The mosque to come up in Ayodhya pursuant to the Indian Supreme Court verdict in the Ram Janmabhoomi case may have a shape that is different from the traditional shape of mosques and will not be named after any emperor or king.

Secretary and spokesperson of the Indo-Islamic Cultural Foundation (IICF) Athar Hussain came up with the information on Wednesday.

"A mosque measuring 15,000 square feet will be built in Dhannipur village. It will be of the same size as that of the Babri mosque. The shape of the mosque may be completely different from that of other mosques. It may be square-shaped like the Kaaba Sharif in Mecca, as hinted by architect SM Akhtar,” said Athar Hussain.

The Uttar Pradesh Sunni Central Waqf Board formed the Indo-Islamic Cultural Foundation Trust to build a new mosque in Ayodhya following an order from the Supreme Court of India. From then on, plans were made to build a mosque at Dhannipur, about 25 km from the site of the Ram temple. There is a dargah along with agricultural land in the government farm in the area where the mosque will be built on 15,000 square foot area.
