New Delhi: The President (amir) of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH), Maulana Jalaluddin Umari, laid the foundation stone of its mosque in the heart of its sprawling headquarters in Abul Fazl Enclave of Jamia Nagar in the Indian capital.

The inside courtyard of the mosque, when complete, will cover an area of several thousand square yards, and will be able to house thousands of worshippers.

Jamaat believes that the mosque will be able to take care of the needs of the residents of area for the next fifty years. To be true, mosques are the most ubiquitous feature of the area, dotting almost every lane and by-lane, many of them completely air-conditioned.jih mosque expansion final shape jih mosque expansion final shape1 jih mosque expansion jih mosque expansion1 jih mosque expansion2 jih mosque expansion3 jih mosque

While Jamaat officials are saying that the mosque will cost around Rs 8 crore, local property dealers believe, the cost of the land alone is huge. A square yard in the area costs at least Rs 2 lakh and a plot of 100 sqy land costs upwards of rs 2 crore. But Jamaat had bought the piece of land in eighties at a throwaway price. Jamaat runs at least two schools and a hospital in the same area that is known as Dawat Nagar. (Pitures courtesy: Maulana Raziul Islam Nadwi)
