Foundation for Ayodhya mosque to be laid on R-Day

Ayodhya, Dec 17 (TIWN) On the 71st anniversary of India as a Republic, the foundation will be laid for the much-awaited mosque in Ayodhya on the five acres of land mandated by Supreme Court following the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid final verdict.

The mosque is coming up over five acre land given to the UP Sunni Waqf Board as per the directives of the Supreme Court in its November 2019 judgment. The foundation would be laid exactly six months after the Sunni waqf board set up a trust — Indo-Islamic Cultural Foundation -- for the construction. “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,” said Athar Hussain, secretary of Indo- Islamic Cultural Foundation.
