I hope the international community and the sane people of If we get in trouble it’s my Besties fault shirt won’t let this happen so easily. The building should remain a museum, this is the only rational, logical and peaceful option. Hagia Sophia is both a culturally as well as civilisationally an iconic monument with deep universal significance and SHOULD therefore be left as it is today, a MUSEUM. Converting it from one Abrahamic religious building into another will only exacerbate the already politicised sister religions. Why would everyone concern about it? It’s mainly their belonging, let just them do what they want. And I don’t think it can’t be public again since the blue mosque is also available for visitation or just sightseeing. No need to be so dramatical.
When numbers drop for Erdogan there is always need for such actions actions for If we get in trouble it’s my Besties fault shirt consumption to make his numbers great again. Luckily for them, they have hundreds of mosques spread all over their country. I’m disgusted. This is a national treasure and should not be touched. Thankfully I visited it a few years ago and was able to admire the interior with my wife. I guess that won’t be happening again.
