“We are against religious radicalism in any case. There are rooted religious traditions in Azerbaijan and believers are committed to these traditions in the country. Those taking radical steps under the guise of religion will be punished accordingly. Azerbaijan will not allow any country to violate its social and political stability. I regret that some goes abroad to allegedly get a religious education. Indeed they are taught everything there under the guise of religion. Therefore, there are some manifestations of radicalism in the society. And this causes to people’s concerns. In my opinion, there is no ground for concern. Such cases have been prevented so far and will be further prevented,” he noted.
