How keen devotees are about the Ram temple in Ayodhya can be gauged from the fact that Varanasi alone has contributed Rs 3 crore for the construction of the promised temple. On howsoever small a scale, Muslims are taking part in this campaign. Iqra Anwar Khan, a student of law in Mughal Sarai, has donated Rs 11,000 for the construction of the Ram temple.

Khan had got ‘Sri Ram’ tattooed on her hand on the day Prime Minister Narendra Modi had ceremoniously laid the foundation stone of the temple.

Iqra says Lord Rama is her ancestor, as He is to all Indians. “This is my gilhari prayas — the legendary help in building the bridge to Lanka by a squirrel — in building a grand Ram temple,” she said.

Iqra has appealed to the Muslim community to cooperate in building the temple of Sri Rama.

Sant Swami Jitendrananda reacted to the gesture, saying, “The amount donated by Iqra is welcome. At the time when the dedication campaign for the construction of Sri Ram temple is going on, this message from the student of law to her community is significant. The land of India belongs to Sri Rama. He is what defines the nation. Rama is also the ancestor of all Indian people.”

The stage is set for the construction of Ram Mandir at Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh tomorrow. The Mandir will be built on a 2.77-acre site where the 16th century Babri Masjid stood before it was razed by Hindu activists because it was built on the ruins of a temple marking the birthplace of Sri Rama.

Meanwhile, another Muslim woman, Zahara Begum, organizer of the Tahera Trust, is on an unusual mission.

She is exhorting fellow members of the Muslim community to contribute funds towards the construction of a grand temple for Hindu god Lord Rama at Ayodhya.
