The Uttar Pradesh Sunni Central Waqf Board has formed the IICF, a trust, for the construction of the mosque on a five-acre plot.
A tête-à-tête with the design mind behind the Ayodhya Mosque Complex
Money generated as interest, profit, hoarding of stocks, etc, cannot be utilized to build a mosque, said a senior trustee.
Akhtar, who is from Lucknow, ruled out the possibility of designing the proposed mosque modelled on ancient or Mughal architecture.
One of the main litigants of Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri masjid title suit, Iqbal Ansari had demanded the UPSCWB to avoid naming the mosque after Babar.
The five-acre land allocated to the Sunni Waqf Board falls in Dhannipur village under Sohawal tehsil in Ayodhya district.
