The 13th-century Church of Hagia Sophia in the Black Sea city of Trabzon, which has been a museum and contains irreplaceable examples of its time period – will be converted to a mosque.
There is also a plan to rebuild a mosque on the ruins of Istanbul’s St. John Studios Monastery. The Monastery was founded in Constantinople in the middle of the fifth century.
Someone told the truth:
“Islamic supremacists regard the pre-Islamic past of any Muslim country as worthless trash … not to be preserved for its archaeological value, but effaced as an insult to Islam. This is the same impulse that led to the destruction of the Bamiyan Buddhas in Afghanistan.”
Ah! Don’t be so stupid, Turkey. You have been considered most secular among all Muslim countries. Now you want to be labelled as an insane! There is no pride being like Saudi Arabia or Afghanistan! Ignorant Islamists in those countries destroy the history. As if nothing existed before Islam.
Don’t turn museums into mosques. You have no lack of mosques. Don’t try to wipe out history. History will not forgive you.
