The Sunni Central Board’s Indo-Islamic Cultural Foundation has announced the design of a mosque to be built in Dhannipur, Ayodhya. Interestingly, the oval design of the mosque announced by the trust has no dome. The layout and design of this magnificent mosque has been made public.
Architects, along with every member of the foundation, were also involved in Saturday’s meeting on the design of the proposed mosque in Dhannipur. Those who could not attend the meeting were virtually attached to the meeting. The meeting also sealed the design of mosque construction, hospital, research center, community kitchen and museum.
The board has taken decisions to a large extent on all these issues, but it will be announced in due course, as to who will lay the foundation stone of the mosque, how will the construction of the mosque be carried out in any way. It is overseen by the Indo-Islamic Cultural Foundation. Apart from the mosque and research institute, there are plans to build a multi-specialty hospital, public restaurant and Qutub Khana i.e. a modern library in the mosque premises.
Athar Hussain, a spokesman for the foundation, said the 5-acre center would house a 300-bed multi-specialty hospital. Apart from that, two thousand people will be able to offer prayers in the mosque that will be built. The shape of the mosque is circular. The construction work of a mosque will be started on January 26 in village Dhannipur in Chaudhahi of Ayodhya.
According to sources in the UP Sunni Central Waqf Board, all preparations to start construction of the mosque complex on the 5 acres of land allotted following the Supreme Court order are in the final stages. A map has also been prepared. Now with the formality of Shilanyas, construction of other buildings in the mosque premises will also begin. In the Babri Masjid case, the Supreme Court had ordered the construction of a temple of Lord Rama at Ram Janmabhoomi in Ayodhya, while 5 acres of land was allotted in a separate place for the construction of the mosque.
