Foundation Stone to be Laid on Republic Day For Ayodhya Mosque.


n January 26th the 71st Republic Day of India next year the foundation of the Ayodhya mosque complex will be laid at the Dhannipur village in Sohaval Tehsil of Ayodhya which is 20Km away from the existing Ram Janmabhoomi complex. As per the directive given by the Supreme Court on November 9, 2019 judgment, the mosque will be built over five acres of land given to the Uttar Pradesh Sunni Waqf Board at a ‘prominent’ place in the town of the state in Uttar Pradesh.

After the formation of a trust by the Sunni Waqf Board named Indo-Islamic Cultural Foundation (IICF) for the construction of the mosque the foundation would be laid in exactly six months. The Secretary of the IICF trust Athar Hussain said “The trust chose January 26, 2021, for laying the foundation of the Ayodhya mosque as on this day our constitution came into effect more than seven decades ago. Our Constitution is based on pluralism, which is the leitmotif of our mosque project.”

On December 19 the blueprint of the mosque complex will be displayed. The new mosque complex will now comprise a multi-specialty hospital, community kitchen and a library area. The final plan for the project has been approved by Professor S.M. Akhtar the chief architect. He said “The mosque will have a capacity to hold 2000 namazis at a time and the structure will be round-shaped.”

The Chief architect further added “The new mosque will be bigger than Babri masjid, but won’t replicate the structure which once stood in the Ram Janmabhoomi premises. The hospital of course will hold the center stage on the five-acre land. It will serve people in the true spirit of Islam as taught by the prophet in his last sermon 1400 years ago. The hospital will be in sync in the architect of the mosque, replete with calligraphy and Islamic symbols. It will house a 300-bed specialty unit, where free treatment will be given.”

In the year 1992, December 6 the Babri masjid was brought down by the ‘kar sevaks’ who insisted that the Ayodhya mosque was built on the site of an ancient Ram temple.
