Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb. 23 / Trend M.Aliyev/
Caucasus Muslims Religious Leader Sheikh ul-Islam Allahshukur Pashazadeh has made an appeal in connection with the Khojali Tragedy.
"Double standards are inadmissible in mankind's bloody memory. It is already 18 years that we are voicing about Khojali Tragedy to the mankind. Sinners of this tragedy are upbraided by the world authorities. Armenian troops committed genocide in Khojali on Feb. 26, 1992. The tragedy began early morning and over 613 unarmed Azerbaijani citizens were killed. They included 106 women and 83 children. About 1,000 people were left disabled by shots and eight families were fully destroyed. More than 25 children lost their parents, more than 1,200 people were taken prisoners and around 150 people went missing. World Community can not be indifferent to all of these wild actions," he said in a statement.
Sheikh ul-Islam appealed to the world presidents, parliaments, nations and international organizations, calling them to give legal estimation to Armenian extremists' actions, not to be indifferent to our nation's tragedy and to recognize this tragedy as a massacre.
