He said they would not allow removal of the mosque and would appeal against the court decision. He denied that the mosque was built in the territory of the Azerbaijan State Economy University.
The university’s rector Shamsaddin Hajiyev told APA they appealed to the Yasamal Executive Power when the construction work began. He said it was the public area and protected by the government and no one could hold illegal construction there.
Spokeswoman for the State Committee for the Work with Religious Associations Yagut Aliyeva said the mosque construction was not the committee’s concern. She said the religious community visiting this mosque registered its address as a residence address, but then changed it to the mosque.
Spokeswoman for the Caucasian Muslims Office Rahima Dadashova said the issue would be investigated. She said Sheik-al-Islam Haji Allahshukur Pashazadeh and the Office were against the removal of any mosque.
Yasamal District Executive Power officials were not available to express their reaction.
