“Some people join various sects in Azerbaijan. We have a perfect religion, but we can not promote it properly,” he said.

The parliamentarian said he did not want to assess anybody’s activity, later he said:
“I love everybody. But I love my nation and state most of all. Bananas, raisins from Africa and various fruits are put on the tables in the mourning ceremonies in Azerbaijan. Tents for mourning ceremonies are more expensive than wedding places. Why has the Caucasian Muslims Office not issued fatwa? Measures should be taken about it. Former district policemen, ex-prisoners, instead of talented persons with religious education, lead the mourning ceremonies in Azerbaijan. I hear that Caucasian Muslims Office gave license to sausages. When did Pope give such a license? What about donation boxes? Is its tax paid? Why doesn’t they report on what the money is spent? In Georgia this money is spent on heart surgery of children. This money belongs to people. On what is this money spent? It should be made clear,” he said.

Novruzov said reforms were being carried out in all spheres in Azerbaijan and added that those reforms should also be carried out in the religious sphere.
“It should not be delayed. Religion should be promoted properly,” he said.
