Blueprint in this week of establishment stone for Ayodhya mosque to be laid on Republic Day

“The Trust chose January 26, 2021 for laying the foundation stone of the Ayodhya mosque as on this day our Constitution came into effect over seven decades ago. Our Constitution is based on pluralism, which is the leitmotif of our mosque project,” said Athar Hussain, secretary of the Indo-Islamic Cultural Foundation (IICF).

The plan of the mosque to supplant the Babri Masjid will be divulged this Saturday and its establishment laid on Republic Day on the five-section of land designated for it here, individuals from the Trust framed for its development said.

“The Trust chose January 26, 2021 for laying the foundation stone of the Ayodhya mosque as on this day our Constitution came into effect over seven decades ago. Our Constitution is based on pluralism, which is the leitmotif of our mosque project,” said Athar Hussain, secretary of the Indo-Islamic Cultural Foundation (IICF).

The IICF was set up by the Sunni Waqf Board a half year prior to fabricate the mosque.

The diagram of the mosque complex, which will incorporate a multi-claim to fame clinic, a network kitchen and a library, will be disclosed by the IICF on December 19 as the arrangement for the venture has been finished by its main modeler, Professor S M Akhtar.

“The mosque will have a capacity to hold 2,000 namazis at a time, and the structure will be round-shaped,” Akhtar said.

The Supreme Court on November 9 a year ago had made ready for the development of a Ram Temple at the contested Ram Janambhoomi-Babri Masjid site at Ayodhya, and guided the Center to designate an elective five-section of land plot to the Sunni Waqf Board for building another mosque at a “conspicuous” place in the town in Uttar Pradesh.

The state government distributed a five-section of land in Dhannipur town in Sohaval Tehsil of Ayodhya.

“The new mosque will be bigger than Babri Masjid, but won’t be a lookalike of the structure. The hospital will take centre stage in the complex. It will serve humanity in the true spirit of Islam as taught by the Prophet in his last sermon 1,400 years ago,” Akhtar said.

“The hospital won’t be a usual concrete structure but will be in sync with the architecture of the mosque, replete with calligraphy and Islamic symbols. It will house a 300-bed speciality unit, where doctors will work with missionary zeal to provide free treatment to the ailing,” he said, adding that “the mosque will be self efficient for power as it is designed based on solar energy and a natural temperature maintenance system.”

“When we talk about the hospital project at Dhannipur, one thing is sure that it will be a multi speciality hospital,” Hussain said. The people group kitchen will serve great quality suppers two times every day to take into account the requirements of sustenance of the destitute individuals living close by, he added.

“We can establish a nursing and paramedic college to provide human resources to the hospital. We can manage doctors from local resources from Faizabad, and for specialised needs in terms of critical surgeries, we have a group of doctor friends in prominent government and private institutions who want to offer their services,” he said.

“We are looking forward to corporate funding for the hospital. There are many donors who are willing to contribute when we have 80 G approval. After that, we will go for FCRA and seek foreign funds from Muslims of Indian origin,” the IICF secretary added.

The Babri Masjid was annihilated in December 1992 by “kar sevaks” who asserted that the mosque in Ayodhya was based on the site of an antiquated Ram sanctuary.
