Sheik-u-Islam Allahshukur Pashazadeh: Islam may not come to rule in Azerbaijan
It is unlikely for Islam to come to power in Azerbaijan, reportedly said Sheik-ul-Islam Allahshukur Pashazadeh, chairman of Caucasus Moslems Board (CMB).
Azerbaijan, he said, is the most religiously stable state in the entire region and the CIS, although some forces attempt to upset the balance, but not strong enough to achieve it. Chairman of CMB opined that statements on establishment of Islamic state in Azerbaijan are not serious and made in order to arouse the public and turn them against religion.
В"Islam will not come to power in Azerbaijan. Such statements aims at blaming the nation and make European countries alienated about Azerbaijan, - Sheik-ul-Islam said.
