Ayodhya: The mosque to be built on five-acre land in Ayodhya’s Dhannipur village awarded by the Supreme Court in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid verdict will be named after the Prophet ‘Mohammad Bin Abdullah’, Indo-Islamic Cultural Foundation said on Thursday.
The IICF, a trust formed to build the mosque and other community facilities on the plot, has decided to change the design of the proposed mosque to the ones adopted in the Middle East countries. The earlier design of the mosque was like the ones built in India.
The new design prepared by a Pune-based architect has been finalised in a meeting held in Mumbai. The meeting was attended by clerics of all sects including Sunni, Shia, Barelvi and Deobandi and representatives from political parties.
The IICF trust has started a fund-raising campaign in different states of the country except Uttar Pradesh for the construction of the mosque in Ayodhya.
Dhannipur village is around 22 km from the spot of the Ram temple in Ayodhya.
