Erdogan orders Kariye Museum to be converted into mosque


Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday ordered another ancient Orthodox church that became a mosque and then a popular Istanbul museum to be turned back into a mosque.

The decision to transform the Kariye Museum into a mosque came just a month after a similarly controversial conversion for the UNESCO World Heritage-recognized Hagia Sophia.

Last November, Turkey’s Supreme Court ruled that the museum should be converted into a Muslim place of worship once again.
