Kuala Lumpur: Last week, Indo-Islamic Cultural Foundation (IICF) revealed the blueprint of the mosque in replace of Babri Masjid in Ayodhya in India’s northern state of Uttar Pradesh, which was demolished by Hindu extremists in 1992. Keeping in mind the Islamic values, the mosque will be very special and unique as it will provide a glimpse of humanity.
The mosque will be built 22 KM away from the decades-long disputed land of Indian history, which was resolved by the Supreme Court of India last year in November 2019, handing over the site to Hindu community to build their temple.
Professor SM Akhtar, who is dean of the architecture department of India’s renewed Jamia Millia Islamia University, is handling the complete project.
According to reports, the design of the mosque is special because it will not follow old Indian Islam structure- like domes, minarets or arches.
Along with the mosque, which will be four times bigger than Babri Masjid, a 300-bed hospital, library and a common Kitchen will also be built to serve the society.
Keeping in mind challenges of climate change, zero carbon footprint will be the defining theme of the mosque complex, IICF said.
More and more technology will be used during the construction of the mosque’s complex. Solar plants will be installed and thousands of plants from across the world will be planted nearby construction site.
More than 2,000 people can offer Namaz (prayer) at a time in the mosque.
According to reports, the construction of the mosque is likely to begin from 15 August 2021- the day when India celebrates its Independence Day.
