A Muslim man, proclaiming to be a devotee of Lord Ram, has embarked a long 800 km journey from Chattisgarh to witness the Ram Janambhoomi pujan on August 5.
Mohammad Faiz Khan, who hails from Lord Ram’s mother Kaushalya’s birthplace, has reached Madhya Pradesh so far, a report in ANI stated.
“I am a Muslim from my name and religion but I am a devotee of Lord Rama. If we find out about our ancestors, they were Hindus. Their names might be Ramlal or Shyamlal. We all have Hindu origin whether we go to church or mosque,” Khan told ANI.
Khan considers Lord Ram as the main ancestor of India. He says he is inspired by famous Pakistani poet Allama Iqbal, who had once claimed that a person with a “perfect sight” would feel that Ram is, in fact, the lord of India.
He further goes on to share his experience about community tiff claiming that “some people in Pakistan have created fake IDs with Hindu and Muslim names and are abusing each other to show that all communities are fighting in India.”
Meanwhile, the preparations for the 3-day long bhoomi pujan festivities, scheduled for August 5, have started. During the same, five silver bricks will also be set inside the sanctum sanctorum. The first will be laid by PM Modi.
The five bricks are believed to symbolise the five planets as per the Hindu mythology.
