Hagia Sophia: Former Istanbul museum welcomes Muslim worshippers - BBC News

Crowds gathered in Istanbul as the historic Hagia Sophia site opened for Friday prayers for the first time since Turkish authorities ruled it could be converted into a mosque.

"Muslims are excited, everyone wants to be at the opening," Istanbul Governor Ali Yerlikaya said on Thursday.

The 1,500-year-old Unesco World Heritage site became a museum in 1934.

But a Turkish court annulled its status, saying any use other than as a mosque was "not possible legally".

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan then announced that the world-famous site would be ready for Friday prayers from 24 July, and he was seen joining worshippers at around midday (09:00 GMT).

In 14th October 1914 pope Francis
declared that:

" The theories of evolution and the Big Bang are real and God is not " a magician with a magic wand".

Speaking at the Pontificial Academy of Sciences, the pope made comment which expert said put an end to the " pseudo theories" of creationism and intelligent design that some were encouraged by his predecessor, Benedict XVI.

Francis explained that both scientific theories were not incompatible with the existence of a creator-- arguing instead that they " require it".

Declaring this Pope dismissed the Christianity for ever.
His saying that:

" My thoughts go to Istanbul. I think of Santa Sophia and I am very pained".

When he had declared the theory of evolution is not against the Christianity, at that time he was not pained!!
It is matter of great strange that
America or any leader of European countries didn't express their grief
or protest against this declaration,
because they themselves do not believe in Christianity.

They believe in the theory of evolution. A new scientific religion!!

Btw this mosque decision was done to change the current issues about the law and femicides... Erdoğan said in another speech a few years ago that ayasofya was a excuse to change the spotlight. Now that he is falling, he is changing the topic 😂😂
