Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi – in a groundbreaking ceremony – paid a visit to Ayodhya on Wednesday and laid a 40kg silver brick in the ‘Bhoomi Pujan’ of the grand temple. The event drew massive attention as citizens from all over the nation stayed glued to their TV sets during the pandemic to get a glimpse of Modi creating history. The event was attended by political and spiritual leaders.

The grand ceremony took place after the Supreme Court had delivered a landmark verdict to hand over the 2.77-acre site claimed by both Hindus and Muslims for a Ram temple in 2019. The apex court had also ordered a five-acre plot at a different site in Ayodhya for a mosque.

While the event created a massive buzz on social media, the post that was loved by citizens was when former India cricketer Mohammad Kaif hailed Lord Ram.

“Growing up in Allahabad, a city with Ganga-Jamuna culture, I loved watching Ramlila-a tale of compassion,co-existence, honour and dignity. Lord Ram saw goodness in everyone and our conduct should reflect his legacy. Don’t allow the agents of hate to come in the way of love and unity,” tweeted Kaif.

Here is how fans hailed Kaif:

“I believe that this grand Ram temple to be built in Ayodhya, like the name of Shri Ram, will reflect the rich heritage of Indian culture. I believe it will inspire the entire humanity till eternity,” PM Modi also said on the occasion.

Not just Kaif, other cricketers like Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Amit Mishra, RP Singh and Harbhajan Singh also tweeted on the event.
