Cracks Found In Jama Masjid Dome, Shahi Imam Seeks Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Help For Urgent Repair

NEW DELHI, INDIA - DECEMBER 16: Tariq Bukhari, General Secretary of Jama Masjid Advisory Council with Divisional Commissioner Manisha Saxena and Nidhi Srivastava, IAS, DM (Central) with other officials visited Jama Masjid for inspection of damage of the Monument, at Jama Masjid, on December 16, 2017 in New Delhi, India. The 17th century mosque built by Mughal emperor Shahjahan has started degenerating for the lack of regular maintenance. It was last repaired 10 years ago by the ASI on the Delhi HCs orders. Mosques custodian, Delhi Wakf Board, has no funds to restore it. The Shahi Imam of the Masjid, Syed Ahmed Bukhari, says he had written a letter last year to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, seeking help for the urgent repair of the structure, and made several appeals to the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) telling them that the situation is fast becoming dire.
