AIT holds event dedicated to November 17 - National Revival Day

17 November, 2021

Azerbaijan Institute of Theology (AIT) held an event dedicated to November 17 - National Revival Day.

Rashad Mustafa, a lecturer at the Faculty of Theology, spoke at the occasion and provided thorough information about the historic day. R.Mustafa shared the facts regarding Azerbaijanis deported from Armenia to Azerbaijan in the 1980s while speaking in depth about historical events that occurred prior to the National Revival Day. He stressed that the Armenians were disappointed with this and were rioting in the Nagorno-Karabakh region, trying to unite the ancient lands of Azerbaijan. The people of Azerbaijan already knew at the time that neither Moscow nor the country's previous government intended to act decisively. Hundreds of thousands of Azerbaijanis gathered in Baku's Freedom Square to denounce Armenia's provocations and the Soviet Union's dual policy.

The gathering, according to the historian, was a symbol of national unity because everyone, regardless of political or religious beliefs or socioeconomic class, was fighting for a common purpose. R.Mustafa stressed that the triumph in the 44-day Patriotic War was the consequence of unity and equality, emphasizing that this event marked the start of a historic journey from national revival to national progress.
