The foundation stone for rebuilding the 118-year-old historical Mosque in Pakistan was laid by the Turkish Red Crescent. The Hazarat Ibrahim historical Mosque located in Hokran Chak in the Jhang district of Punjab will be restored.
General-Secretary of Turkish Red Crescent Huseyin Can addressed the groundbreaking ceremony and said that it was a great honor to restore the historical Mosque of Pakistan.
He said, “The Turkish nation has not forgotten the friendship of Muslims of the sub-continent.”
Adding, “Turkey has always stood behind their Pakistani brothers and sisters in difficult times of flood and earthquake.”
Back in 1901, the Mosque was built by the local people. But its structure has been weakened due to years of neglect. Thus, it is dangerous for the worshippers who pray inside it
Furthermore, the Turkish delegation distributed food to the needy people of the village. Also, they gifted toys and stationery to more than 100 school children.
Earlier, the ambassador of Saudi Arabia to Pakistan Nawaf Bin Said Al-Malki inaugurated a new mosque in Pakistan. It is named King Abdul Aziz Bin Abdulrehman Al-Saud Mosque and is located in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.
