Stealing news from Azerbaijan.

Daughter of opposition activist excluded from school after protest

Director of studies: “We followed the Education Ministry’s instructions.”

Six-year-old Sevinj Ahmadova, daughter of Ibrahim Ahmadzade – member of Ictimai Palata (“Public Chamber”) – has been excluded from school. In an interview with “Demokrat” newspaper on 7 April, Irahim Ahmadzade’s wife Gulnara Ahmadova says that her daughter was excluded from school on the day her husband was arrested – 31 March.

Ibrahim Ahmadzade was detained on 31 March; Sumgait Court sentenced him to 7 days administrative detention.

Gulara Ahmadova says that before her husband’s arrest, there were no problems with Sevinj Ahmadova wearing a hijab: “The primary reason for our daughter being excluded is Ibrahim actively taking part in Musavat Party’s protest in Baku on 12 March. He was called to the police station several times in order to stop him from taking part in the protest on 2 April. Then they arrested him without even informing us, and excluded my daughter from school. Sevinj went to school with a headscarf on before Ibrahim’s arrest and nobody said anything. As soon as Ibrahim was active in protests against the government, the headscarf became a problem.”
