Century Old Turkish Mosque In Punjab Under Renovation

News Desk

The Turkish Red Crescent laid the first foundation stone as part of the restoration process of a 118 year old historical mosque in Punjab

The mosque known as ‘Hazarat Ibrahim Mosque’ is located in the village Hokran Chak in the Jhang district of Punjab. The General-Secretary of Turkish Red Crescent Huseyin Can stated it was a huge honour to be restoring the historical mosque in a brotherly Muslim country.

“The Turkish nation has not forgotten the friendship of Muslims of the sub-continent,” he said, in referral to Pakistan’s assistance in the Turkish War of Independence.

The mosque was built by locals in 1901, and with years of negligence the structure weakened, making it too risky for worshippers to be praying inside.

Alongside commencing the mosque’s renovation, the Turkish delegation also distributed food among the needy people of the village and gifted toys and stationery to over 100 schoolchildren present.
