CONSTRUCTION YET TO BEGIN ON AYODHYA’S NEW MOSQUE

Ayodhya: Barbed-wire fencing and a board put up by the Indo-Islamic Cultural Foundation are the only indicators that a mosque complex is set to come up at this spot in Dhannipur village near Ayodhya. The board bears an illustration of the proposed mosque for which the Supreme Court had ordered allocation of a five-acre plot. But three years after the apex court settled the Ram JanmabhoomiBabri Masjid land dispute, there are no signs of any building activity. The Ayodhya Development Authority is yet to approve the trust’s proposal. But the trust expects that this will now happen soon. The Indo-Islamic Cultural Foundation is a trust tasked by the UP Sunni Central Waqf Board with the mosque’s construction. A pothole-riddled road breaking off from the Lucknow-Faizabad highway leads to Dhannipur village, 16 km from district headquarters. Narrow roads lined with houses, a veterinary hospital and a new farmers’ centre give way to the large vacant plot of land. Until recently, the land was used for farming. It now has a 10-foothigh barbed wire fence. When the land was allocated for the mosque, the villagers had hoped for a brighter future. Mohammad Gamu (60), whose home overlooks the site, said, “Nothing has been done in three years. Not a single brick has been laid.” Gamu’s wife complained that she has not received any benefit of PM Awas Yojana, Ujjwala scheme or Kisan Samman Nidhi.
