A man named Rohit Srivastava has become the first to donate towards the construction of the mosque in Ayodhya.
Rohit, a Hindu by birth, is a law faculty employee of the Lucknow University. He donated an amount of Rs 21,000 on Saturday.
“Yesterday was a joyous day for us when we accepted the first donation outside of trustees, and especially because it came from Lucknow-based Rohit Shrivastava. This act by him has set a perfect example of Lucknow, or Awadh’s, Ganga-Jamuni tehzeeb,” Athar Hussain, the Secretary of the IICF told ANI.
“I come from a generation that is rooted in syncretism, where religious barriers blur. I don`t celebrate Holi or Diwali without my Muslim friends and they don`t celebrate Eid without me. This is the story of crores of Hindus and Muslims in India. I appeal to members of the Hindu community to come forward and donate for the mosque to send out a message that Muslims are our brothers.” Srivastava said.
In February 2020, the Uttar Pradesh government had announced the allotment of land at Dhannipur in Sadar tehsil of Faizabad, about 25 km from the Ram Janambhoomi complex.
