Ayodhya: In what could be more than a secularism, Muslim devotees of Lord Ram are full in pleasure to celebrate the ground-breaking ceremony for the construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya.
The Muslim devotees of Lord Ram will witness the historic Bhoomi Pujan, the foundation ceremony of Ram Mandir, on August 5, reported The Times of India. As per the report, the Muslim Ram Bhakts consider Lord Ram as ‘Imam-e-Hind’ and that their forefathers as Hindus who later converted to Islam.
TOI spoke to one such Ram devotee, Jamshed Khan who said, ” We converted to Islam and embraced a system of prayer according to Islam, but changing our religion doesn’t change our ancestors. We believe Ram was our ancestor and we will celebrate with our Hindu brothers.”
Another devotee Faiz Khan is carrying bricks for the temple from his native village in Chhattisgarh.
Reportedly, the in-charge of Muslim Rashtriya Manch (Awadh) Dr. Anil Singh informed that there are several Muslim Kar sewaks across India who will attend the Bhoomi Pujan celebrations in Ayodhya.
