"When I asked about the reasons, I was told that the Yazidi gave such an order (Yazidi ibn Mu'awiya led the Umayyad troops who killed in an unequal battle in 680 in Karbala Imam Hussein, the Prophet Mohammed's grandson.) But I know placing me there was. It was an order of Ramil Usubov (Interior Minister). Last time I spoke about the need to investigate the arbitrariness of the police and ask for a response from Usubov. However, instead of investigating it iniquity of his subordinateshe decided to punish me ... Three years ago, when I was also in jail. The then head of the detention center Azer Seyidov refrained me to put in a punishment cell on the day of Ashura saying that it could be perceived as support of "Yezids". But apparently MIA management believes that they are allowed," said Bagirzade.
