MP: There are destructive forces in Azerbaijan using Wahhabism
Azerbaijan, Baku, July 19 /Trend, M.Aliyev/
In Azerbaijan there are destructive forces that use the religious factor and act on behalf of Wahhabism, the director of the Human Rights Institute, MP Ayten Mustafayeva told reporters on Tuesday.
She does not consider Wahhabism a problem. "This is not Wahhabism. Such groups operate around the world under the guise of Christian or Muslim religion," she said.
According to Mustafayeva, terrorism also exists under the guise of religion, but it does not mean that the terrorists are members of a religious structure.
"Terrorism does not and can not have any relation with religion. Religion can never be destructive, and those disturbing the public order can not be representatives of the religion.
The believer never harms another person's life. This can be done only by destructive forces that use religion for their own purposes," said Mustafayeva.
