Lucknow: With over Rs 1,000 crore raised so far for the Ram temple in Ayodhya, the crowdfunding drive has not only seen participation by Hindu devotees, but by the Muslim community as well.

Over 80 orphans from the Saadatganj orphanage of the All India Shia Orphanage in Lucknow and people from the minority community donated more than Rs 1.5 lakh for the construction of the Ram temple. The donations ranged from Rs 1,100 to Rs 10 and Rs 100.

Muslim headworkers said such an effort would send a message of unity and brotherhood in the country. Speaking to India Today TV, according to Aarif, a 12-year-old boy all religions are same. “No one has got a stamp of any religion from God and we should come together to contribute for each other’s religious work,” he said.

Former chairman of Shia Waqf Board, Wasim Rizvi, said: “Such an initiative will send a message of unity to those who work to divide people in the name of religion.” RSS executive member, Indresh Kumar, said a new chapter of mutual harmony would be written with the construction of the Ram temple.

The Shri Ram Janambhoomi Teerth Kshetra trust is conducting a mass contact and fund-raising campaign from January 15 till February 27 for the construction of the grand temple in Ayodhya.

The trust’s Secretary Champat Rai was quoted as saying: “The accounts of the trust in three nationalized banks show an amount of over Rs 1,000 crore. Nearly 1.50 lakh VHP activists are collecting funds for the Ram temple. 37 activists have been deputed to deposit the donations in the bank accounts.”
