Lucknow, October 17: As a token of honor, Shia Board commits to gift 10 silver arrows for Lord Ram Temple in Ayodhya. The statue of Lord Ram is proposed under UP Government that is expected to cost Rs 330 Crores.

After embracing Yogi Adityanath government’s step in building a 100-meter high statue of Lord Ram in Ayodhya on the banks of Saryu river, the Uttar Pradesh Shia Board has announced to gift 10 silver arrows as a mark of respect.

“UP government’s decision to erect a statue of Lord Ram is commendable. In keeping with the Ganga-Jamuni tehezeeb of Awadh, these silver arrows would be just a token of admiration and esteem in which Shias hold Lord Ram,” he said in a letter to UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

Chairman of the Shia Central Waqf Board, Waseem Rizvi put forth that it would be a stance of pride for Indians for the high budgeted statue would mark Uttar Pradesh on the world map.

The response comes back few days after the All India Muslim Personal Law Board members Zafaryab Jilani and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi criticised the UP government’s plan.

Both had stated the Ram Temple as an unlawful construction, appending it to be a violation of secular principles for the government to comprehend in such state projects.

Adding to it, he spoke on a historical aspect that the Nawabs of the region had shown high respect towards the temples in Ayodhya in 1739.

Chairman Waseem Rizvi had stressed on the construction of the Lord Ram temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya in the past while being adjoining the Samajwadi Party leader and former UP minister Azam Khan.
