It is also not the first time that Ayasofya was closed to worship. It happened before many times in history. Catholic Crusaders looted, it saw civil wars and dynasty struggles, set on fire, damaged by neglect, damaged in earthquakes and so on... Many times during the Christian period, it was closed to worship for many years.
Mr @Imran Khan knows nothing about the history of Hagia Sophia, it's just his secularistic ego was HURT, so he went running on every thread discussing this issue.

I would recommend him to read what the crusaders did with orthodox and Hagia Sophia.

my dear sir crusades started in 1101 and end at 1492 . ottomans captured Istanbul at 29 May 1453. can you teach me please how crusaders harm a church at the period when it was under them already at crusade times ?

2nd point we see mosque blasts in pakistan even shrines were bombed by our own muslim radical groups . should i go past how Muslims attack on Muslim worshiping sites ? hujjaj bin yusif burnt holy makkah site .
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siege_of_Mecca_(692)
this is lame excuse for me that because intra christine wars we have right to capture a church and convert a mosque


my whole point stands on one line

those whom build it the make it church and it should be remain a church . its simple no body should convert a religious site to other religion's site .

Meh....medieval times.... some crusaders were besieging a town in a anti cathar crusade. When the leading Bishop was informed that the town has Catholic inhabitants he famously proclaimed:

"Kill them all, God will sort his own"....lmfao:cheesy:

This is a great move from Erdogan.
Constantinople was conquered after centuries of sacrifices by Turk Muslims.
Not using the hallmark of Constantine power as mosque was betrayal of hundreds of years of Turkish Muslim struggle.

so does shia sunnis in islam too sir
Keep to the topic.

Learn about the 3rd Crusade. And don't talk about a subject that you know nothing about.
