Milorad Drašković (Serbian Cyrillic language: Милорад Драшковић

10 April 1873 – 21 July 1921) was a Serbian politician who was the Minister of Internal Affairs of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia.[1]

On 21 July 1921 Alija Alijagić, a member of the communist organization Crvena Pravda, shot and killed Drašković. Although Drašković was a staunch anti-communist and enacted several pieces of anti-communist legislation, the Communist Party of Yugoslavia condemned the act. Nevertheless, this inspired King Alexander to make a law concerning protection of the state that made the communist party illegal.[2]
