At the time when the president of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, admires himself for the conversion of Hagia Sophia from a museum to a mosque, members of the opposition raise the issue of returning it to a museum!

As SKAI correspondent Manolis Kostidis reports from Istanbulthe Islamist Temel Karamolaouglu, president of the “Happiness” party, said that “It is an important building, it was built 1500 years ago – Tourists should also visit the places that are not mosques.”

In detail, Temel Karamolauglou pointed out about Hagia Sophia:

“Agia Sophia is a large building, a large space. Except for the places used as mosques, the rest of the places can be opened for tourists to visit. I have read many articles and studies as the technology used at the time Hagia Sophia was built is particularly important. What did they plan and what did they achieve then.”

The journalist Taha Akgyol commented: – 1500 years ago!

And Karamolauglou added: – In fact, it is still standing today!

At the same time, there are others who react in Turkey to this possibility, such as the journalist Mustafa Guler, who answered Karamolaoglou in another show:

“Who does Agia Sophia bother? Who does the minarets of Hagia Sophia bother? Why are you so upset? Okay, we understand the Greeks who think they own this area and that’s why they are annoyed that the prayer of the imam is heard from the minarets. As does the West and the Patriarchy and the USA. But remember Hagia Sophia will forever remain a mosque and the power of Temel Karamolaoglu will not be enough to change that. There is no coming back from this.”
