (A day later, the journalist of the Politika (Politics) newspaper is writing about the same topic, in the same tone.) These articles have appeared with the following titles: „Tenzije na severu Bačke“(Tensions on the north side of Bácska), „Putuju da bi čuli srpski“, (They travel to hear Serbian language) (1), or „Mađarizacija Stare Moravice“ (Magyarization of Bácskossuthfalva (Stara Moravica)) (2). They relate upon the fact that the question of the anti-Hungarian intemperance in Szabadka (Subotica) is being exaggerated, furthermore the Serbs in Bácskossuthfalva (Stara Moravica) feel threatened and oppressed. As we feel that so and similar writings do not serve to the peaceful coexistence between the nations, we consider it necessary to express our opinion.

The author of the article “Tensions on the north side of Bácska” besides the public figures has also made speak the citizens in Szabadka (Subotica) as well, who did not understand what these “tensions between nations” really means.

The facts of the more than a dozen anti-Hungarian attacks in Szabadka (Subotica) (3) do not confirm the view that the relations between the nations are in the most perfect shape possible. For example from 2003 till nowadays – on the basis of the information available to us – in Vojvodina there are 234 anti-Hungarian atrocities and infringements of lawful rights documented. Among of these, in several cases the afflicted persons have suffered serious or grievous injuries, in one case the attack has taken a victim as well. However, the number of the concrete cases is much bigger than this, namely in many instances it does occur that the complainants do not dare to report the attack committed against them, or simply – because of the bad experiences – they consider it meaningless to do so. (The anti-minority attitude was also typical to the 1990s but the dictatorial regime concealed – put to silence – these cases.)

The authors of the article “They travel to hear Serbian language” are mentioning the politicians from Szabadka (Subotica), whereas the anxiety and fear is perceptible in the air as well. After this they are adding that the general feeling of anxiety – in Bácskossuthfalva (Stara Moravica) with a population of roughly 5700 people – can be read in the eyes of the some 200 inhabitants with Serb nationality.
