Sheikh-ul-Islam said at the event in the CMB that external influences on Azerbaijan are growing this year, especially believers should be very careful in this issue.
He noted that there is a religious diversity in Azerbaijan and very good tolerance among religious sects: “Sometimes, our religious sects undergo external impacts. Some theologians are also exposed to external influences. Taking into account upcoming presidential elections to be held in the country, believers should be more careful. Don’t let our believers be used on the eve of elections.”
