Hundreds of children shout “Allahu Akbar” in Hagia Sophia (video)

Hundreds of Turkish children shouted “Allahu Akbar” in the cradle of Greek Orthodoxy Hagia Sophia. On the video recording the event, someone is heard giving the signal word “takbeer” to start a prayer with “Allah is great.” The children shout.


The event “Hagia Sophia Summer School Meeting” was reportedly organized by the Turkish Youth Foundation TÜGVA, where the son of president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Bilal, has a high administrative position.

A few days ago, on the anniversary of the conversion of Hagia Sophia into a mosque in July 2020, Turkish media referred to the two special editions as well as the documentary presented by the Directorate of Communications of the Turkish Presidency.

Erdogan wrote the foreword to one of the two books, recalling that a presidential decree on July 10, 2020 ensured the reopening of Hagia Sophia as a mosque.

“Glory be to Allah, who gave us the opportunity to restore the symbol of the Fall, the will and trust of the Conqueror, Hagia Sophia, to its original state 86 years later. May the resurrection of Hagia Sophia be once again beneficial”, Erdogan reportedly posted in a message on Twitter.

  1. should be not so difficult to find a mosque in greece. 100 kids singing orthodox chants….

    • They are chanting to the same god as the christians and the jews, they also believe in the old testament just like all. focus on the similarities/facts….nothing can hurt you unless you give it the power….

  2. Well, you gotta distract people with something because your economy is going down the drain. But what was it that Erdogan said again? “The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers…”

    Seems like these children are his soldiers. To be sacrificed on the altar of the recreation of the Ottoman Empire. “You gotta get them when they are young”, aka “Who has the youth, has the future”. A 20th century dictator with a funny mustache said that.
