In Azerbaijan, they demand that the Blue Mosque in Yerevan should no longer be called an ‘Iranian’ mosque, according to APA.

Sabuhi Huseynov—a “historian” and the author of an “investigation” ordered by Azerbaijani authorities on the "Fate of Tapabashi settlement, which is the last vestige of the national-cultural, historical heritage of Azerbaijan in Yerevan city: Destruction of the heritage of Azerbaijani people in Armenia and elimination of historical signs"—claims that "the Blue Mosque cannot be Iranian; the mosque is Azerbaijani."

Allegedly because "up to 100 Persians lived in Yerevan in 1917. Majority of those living in Yerevan until 1831-1920 have been Azerbaijanis."

"Today, well-known researchers in the world laugh at calling the Blue Mosque an ‘Iranian’ mosque. A mosque would not be constructed for 100 people, it should be put an end to call the Blue Mosque an ‘Iranian’ mosque," Huseynov claimed.
