Egypt's Islamic body reverses Ottomans 'occupied' Istanbul remark
Egypt's Dar al-Ifta caused a social media uproar when it referred to Islamic conquest of Constantinople as 'occupation'.
........................................................
First of all where does the Quran allows conversion of Churches into mosques? Where does the Quran allows aggression and occupation of other countries?

So first they issue a Fatwa then reverse it based on Hadith:

"The Hagia Sophia was built as a church during the Byzantine period in AD537, and it remained for 916 years until the Ottomans occupied Istanbul [Constantinople] in 1453, turning the building into a mosque," said the Egyptian authority responsible for issuing religious edicts.

Reversal after uproar:

"As for the conquest of Constantinople, it is a great Islamic conquest that was preached by The Prophet, may God's prayers and peace be upon him, and it was carried out by the great Ottoman Sufi Sultan Mohammed al-Fateh,"
