Allashukur Pashazade 'There were 18 mosques in Azerbaijan in the
Soviet times.

After we gained our independence, the number of the mosques reached
1800. We used to complain that there were few places for praying. But
there are people who complain even now.

They do not appreciate the present situation,' head of the Caucasus
Muslims Department, Allashukur Pashazade said on the occasion of the
birth of Prophet Muhammad.

Sheikh said Azerbaijani believers should appreciate our independence.

'We should appreciate our tricolor flag, state and our nation. We
should express gratitude for the reconstructed religious establishments
in the country,' he said.

Allahshukur Pashazade said that some forces do not want to see the
conditions created for the believers in Azerbaijan. 'There are internal
and external forces that do not want to admit the good deeds,' he said.

Karabakh

'Karabakh is a Muslim land and it will be returned to its real owner
soon or late', said Chairman of the Caucasian Muslims Allahshukur
Pashazade.

Sheikh said if anyone didn't see or didn't want to see this justice,
they were blind. 'Azerbaijan is our destiny. Allah entrusted us with
it for safekeeping'.
