How the Turkish mosque in Saint Petersburg has become the ‘new mosque’

About Us

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been criticised for the creation of a new mosque in the town.

Turkish President Erdoğan’s government says the new mosque will be a place for Muslims to worship and to carry out their religious duties.

A local councillor says it will be used to provide space for worship for Muslim families and to provide a sanctuary for people who have fled persecution and violence in their home countries.

The mosque will also be used for interfaith worship.

It is expected to cost $1 million and will be built in the village of Fort Worth, Texas.
