Preparations for Bhoomi Poojan have started and the Ram TempleBhoomi Poojan will be held on August 5 in Ayodhya. An appeal has been made by Shri Ramjanmabhoomi Trust that all the Ram bhaktas living in India and other countries on 5 August should perform bhajan-kirtan, Aarti from 11.30 am to 12.30 am. Light a lamp in your house, locality, market, monastery and ashram.
The activities related to the construction of the mosque in ‘Ayodhya’ have cooled down amidst loud preparations for the Bhoomi Poojan of the Ram Temple on August 5 in Ayodhya.
Uttar Pradesh’s Sunni Central Waqf Board, which has been a major Muslim party in a lawsuit related to the ownership of the disputed site, has been allotted five acres of land by the government on the direction of the Supreme Court, but the formalities are still pending. Apart from this, the trust formed to take decisions related to the construction of the mosque, research center and others on the allotted land has also not been formed.
Board President Zufar Ahmad Farooqui said on Tuesday that the government has allotted five acres of land at Dhannipur village in Sohawal tehsil in Ayodhya district on the direction of the Supreme Court, but due to the lockdown, some formalities remain to be completed.
“Iqbal Ansari, who was a party member of Babri Masjid, said that Sunni Waqf Board will decide what to do for the land in Dhannipur, but we have already demanded the hospital”
Farooqui said that the trust to be set up in connection with the construction of a mosque, Indo-Islamic Research Center, hospital and library on the land that the board has got is yet to be established. It will have 15 members, out of which the names of barely 8 members have been decided. However, he refused to reveal the names of these members.
The chairman of the board said that such people will be placed in the trust who are progressive thinking and can raise resources for the mosque and other construction works. It is expected that the trust will be formed after the Bhoomi Poojan of Ram temple in Ayodhya. He informed that the funding for the mosque and other construction works will be done with public support or on a personal level, the decision will be taken by the trust itself.
On the question of whether Muslim society is less interested in joining the trust, he said that more people have not been contacted in connection with the trust. However, one thing is certain that in the temple-mosque issue there was politics from both sides. She has cooled off after the Supreme Court’s decision came.
On the question of whether he expected the support of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board or any other leading Muslim organization on the matter of raising resources for the construction of mosques, Islamic research centers, hospitals and libraries, Farooqui said he would not Think.
He said that the Muslim Personal Law Board, which also includes Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind and other major Muslim organizations, had already announced that it would not take land elsewhere in lieu of the Babri Masjid, so they do not expect that these organizations will be able to get help in construction on five acres of land.
Significantly, the Supreme Court in its historic judgment on November 9 last year ordered the construction of a Ram temple at the disputed site of Ayodhya and to give 5 acres of land to Muslims for the construction of a Mosque at a prominent place in Ayodhya itself. In compliance with this, the Sunni Waqf Board was allotted land in Dhannipur village in Sohawal tehsil of Ayodhya last February.
