The mosque which will be constructed on the five-acre plot at Dhannipur village in Ayodhya will be dedicated to Ahmadullah Shah, a leader of the Indian Rebellion of 1857, Indo Islamic Cultural Foundation (IICF), the trust in charge of building the mosque said.
In February 2020, the Uttar Pradesh Sunni Central Waqf Board accepted the five acres of land provided for the construction of the mosque in Ayodhya.
“The trust is seriously contemplating on the proposal to dedicate the Ayodhya mosque project to the great freedom fighter Maulvi Ahmadullah Shah. We have received suggestions from different platforms and will make an official announcement soon after deliberation”, Times of India quoted Athar Hussain, secretary of IICF as saying.
The formal beginning of the project to construct a mosque will begin from tomorrow, January 26 by unfurling of the national flag and a tree plantation drive.
The tree plantation drive has been planned because the project intends to serve the community in the area and create awareness about climate change as a major challenge to humanity, the IICF had said.
