Poonch: On Saturday, National Conference Chief Farooq Abdullah extended congratulations to those involved in the construction of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya, asserting that the sense of brotherhood in India is diminishing and needs revival.

Speaking to the news agency ANI, the former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir expressed his congratulations for the impending inauguration of the Ayodhya Ram Temple, emphasising that Lord Ram is not exclusive to Hindus but belongs to people worldwide.

Abdullah highlighted Lord Ram’s universal message of brotherhood, love, unity, and mutual assistance, urging the nation to revive the dwindling sense of brotherhood. He encouraged people to uphold these values as the temple’s inauguration approaches.

The consecration ceremony, scheduled for January 22, will involve the installation of the idol of Ram Lalla at the grand temple and is expected to be attended by various dignitaries, including Narendra Modi.

Vedic rituals for the Pran-Pratishtha ceremony will commence on January 16, a week before the main event, with a Vedic priest from Varanasi, Lakshmi Kant Dixit, conducting the primary rituals.

Ayodhya will observe the Amrit Mahautsav from January 14 to January 22, featuring a 1008 Hundi Mahayagya to feed thousands of devotees.

Tent cities are being erected to accommodate the expected influx of devotees arriving in Ayodhya for the grand consecration of the Ram Temple. The Ram Janambhoomi Trust has made arrangements for 10,000-15,000 people and scheduled the enthronement of the idol between noon and 12:45pm on January 22.
