Vintage Azeri Satirical Magazine

BBC News has released a fascinating article about an Azeri satirical magazine Molla Nasreddin that was published from 1906 till it seems to have been taken over by Soviet authorities in the early 1930s. 

How Muslim Azerbaijan had satire years before Charlie Hebdo.

The issues discussed in Molla Nasreddin are still relevant today.
