Caucasus Muslims Clerical Office: Sheik of all-Caucasus never supported mosque’s knock down:
Azerbaijan, Baku, Jan. 12/ Trend , K. Zarbaliyeva/ The Caucasus Muslims Clerical Office (CMCO) opposes knock down of Prophet Muhammad mosque, which is claimed to be built illegally.
"Sheik of all Caucasus has never supported knock down of any mosque," CMCO spokesperson Muqaddas Payizov told Trend .
The Yasamal District Court issued a decision to knock down the mosque located 190, Murtuza Mukhtarov on Nov. 28, 2008 based on the appeal of the Yasamal Administrative Body.
The court attributed the decision to the fact that "non-residential building with unknown purpose of use" has been built there.
The mosque filed a suit against Yasamal district court decision in the Baku Appeal Court.
The lawsuit demands to cancel decision as it is unreasonable.
Payizov said those who gave permission for mosque's construction must be punished.
