Chairman of Pakistan-based MUSLIM (Mission of Unity, Stability & Leadership in Muslims) Institute think tank, Sultan Ahmad Sahibzada told Azerbaijani outlet Trend that Armenia is responsible for "incredible acts of vandalism" in the historically and ethnically Armenian Nagorno-Karabakh region.
Although he noted that each religion cultivates respect for other religions, their values, and shrines, he said: "However, over the 30 years of occupation of Azerbaijani lands, Armenia has committed incredible acts of vandalism. I was in Shusha, Fuzuli and other territories liberated from occupation, and was shocked by the destruction I saw."
It is recalled that the "Three Brothers" nexus comprises of Pakistan, Turkey and Azerbaijan, who in early 2021, vowed to support their respective ambitions in Nagorno-Karabakh, Jammu and Kashmir, and Cyprus.
Turkey and Pakistan played key roles in Azerbaijan's ethnic cleansing of Armenians from their historical homelands in Nagorno-Karabakh, including in the aforementioned Shushi (Azeri: Shusha) and Varanda (Fuzuli), where entire Armenian apartment complexes, cemeteries and cultural sites were destroyed.
In fact, a report uncovered that an Armenian church in Nakhchivan was destroyed to make way for a mosque.
As the Eurasian Times explained, "The war of 2020 between Azerbaijan and Armenia sucked Turkey and Pakistan into its vortex. To show solidarity with Turkey in the fight against Azerbaijan, Pakistan offered weapons and materials to Azerbaijan against Armenia.
"Pakistan had no reason to jump into the fray, but the Islamic zeal dragged her into the dispute.
"The ‘Three Brothers’ (Azerbaijan, Turkey, and Pakistan) joined hands to destroy Armenia, whom they considered an outsider in the contemplated Islamic Caliphate extending from the Dardanelles to the Strait of Malacca.
"The ‘unwanted state’ concept of Armenia is as clear to the Islamists as Kashmir. That is why Erdogan has repeatedly been raking up the Kashmir issue, which binds the Three Brothers in solidarity."
