Turkish court rules Istanbul's Hagia Sophia can revert to a mosque | DW News

Turkey's highest administrative court has issued a ruling that paves the way for the government to convert Istanbul's Hagia Sophia from a museum back into a mosque. The ruling annulled a 1934 government decree that turned the UNESCO Word Heritage Site, and Istanbul's most iconic landmark, into a museum. But Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan pushed to restore its status as a mosque. He said that international pressure to keep it a museum was a violation of Turkey's national sovereignty. The Russian Orthodox Church has called the move unacceptable.

The can't build anything themselves, so they take it from the others. If anything, my opinion towards Islam has decreased significantly.
For a time it was a mosque, a synagogue and a church. Many buildings have hosted many religions in past centuries, this might be a solution, we could learn from the past.
All religions share a strong sense of fraternity and care for others, this is the time to show that in practice, we could see how god religious groups can be.

Like as if courts even mean anything now a days.
This is the equivalent of turning St. Peter's Basilica into a mosque. It is like the Vatican for the Orthodox church. So what are they going to do? Destroy the art? Plaster over the mosaics? It was a church much longer than it was a mosque.

This finally proves that it’s very important for any religious group or ethnic group or linguistic group to maintain it’s numerical superiority in a country to preserve ones culture and property.
Forget about Sophia Hagia, you merely have chance to perform a Salah in there.
Why you are so serious about turning masque to church or turning church to masque.
If you are a masque, then everywhere you be is the masjid.
If you are a temple, them everywhere you be is the dignity.
If you are a church, then everywhere you be is the song and smile.

It used to be a Church, and then it became the Pentagon of its era. Then the Turks conquered it and it was converted into a mosque.

The Israeli occupation transformed the Red Mosque in Safed, which was founded by Al-Zahir Baybars in 1276, into an electoral headquarters and a meeting place for artists, then a clothing store, and today it became a "wedding hall and bar", without regard to its religious sanctity or its historical value. Anybody talked about that ?
