"Armenians committed acts of vandalism in our liberated lands. Graves were dug out, human bones were removed, mosques were used as stables. Almost all religious, material and cultural artifacts in Karabakh were either destroyed or Armenianized," Chairman of the Caucasus Muslims Office Sheikh ul-Islam Allahshukur Pashazade said at a meeting with a group of religious community leaders from Los Angeles, USA, Report informs.
The chairman of the BMC said that the Azerbaijani army under President, Victorious Supreme Commander-in-Chief has liberated the occupied territories: "Today Karabakh is free and life is back again to those territories. Azerbaijan returned the bodies of Armenian servicemen in the 44-day war. But Armenia still has not returned the bodies of the Azerbaijanis killed in the First Karabakh war. This is another vivid example of the Armenians’ character. Armenia has always tried to instill in the world the idea that they are surrounded by Muslim countries and are under pressure here. By this, Armenia wanted to hide the key essence of Karabakh’s occupation and wanted to present the war as a Christian-Muslim conflict, but their attempt failed.”
Informing the guests about the religious tolerance in Azerbaijan, the Chairman of the Caucasus Muslims Office said that multiculturalism is a way of life: "People of all religions live in peace and tranquility in the country. The policy of multiculturalism, founded by great leader Heydar Aliyev in the country, successfully continues and develops. All conditions have been created in our country for people of different religions to live and worship comfortably. This is also a state policy in our country. Noting with satisfaction the religious tolerance in our country, the leaders of religious communities in Azerbaijan said that there is a harmony of religious and cultural diversity."
"We are happy about the success of Azerbaijan. We have a share in this success. Azerbaijan is the home of all of us. Together we are working to protect this house and achieve greater success," speakers said.
Expressing satisfaction with their stay in Azerbaijan, the guests praised the existence of religious harmony in the country.
"Thank you for the detailed information about the Karabakh realities. Because these truths are sometimes not properly highlighted in the world media. Therefore, it is very important to provide the world with this objective information," guests said.
