- Four times bigger than Babri masjid
- 300 bed hospital six times size of mosque
- Will be completed in 2 years at Dhannipur Village
Ayodhya: After Supreme Court’s verdict to allot five acres of land to UP Sunni Central Waqf Board, they formed a Trust in the name of Indo-Islamic Cultural Foundation(IICF) to construct the mosque. They unveiled the design of the mosque and its features through video on Saturday along with Prof.SM Akhtar of Jamia Milia Islamia.
According to him, design of mosque will be egg shaped without any dome, and solar power will be installed in the mosque and a community kitchen and library will be set up at the complex. Nearly 2000 people can do ‘Namaaz’ at a time and a 300-bed hospital will be constructed in the five acres of land along with mosque. Hospital will mainly focus on the needs of the people like children suffering from malnourishment and expectant mothers.
Initial plan was to start construct the mosque from Jan 26th, but now it looks to be difficult as map approval may take time. So they are in a plan to start construction on 15 August 2021 on the eve of Independence Day as per IICF.
Islamic traditions won’t accept big functions for foundation stone laying, so they are not inviting any big leaders like UP CM Adityanath as per sources. Name of the masjid will be Dhannipur Masjid and not any name of Nawab or after any king according to IICF Secretary Hussain. Eco friendly mosque is planned with plants brought from across the world will be planted and hospital will be ground plus four floors with 300 bed.
Bank accounts have been created for contributions for the construction of mosque and other structures. Peculiar feature of the building will be with Zero energy as to convey a message on climate change.
