Construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya will finally begin after the grand bhoomi pujan (ground breaking ceremony) on Wednesday. Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Ayodhya to attend the grand rituals of the Ram Mandir bhoomi pujan. He was accompanied by several eminent personalities from across the country including Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath.

The historic event comes a year after the Supreme Court ordered for the construction of Ram Mandir at the once disputed site of Babri Masjid in Ayodhya. The event also ends Hindus’ century-long fight for the Ram Mandir in the city where Lord Ram was born.

There are 2,75,000 stones with ‘Jai Shri Ram’ carved on them that have been brought for the bhoomi pujan ceremony. Some of these stones are being used for the rituals of bhoomi pujan that will mark the beginning of the construction of Ram Mandir.

Mohammad Kaif’s reaction:

People across India are celebrating the historic and emotional moment and former India player Mohammad Kaif is not an exception either. The beloved cricketer came up with a heartwarming tweet for his followers on the special occasion. Recalling his childhood days, Mohammad Kaif tweeted:

“Growing up in Allahabad,a city with Ganga-Jamuna culture,I loved watching Ramlila-a tale of compassion,co-exsistence,honour and dignity.Lord Ram saw goodness in everyone and our conduct should reflect his legacy.Don’t allow the agents of hate to come in the way of love and unity.”

Mohammad Kaif will be seen in the dugout soon when the Indian Premier League (IPL) takes place next month. He is a part of Delhi Capitals’ coaching staff. The thirteenth edition of the IPL will start from September 19 while the final will take place on November 10.
