He said: “Let’s never allow vertical housing in our provinces and districts” by referring the housing in cities.

Our President Mr. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan participated in our Fatih Municipality’s Promotion Program of the Restoration Projects to Revive the Cultural Heritage. 

Our President Erdoğan said: “Reknitting the history and preparing for today and tomorrow is one of the signs of being worthy of these honorable ancestors. Therefore, I thank both our foundations and the Fatih Municipality. I additionally thank the Fatih Municipality, which restored The Covered Bazaar and bringing it in Istanbul, and continuing its work to bring in the artifacts. I am pleased to see that this municipality, which carries the name of a historical personality like Fatih The Conqueror, carries out the decent services of its municipality” by mentioning that he is proudly following the work of the Fatih Municipality. 

“Those denying the well-known history destroyed the hundreds of masjids.”

Mentioning that there are masjids in the buffer zones as well as mosques in the district of Fatih, the President Erdoğan said: “Those denying the well-known history destroyed the hundreds of masjids. They demolished, and we are constructing and reviving. Which mindset was that destroying the history? It was the mindset of CHP as very well known. Those beautiful artifacts were sometimes used as barns, and they destroyed those. They are proud of it. We are restoring those demolished artifacts and say to the current generation ’Your grandfathers were as such. They did all those and left them to you. And some people came and demolished them.’ I am making a call to young people; did those, who built those and left them to next generations coming after them as their own ancestors, make wrong? They left those and did the mindset of CHP, the demolishing ones, make right? Young people, will you call them to account? I am making a call to all our young brothers and sisters. We will protect our history. And we will build and renew the future on these artifacts. Conquest was not only physical occupancy of this city. The real conquest is to stamp on the city with artifacts as we have done today. That is what we did. Conquest is adding spirit to the city from your spirit and adding life from your essence". 

“We cannot tolerate our cities to be polluted visually with these ugly buildings any longer”

The President Erdoğan, who also mentioned the task for him, said: “Our task is to protect any artifact that we could determine and is precious in terms of our civilization. We are kind of reconquering Istanbul with every artifact we raised, which is a heirloom from our ancestors. The Fatih Municipality is really doing a favorable work. We got through such a period that the Western Civilizations attacked to the beauties of the world in such a way that they kind of challenged the Creator with the great technical opportunities they obtained. This order, which is oriented on higher buildings, greater facilities, more productions, and more profits, has become to threaten the world and the humanity. I repeat my same insistence even today. We, as a nation, concentrated on our matter of existence and consequently lived such crises in the last century that we could not find an opportunity to discuss these matters and to follow a different path. We were attacked by slums, unpleasant buildings, and structures without any artistic and aesthetical value. There is a possibility to show more efforts both for protecting and constructing our Civilization. I tell our Governors and Mayors that let’s never allow vertical housing in our provinces and districts. In this case, horizontal architecture is the basis in our architectural understanding. We must focus on this. Once you focus on this, you will recognize that our cities become more beautiful. We cannot tolerate our cities to be polluted visually with these ugly buildings any longer. We cannot allow our villages and highlands to be attacked by ugly structures”. 

Fatih Mayor Mustafa Demir, who made the opening speech of the program, said in his speech: ‘we restored 320 medium scaled artifacts consisted of mosques and fountains. Furthermore, the projects of some artifacts from our ancestors corresponding to 480 were completed, and the process of some others project are continuing. Above all, we put our tangible cultural artifacts into service, which we completed the restoration of, by refunctioning them in accordance with their founding purposes. Our target is to establish cities that will contribute to the identification and personality, culture and civilization of its people. Cities are places where the human souls shape in flesh and bones. The houses, streets, avenues, squares and historical artifacts of cities are parts of the civilization picture to which they belong. And cities are the most important places protecting the civilization pieces of the past and carrying them to the future’. 

Minister of Family and Social Policies Fatma Betül Sayan Kaya, Governor of Istanbul Vasip Şahin, Mayor of MMI Mevlüt Uysal, and many other guests participated in the program as well as the President Erdoğan.
