Baku, August 6, AZERTAC
Algerian news portal Al-Harir has published an article highlighting the statement issued by the Caucasus Muslims Office (CMO) of Azerbaijan in connection with the act of aggression committed at the building of the Embassy of Azerbaijan in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland on August 4.
The article, citing AZERTAC news agency, mentioned that the Caucasus Muslims Office views this act of aggression committed against the building of the Embassy of Azerbaijan as a pre-prepared act of terrorism and vandalism of political nature. “This incident is an act of sabotage against the Republic of Azerbaijan and, in general, against international law. The facts that the radical group called the Mehdi Servants targeted the national flag of independent Azerbaijan, which is its sovereignty and attribute, and the act was accompanied with religious slogans and sectarian demands can be considered to be abuse of religion and call for hatred,” the article said.
“Azerbaijan is one of the rare countries in which an environment of friendship, fraternity and understanding reigns between religions and sects. Our country is a law-based, democratic and secular state, which is recognized with strong respect for its own national and moral values and intense care for its religious heritage and traditions. Shows of sectarian discrimination, religious intolerance, religious radicalism and xenophobia are alien to Azerbaijani society. Besides the Muslims, orthodox and catholic Christians, Jews, all the ethnic and religious minorities develop their national values and freely exhibit their religious rituals and prayers in Azerbaijan. We present our tolerant and multicultural way of life as a model of co-existence to the entire world.
The forces, which stand behind and orchestrate the sabotage against our country, should know that there is no room in the Azerbaijani society for radical and extremist forces and their destructive ideologies and the believers in Azerbaijan will never follow their malicious sabotage,” the article emphasized.
