The largest humanitarian organization, Turkish Red Crescent is going to rebuild a 118-year-old mosque in Punjab, Pakistan.
On Monday, the Turkish organization has laid the foundation stone of Hazrat Ibrahim mosque. The mosque is located at village Hokran Chak in the Jhang district of Punjab, Pakistan.
While addressing the ceremony, Huseyin Can, General-Secretory of Turkish Red Crescent said, it is an honor for us to restructure the historic mosque and further strengthen the relationship between two brotherly Muslim countries.
Referring to Pakistan’s support in the Turkish war of independence, the General-Secretory said, “The Turkish nation has not forgotten the friendship of Muslims of the sub-continent”.
“Turkey has always stood behind their Pakistani brothers and sisters in difficult times of flood and earthquake,” he added.
The local people of Jhang built the mosque in 1901.
However, due to poor maintenance and negligence of the historic landmark, worshippers couldn’t pray in the mosque. The weak structure and building of the mosque make it dangerous; people are unable to perform any religious duties.
The delegation from turkey further distributed stationery, toys, and gifts to more than 100 schoolchildren. Moreover, food was distributed to the needy and poor people of the village by the delegation.
