President Ilham Aliyev and First Lady Mehriban Aliyeva become familiar with the progress of construction works on Zangilan mosque

On May 26, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev and First Lady Mehriban Aliyeva became familiar with the progress of construction works on Zangilan mosque, carried out by the Heydar Aliyev Foundation with the support of Pasha Holding Ltd.

 

Assistant to the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, executive director of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation Anar Alakbarov gave information to the head of the state and the first lady about the works performed on the mosque.

 

Over the course of 30 years, while Armenia kept our lands under occupation, our historical, cultural and religious monuments in Zangilan district - as on other territories - were subjected to Armenian vandalism, and were destroyed and humiliated. The mosque in Zangilan city was used as a stall during the occupation.

 

As a result of the district’s liberation, the historical and architectural monument here were freed from the Armenian slavery. The Heydar Aliyev Foundation has been providing an exclusive service in the process of reviving our religious monuments and mosques that were destroyed or subjected to humiliation during the occupation. Works on restoration of religious monuments and mosques in Garabagh are continuing at a rapid pace.

 

The foundation of restoration works on Zangilan mosque was laid on April 26, last year, with participation of President Ilham Aliyev, First Lady Mehriban Aliyeva and their daughter Leyla Aliyeva. Restoration works are performed with no interruption.
