Head of Azerbaijan's Ombudsman Office: Some European countries should put an end to intolerance


"In modern Europe, we witness religion-based injustices," Head of the Ombudsman Office of the Republic of Azerbaijan Aydin Safikhanli during a panel discussion at the international scientific conference on “Embracing Diversity: Tackling Islamophobia in 2024”, Paralel.Az reports.

Interfering with the clothing of Muslim women has now become common. Some European countries should put an end to intolerance."

Aydin Safikhanli stated that France does not comply with international obligations: "According to international law, women should be protected in armed conflicts. But historically, we have witnessed that Azerbaijani women have been subjected to ethnic cleansing and genocide at various periods. This is a direct manifestation of Islamophobia."
