Abusing Campaign to be launched by Armenian mass media towards Head of AIDHR

Panorama.am website called Ahmad Shahidov as a strong “armenophob”

Armenian Panorama.am website published an article under the title of “Armenophob and ‘‘dirigible human rights activist’’ Ahmфd Shahidov presents Azerbaijan at OSCE/ODIHR event in Warsaw” on September 24. The article is devoted to the speech made by Ahmad Shahidov, Head of the Azerbaijani Institute for Democracy and Human Rights (AIDHR) at OSCE Warsaw meeting. The news mainly focused on Mr. Shahidov harsh criticism of Armenian government and it associated this with his being Armenophob. The article that aimed to anti-propagate Ahmad Shahidov made references to the statements written on national spirit by him while studying in Moscow and he was depicted as the Armenian enemy. In the end, authors of the article called on the international organizations to cease their collaboration with the head of AIDHR.

As for information, the article was highlighted by the social networks and caused heated discussions; ultimately Armenian nationalists insulted head of AIDHR and threatened him with death.
For his part, Ahmad Shahidov noted that from time to time he faced anti-propagation campaign from Armenian side and the situation worsened following his recent statements made at the OSCE Warsaw meeting. He stressed that it’s not coincidence that Armenian mass media re-activated the campaign after incident that occurred while he was making a speech.
