Following allegations of damage to Hagia Sophia, a Byzantine-era monument in Istanbul that was turned into a mosque by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkey has accused Greece of ill-treating the Ottoman Empire’s cultural heritage, the Greek newspaper Kathimerini reported.

The fact that those who are supposed to be upset by (the damage to) Hagia Sophia did not oppose the destruction of mosques in Greece, (monuments of) cultural heritage dating back to the 16th century, which have been turned into cinemas , exhibition spaces, hotels and warehouses, is too serious and speaks of hypocrisy “, wrote the Ministry of National Defense of Turkey on Twitter

“The Greek administration, which refuses to even provide graves to Muslims after they die, is trying to deceive its own people with gross delusions … You cannot cover the sun with mud,” the Turkish Defense Ministry said in a statement.

We remind you that on April 18, damage was found on the Imperial Gate of the thousand-year-old Hagia Sophia in Istanbul. It was turned into a mosque in 2020, having previously functioned as a museum.
