Mughal 'descendant' gives NOC for building Ram Temple to Hindu Mahasabha, says will lay foundation
HYDERABAD/NEW DELHI: Prince Yakub Habeebuddin Tucy, who claims to be the descendant of last Mughal emperor Bahadur Shah Zafar, has today given a go-ahead to Hindu community over construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya.
He handed over a 'no objection certificate' (NOC) to Swami Chakrapani Maharaj at a meeting on Sunday.
Chakrapani Maharaj is the head of the All India Hindu Mahasabha. Tucy and Mahasabha chief had discussions on the issue and after handing over the letter, they exchanged sweets as well.
Tucy later informed that he has also vowed to give a brick of gold for the proposed Ram temple. He said that he apologised for the past acts. Subsequently, Chakrapani Maharaj felicitated Prince Tucy.
On this occasion, the Mahasabha office-bearers and members were present. Tucy said that he would be part of the construction of the temple and would lay the foundation stone too.
Terming the meet as historic, Chakrapani Maharaj and his supporters applied 'tilak' on Tucy's forehead. The slogans of 'Jai Shree Ram' were also raised on the occasion.
Tucy claims to be Mughal descendant though this claim has often been contested. Of late, he has been issuing statements and been involved with saints and seers.
