He has noted, "In 1996, as a result of the policy carried out by the Azerbaijani authorities the Islamist party of that country faced serious problems, and some of its leaders got arrested, the other part simply fled the country. Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and other Salafi groups will strengthen their position in Azerbaijan until there is a favorable atmosphere in created in Azerbaijan for Islamic party.”

Reza Shah in Iran was also against hijab, as a result he lost his power. If the Azerbaijani leaders continue acting against the religious activists then they will lose their power, just like the Iranian Shah did.”
