Ayodhya Ram Mandir Bhoomi Poojan LIVE Updates | Lord Ram our 'Imam-e-Hind', temple will be symbol of brotherhood: Muslim devotees
Hailing Lord Ram as "Imam-e-Hind" (prelate of India), some Muslim devotees of Lord Ram watched the entire bhoomi pujan ceremony in Ayodhya on Wednesday live on their TV sets as they could not go there due to the coronavirus health protocols.
Underlining the country's tradition of syncretic co-existence, they said once the coronavirus situation improves they would visit the temple site and offer their services in its construction.
"It is a moment of joy for us. We' are kar sevaks and consider Lord Ram as 'Imam-e-Hind', Raja Raees, the president of Sunni Social Forum (an organisation working for the Muslims) said.
Zameer Raza, a resident of Bareilly, feels that the day has come after a lot of efforts. "In fact, I feel that it is a double Eid for us."
Shanno Khan said, "Once the COVID-19 crisis is over, and the construction work of Ram temple in Ayodhya commences, I along with my family members and friends will go to participate in kar seva."
