  • Hijab Protests in Azerbaijan

    The number of protests in Azerbaijan for the freedom to wear the hijab is growing, as are the questions surrounding those demonstrations—like who is behind them? The hijab, or headscarf, was banned in public schools by the Ministry of Education in 2010, and protests against the ban became violent in October, 2012. Some protestors were armed with wooden polls, and Azerbaijani police say dozens were detained after resisting arrest. Critics of the regime are suspicious, however, and accuse the government of using the hijab controversy to manipulate Western governments' fear that a radical Islamic state will emerge if democratic change comes to Azerbaijan.

Despite the increased interest in Islam and national values in recent years, the absolute majority of the population rejects religious radicalism, according to the results of a survey on "Islam in Azerbaijan: realities and public opinion" conducted by the Center for Religious Studies in cooperation with the Center for Strategic Studies under the President of Azerbaijan. The survey was conducted from May 20 to June 15, 2012 in all regions of the country among 1500 respondents. Over 10% of respondents said that they have become "more faithful than five years ago." The research shows that increasing number of citizens perform namaz and fast during Ramadan. According to Elshad Iskandarov, the head of the State Committee on Work with Religious Structures, the research confirmed that Azerbaijani people support religious tolerance and reject of religious radicalism. Head of the Center for Strategic Studies, Farhad Mammadov, said that there is not any universal formula for state-religion relations, and such studies serve to form the government policy on religion. Afterwards the statistical outcomes of the survey were presented. In particular, 30.2% of respondents deeply believe in God, and just 66% consider themselves believers. There are only 0.1% of atheists. 96.8% consider themselves to be Muslims, 0.8% - orthodox Christians, and 0.1% Jews. Following are the results of the people's attitude towards religion: 83% see themselves as believers; 3.8% said they had not been believers, but had now become believers; and 10.3% said they were believers in the past, but now had become more religious. As for the attitude towards namaz (prayer), 57.6% do not perform namaz, 10.9% perform it daily, 3.5% perform from time to time, and 1.2% only on Fridays. At the same time, 4.7% used to perform namaz, but have now abandoned it. Only 5% of the population regularly attends mosques, and the same number of people support establishing an Islamic religious state in Azerbaijan. About 90% of the respondents respect other religions, and 4% hate them. 2.6% of respondents share the ideas of Salafism (Wahhabism). 42.8% consider it an alien ideology; 12.4% do not like the appearance and behavior of the Salafis, 30.2% have a negative attitude towards them, assuming that they are promoting fanaticism, religious radicalism and extremism.

The Autonomous region was established in 1923 according to the decision of Supreme Soviet Government by Joseph Stalin and was dissolved in 1991 by the Parliament of Azerbaijan Soviet republic as Armenia enhanced its claims to this region of Azerbaijan with support of local Armenian population which committed ethical cleansing and expulsion of sizeable Azerbaijani population of the region. Later on the Armenian troops invaded the Nagorno Karabakh region of Azerbaijan and occupied this region as well as 6 other districts next to it. The occupation and ethnic cleansing of local Azerbaijani population was condemn by all international organisation such as UN Security Council, European Council and Nagorno Karabakh was reaffirmed to be the part of Azerbaijan Republic numerous times.

When both Azerbaijan and Armenia declared independence, tensions grew and the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict ignited in Baku when Armenia claimed almost all Azerbaijani lands as part of the Armenian Republic. The Armenian Republic was also involved with a war with the Georgian Republic. Early in March 1918, in just 3 days, over 15,000 Azerbaijanis were massacred in Baku alone by Armenian and Bolsheviks (Communist Russian) units led by Stepan Shahumyan (Armenian Communist). According to some experts the exact number of massacred Azerbaijanis is still uncertain as it ranges from 15,000 to 20,000. Later in 1923 the city of Khankendi in Karabakh was renamed to Stepanakert by the Soviet Union, to honor Stepan Shahumyan for his Massive March Massacre in Baku. Other regions with ethnic Azerbaijani population suffered aswell, over 70,000 Azerbaijanis were massacred in Nakhchivan alone. More then 30,000 Azerbaijanis were massacred in Karabakh. Over 4,000 Azerbaijani-Jews were massacred in Guba. During the short independence of Azerbaijan, the state was mainly busy with defense against Armenian and Russian invasion and massacres. After liberation by the Ottoman army, rebuilding, governmental and cultural reforms became the priority of the Azerbaijani state. It was the first democratic and secular republic in the Muslim world. Not to mention it was amongst the first countries in the world to adopt suffrage to women. Azerbaijan preceded even such developed countries as the United Kingdom and the United States. Stalin was put in charge of the Soviet Caucasus Plan by Vladimir Lenin. In order to calm the region down, Stalin compensated several Azerbaijani regions to Armenia. Today this conflict continues as Armenia occupies about 20% of Azerbaijan, which resulted in the displacement of one million Azerbaijanis. What else can you call two centuries of persecution, annexations and massacres except GENOCIDE.

Nearly a quarter of Iran's population is ethnically Azeri and many of them claim their rights are being trampled on by Tehran, increasing tension between Iran and Azerbaijan. Their language and literature are banned in Iranian schools and they claim the authorities are worried about unrest among ethnic Azeris and about the government's relationship with Israel. Tom Esslemont reports from the Azerbaijan-Iran border.

Welcome to my travelchannel.On my channel you can find almost 1000 films of more than 70 countries. See the playlist on my youtube channel.Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/user/nurettinodunya/playlists Lahıc: Lahij (Azerbaijani: Tat: Löhij) is a village and municipality on the southern slopes of Greater Caucasus within the Ismailli Rayon of Azerbaijan. Population is approximately 860 people who speak the Tat language.Lahij is a notable place in Azerbaijan, with its authentic handicrafts traditions, particularly related to copper. The village's carpet and rug crafts are also well known in Azerbaijan and the South Caucasus. Lahij has an old sewage system (some experts claim that it was built 1000 – 1500 years ago). Due to frequent earthquakes local people have developed sophisticated and authentic construction techniques. The majority of the population of Lahij speaks the Tati language The residents of the region are usually bilingual: as well as the Tati language, an Iranian language, the Azerbaijani language is also widely spoken. Being situated on the left bank of the River Ghirdiman and the slopes of the Niyal Mountain Chain, the settlement of Lahij is a unique living district, with its unusual planning lay out, transport systems, and its public, private and religious buildings. Lahij is an example of early urbanization and architecture, as shown by its cobbled streets and squares, together with its developed sewerage systems and water pipelines. Subterranean kurabandis (‘sewerage system’), made from river stones, and dating back to almost one thousand years, are thought to be one of the most ancient sewerage systems used in the world. The residents of Lahij are divided into three categories, based on their craftsmanship: Baadvan, Azavarro and Araghird.[9] Each of these categories has its own village square, mosque, hammam and graveyard. One of the most striking features of the urban look of Lahij, is the village square of each category, which, today, still has its specific role in the public life of the village. Earthquakes frequently occur in the region, and, as a result, a specific style of building construction has developed – which include certain styles and techniques in crosscutting stone and installation of wood. The ancient dwelling houses in Lahij have remained unchanged, as, during the past centuries, there have not been any significant changes in the urban planning. The ground floors of houses built in the main trading street are used as workshops and trade rooms. The traditional interiors of these Lahij houses include decorative tableware and other items, placed in different sized holes in the walls (known in Azerbaijan as takhcha, chamakhatan) and on wall shelves. Copper work is the most important of the skills developed by Lahij craftsmen. Lahij is renowned for its production of arms and copper items, decorated with carved ornaments. The development of copper production triggered the formation of such professions in Lahij as tinsmith, blacksmith and others, together with the creation of bituminous coal. The structure and supplies of copper workshops, as well as its traditional external look and its production processes remain preserved today, as they were in previous centuries. Written sources, as well as, the rich copperware collections that may be seen in the museums of Azerbaijan, Georgia, Russian and Europe, prove the existence of over 80 types of copperware equipment used in copperware manufacturing in Lahij. Leather goods’ manufacture was the second biggest craft skill in Lahij, after that of coppersmith. The local leather goods’ master craftsmen were expert in using shagren, tumaj and yuft as raw materials for various products such as shoes, belts, leather quilted jackets, book covers and bridles. Leather production in Lahij created suitable conditions for the development of other craftsmen, with associated skills - such as saddle makers, bridle makers, cobblers, hat makers and sheepskin makers. The development of international tourism, together with more knowledge about the people and cultures, has resulted in a gradual interest in the cultural diversity of the Region. Lahij, in recent years, has attracted the attention of many tourists visiting from countries worldwide and as a result Lahij is now included in the travel tours of several leading tourism agencies.Wikipedia

Tuesday, 26 February 2013 - AFC Champions League, Tabriz, South Azerbaijan http://www.the-afc.com/en/acl-news/acl-all-news/25302-tractorsazi-v-jazira260213.html The South Azerbaijan is historical region in the northwestern Iran, where majority of the Azerbaijani Turks live. The Azerbaijani population of Iran is mainly found in the northwest provinces: East Azerbaijan, West Azerbaijan, Ardabil, zanjan, and in some regions of Kordestan,gilan, Hamadan, ghazvin , qom and Markazi. Many others live in Tehran, Karaj, fars and other regions. The CIA World Factbook estimates Iranian Azeris as comprising nearly 16 million, or 24 percent of Iran's population. The United Nations human rights report on Iran notes that "there may be as many as 30 million" ethnic Turkish in Iran. Güney Azerbaycan İran değil Tiraxtur fans' football passion is tightly connected with their ethnic or national identity much like the way the Catalan fans' is with FC Barcelona. ----- 'South Azerbaijan is not Iran' Els seguidors de l'equip de futbol Tiraxtur reivindiquen la independència de l'Azerbaitjan Meridional respecte de l'Iran inspirant-se en l'eslògan 'Catalonia is not Spain' El 26 de febrer, a la ciutat de majoria àzeri de Tabriz, al nord de l'actual Iran, un partit de futbol es va convertir en una gran reivindicació independentista de l'Azerbaitjan Meridional. En una eliminatòria de la Champions League asiàtica entre l'equip local, el Tiraxtur, i l'al-Jazira dels Emirats Àrabs Units, els milers de seguidors presents a l'estadi van començar a cridar 'Yasasin Azerbaycan' ('visca l'Azerbaitjan'). Tot i que les autoritats iranianes prohibeixen de dur símbols i banderes de reivindicació cultural o política a l'estadi, alguns seguidors van poder desplegar-hi una gran pancarta amb la llegenda 'South Azerbaijan is not Iran', inspirada en el famós eslògan 'Catalonia is not Spain'. El Tiraxtur s'ha convertit en un símbol d'orgull nacional i del moviment independentista per als trenta milions d'àzeris que viuen a l'Azerbaitjan Meridional, actualment sota dominació iraniana. En declaracions recollides pel portal Azerireport.com, l'entrenador de l'equip, el portuguès Tony Oliveira, va dir que havia estat més que un partit de futbol: 'A Portugal he vist grans concentracions de gent, però en quaranta-cinc anys de carrera esportiva no havia experimentat mai tant d'entusiasme. Ha estat molt emocionant de veure aquest ambient tan alegre.'

Azerbaijan, is a country in the Caucasus region of Eurasia. Located at the crossroads of Eastern Europe and Western Asia,[5] it is bounded by the Caspian Sea to the east, Russia to the north, Georgia to the northwest, Armenia to the west, and Iran to the south. The exclave of Nakhichevan is bounded by Armenia to the north and east, Iran to the south and west, while having a short borderline with Turkey to the northwest. The majority-Armenian populated Nagorno-Karabakh region in the southwest of Azerbaijan declared itself independent from Azerbaijan in 1991, but it is not diplomatically recognised by any nation and is still considered a de-jure part of Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan, a nation with a majority Turkic and Shiite Muslim population, is a secular and a unitary republic with an ancient and historic cultural heritage. Azerbaijan was the first successful attempt to establish a democratic and secular republic in the Muslim world. Azerbaijan is one of the founder members of GUAM and the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, and joined the Commonwealth of Independent States in September 1993. A Special Envoy of the European Commission is present in the country, which is also a member of the United Nations, the OSCE, the Council of Europe, and the NATO Partnership for Peace (PfP) program.

Around 95% of the population are Muslims. 85% of the Muslims are Shia Muslims and 15% Sunni Muslims, and the Republic of Azerbaijan has the second highest Shia population percentage after Iran. Other faiths are practised by the country's various ethnic groups. Under article 48 of its Constitution, Azerbaijan is a secular state and ensures religious freedom. In a 2006–2008 Gallup poll, only 21% of respondents from Azerbaijan stated that religion is an important part of their daily lives. Of the nation's religious minorities, Christians who estimated 280,000 (3.1%) are mostly Russian and Georgian Orthodox and Armenian Apostolic (almost all Armenians live in the break-away region of Nagorno-Karabakh). In 2003, there were 250 Roman Catholics. Other Christian denominations as of 2002 include Lutherans, Baptists and Molokans. There is also a small ethnic Azerbaijani Protestant community. There are also Jewish, Bahá'í, Hare Krishna and Jehovah's Witnesses communities, as well as adherents of the other religious communities. Some religious communities have been unofficially restricted from religious freedom. A U.S. State Department report on the matter mentions detention of members of certain Muslim and Christian groups, and many groups have difficulty registering with the SCWRA. There is the Hindu Fire Temple of Baku ("ateshgah" in Persian) with an "old" structure which, according to travellers, has been a place of visit for Hindu priests for more than a millennium in Baku. The place is often "misrepresented as a Zoroastrian fire-temple" due to frequent association of "fire temple" with the Iranian religion of Zoroastrianism.
