Hagia Sophia 

The Turkish museum has finally been converted in a mosque again. It was built in 537 by Emperor Justinian I as a church. It was converted to a mosque by Sultan Mohammad 2 in 1453. Then the first president of Turkey, Mustafa Kamal declared it as a museum. Finally, the current president of Turkey, Tayib Erdogen has converted back into a mosque despite the threats of US and Greek. Consequently, Turkey is more worried about her sovereignty than pleasing a country like USA that changes its allies like seasons. Pakistan can learn a lesson from this act that we must build our own status and follow our motto of “Faith” than trying to inspire or listen to others to make them happy.
