Academician Isa Habibbayli said that the main feature that distinguishes Mir Jalal is that he has a universal, multifaceted activity. He was a professional in all his fields as a writer, literary critic, publicist, and teacher. Saying that Mir Jalal only created the objective reality, the real life of a person, without idealizing the era he lived in, without promoting the ideology of the strict communist regime, the president of ANAS said that this handwriting of the writer can also be observed in his novels, narratives, satirical and humorous works.

Academician emphasized that Mir Jalal also played the role of a bridge between the beginning of the 20th century and the famous "Sixties" literary generation with his creativity and rich activity, and made important contributions to the development of a new literary generation.

ANAS head Isa Habibbayli, noted that  Mir Jalal's rich heritage is being re-researched by our scientists based on the challenges of the independence era, his works are being reprinted and his bright memory is being passed on to future generations.

Fuzuli and Department head of the Institute of Literature, Doctor of Philology Vagif Yusifli shared their memories on Mir Jalal.

Speaking at the end, the Rector of ADA University, Professor Hafiz Pashayev, reminded that the 110th anniversary of Mir Jalal was also held at the Institute of Literature 5 years ago, and said that it is commendable that this anniversary was celebrated by scholars of the humanitarian field and various research institutes at the Academy.
