Ayodhya Mosque named after the freedom fighter Maulvi Ahmadullah Faizabadi
According to the Indo-Islamic Cultural Foundation (IICF), Ahmadullah Shah Faizabadi led the independence movement for more than two years to free Awadh from British rule after the 1857 revolution.
New Delhi: It has been decided to name the mosque and hospital complex to be built in Dhannipur village of Ayodhya after freedom fighter and revolutionary Maulvi Ahmadullah Shah Faizabadi. Ahmadullah Shah Faizabadi died 164 years ago.
According to the Indo-Islamic Cultural Foundation (IICF), Ahmadullah Shah Faizabadi led the independence movement for more than two years to free Awadh from British rule after the 1857 revolution. This is the reason why IICF has decided to start all the schemes in Dhannipur village including mosque, hospital, museum, research center and community kitchen in his name.
Who is Maulvi Ahmadullah Shah Faizabadi?
IICF Secretary Athar Hussain said that on his martyrdom day, we have decided to start all the projects in his name. In January, we dedicated the research center to Maulvi Faizabadi, who was a symbol of Hindu-Muslim brotherhood.
Even after 160 years of the first war of independence, Ahmadullah Shah Faizabadi has not got that right in Indian history yet. Masjid Sarai, Faizabad, which was the cleric's headquarters during the Revolt of 1857, is the only surviving building that preserves his name.
Freedom Fighter Maulvi Faizabadi:
Hussain says, 'When the British agent killed him, his head and torso were buried in different places, so that people could not make his grave a mausoleum. The trustee of the mosque, Captain Afzal Ahmed Khan, told that the fear of Maulvi Faizabadi was clearly visible among the British.
Even after his death, he was afraid that the way he had become a threat to the British while alive, it might not happen even after his death. It is unfortunate that a lot has been written about his courage and valor by British officials like George Bruce Malleson and Thomas Seaton, but even today he has not found a place in school and college curricula.
