Welcome, Azerbaijan!

 

We approved our first iReport from Azerbaijan -- one of the countries on our iReport Global Challenge list -- today.

 

Ilgar Ibrahimoglu, the Imam of the Juma mosque in Baku, shared video of a peaceful protest he organized Monday outside the city’s central church to condemn the burning of qu’rans.

 

Ibrahimoglu, who is also chair of a human rights organization, said he and others went to the church with flowers and qu’rans in their hands to express their respect toward Christians and send a message of peace.

 

We're excited to invite Ibrahimoglu to the iReport community and uncover more stories from Azerbaijan. Have we heard from your country? Take a look at the list.
