Preparations for converting Hagia Sophia into a mosque have started in Turkey, reports the online edition Romfea.gr.
According to what Turkish historian and author Ahmet Anapali claimed that preparations for the conversion of Hagia Sophia into a mosque have already begun. Although he did not reveal his source, he cited a man who is "the most reliable person in the country after Recep Tayyip Erdogan", who told him that "the carpets that will cover 7,000 sq.m. are ready”.
The carpets have been funded by an individual, not by the government.
