The mosque was not registered and it is not a question of couple of years”, department chief of the State Committee for Work with Religious Associations Gunduz Ismayilov told APA.

The committee official said the house of prayer was known among the people as “Albanian temple”, but it was a mosque in recent years. He said the mosque community received notices several times, but never apply for registration.

Ismayilov said persons working there had no relation to the mosque. “They were not appointed by the Caucasian Muslims Office. The mosque is in the balance of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism”.

The committee official said the mosque’s activity was banned because of those reasons. Ismayilov said completely inadmissible cases occurred in the mosque. “The persons not related with the mosque were managing it. Outside people conducted sermons there. They were warned for many times. The mosque was closed for those cases”.

Ismayilov said the mosque could restore its activity by the normal community and within the law and this issue could be addressed in future.
