A luminous inscription was hung on Hagia Sophia with the words “There is no God but Allah.”

The Turkish authorities decided to hang on the Hagia Sophia, which they turned into a mosque, a luminous inscription with the words “There is no God but Allah”, according to the skai.gr.

Between the two minarets, built during the Ottoman Empire, there is a Muslim proclamation made in the form of an LED inscription, with the words “There is no God but Allah.”

Before that, for several days in the media and on television, the placement of the inscription was advertised, which was presented as a “seal” to consolidate the decision to turn the Hagia Sophia into a mosque.

Greek Minister of Development and Investment Adonis Georgiadis said: “What Erdogan did in the Hagia Sophia is kitsch, and he has no one to tell him: – fate has given you one of the greatest monuments of the cultural heritage of mankind, one of the greatest human achievements since man appeared on Earth, and you cover him with flashing lights? Whatever the lightbulb text says … It’s funny, it sucks. I’m ashamed to say. ”

The minister stressed that “in fact, since they talk about the foreign policy of the Turks, Greece in recent years, in the last decade has been steadily gaining points in the diplomatic field, while Turkey is losing them.” “Today,” he added, “Turkey does not speak to practically any of its neighbors. And the fact that Erdogan went so far as to call Israel a terrorist state, do you understand the implications for his relations with the West? “

“Greece played its cards right, it made the right alliances with the US, Israel, Egypt, it plays a key and leading role in the region, and this made Erdogan completely lose his composure. Because he lost the F-35, and we are buying new frigates, we took Rafale, in the summer we will complete the construction of the fence on Evros, and we also guarded the borders in the Aegean Sea, ”the minister emphasized.
