Setting an example of communal harmony Hanumangarhi temple has permitted a 300-year-old battered mosque on its land to be rebuilt.
The move comes 24-years after Babri Masjid in Ayodhya was demolished on December 6.
According to reports, the temple has not only allowed reconstruction of mosque and agreed to bear cost but also welcomed Muslims to offer namaz in premises.
The temple raised its helping hand to mosque after a local civic body declared Aalamgiri Masjid’hazardous’ and pasted notice banning entry into building, claim reports.
The Aalamgiri Masjid was built with the consent of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb by one of his generals in Ayodhya in 17th century. The structure and its land situated in an area called Argara came in possession of Hanumangarhi temple of Ayodhya after Nawab Shujauddaulah donated the land to the temple in around 1765, on the condition that namaz would continue at the masjid.
