President and Chairman of AKP Typ ErdoganIn his speech at the opening program of “Ayasofia Fatima Madrasa”, “The spirit that transformed Hagia Sophia into a museum by tearing it from its original identity couldn’t stand this madrassa either.” Said. Erdogan, “Today, at this opening, we are experiencing the happiness of not only preserving trust, but also removing another shameful stain that the one-sided spirit has given to our history.” He said.
President Erdogan attended the opening program of the “Resurrected” Hagia Sophia Fatima Madrasa. In a speech criticizing the Republic’s first few years, Prime Minister Erdogan “A fan of Byzantium, more Western than Western, and in conflict with national values, this spirit has not valued our cultural treasures for thousands of years. Like Hagia Sophia Fatimadrasa, historical relics were sometimes destroyed by negligence, sometimes by the understanding of revanchists, and valuable internal relics were lost. Everything that belongs to our civilization tried to liquidate by calling it a backwards example. He said.
The headings of Prime Minister Erdogan’s statement are:
I hope these blessed days will lead to peace and tranquility. At the Hagia Sophia Fati Madrasa I opened, I bring another piece to our city that wants to erase the traces.
After the conquest of Istanbul, this place was used as the first madrassa in the city next to Hagia Sophia. Ali Kuşçu gave a lecture in Madrasa. Madrasa’s first teacher was Molla Hüsrev.
Madrasa continued its educational services until 1924. After being used as an orphanage for a while, it was demolished because it ruined the image.
Unfortunately, the spirit of separating Hagia Sophia from its original identity into a museum could not tolerate this madrassa.
This historic madrassa, the foundation of Fati and the center of science for centuries, has been quietly removed.
For some time Turkey has not been able to do a good test in preserving and keeping the relics, cultural and civilized heritage of our ancestors alive. In particular, the one-party spirit has a very high record in this regard. What was done in the name of Westernization during this period caused many scars on both the structure of our country and the memory of our country. A fan of Byzantium, more Western than Western, and in conflict with national values, this spirit has not valued our cultural treasures for thousands of years. Like Hagia Sophia Fatimadrasa, historical relics were sometimes destroyed by negligence, sometimes by the understanding of revanchists, and valuable internal relics were lost. Hundreds of mosques were sold, rented and used as museums, warehouses and barns. Especially in Fati Sur … this is where there are nearly 800 mosques, and unfortunately most of these mosques have been demolished, sold and turned into barns … in an era of a single spirit. Our Quran course has been closed and the door to the center of our knowledge, wisdom and wisdom has been closed. Everything that belongs to our civilization tried to be eliminated by calling it a backward sample. Today, at this opening, we are experiencing happiness that not only protects trust, but also removes another shameful stain that the spirit of a single party has given to our history.
The work we used is a reconstructed version of the madrassa, which was destroyed 86 years ago, and remains true to the architectural features and materials of the time. Hagia Sophia Fatty Madrasa, who has nurtured countless scholars for 4.5 centuries, will now function as an educational center. Operated by Fatih Sultan Mehmet University’s application and research center, the center will train tomorrow’s scholars, researchers and scientists.
The late Cemil Meriç uses the same expression. “Trees live with their roots, people …” The roots that keep the country alive and survive the destructive and destructive effects of time are the depth of culture. Our country has a multifaceted and rich cultural property. This cultural treasure, which has evolved over time, has made it possible to exist for centuries, despite all the attacks and destructions that our ancestors have experienced.
For the past 20 years, we have sought to revive ancient values and strengthen our relationship with our roots.
We strive to be a bridge from the past to the present in all fields. The more you maintain contact with the Fountain of Life, the faster you will reach your goals and the more confident you will be in the future.
Especially now that Western culture and lifestyle are pervasive throughout the world, there is no other way to maintain our existence by preserving our true identity.
In this regard, important obligations lie in all segments of our country, from science and culture experts to historians, politicians, local governments, artists, foundations and NGOs.
While our government plays our part, I want to remind you that you will stay alive and alive in these places.
