The foundation for re-construction of two mosques in the vicinity of new secretariat complex was laid by prominent clerics on Thursday, five months after they were pulled down during demolition of the old buildings in July 2020. 

There were two mosques in the complex including Masjid-e-Mohtammadi Jamia, popularly known as Secretariat mosque and Masjid-e-Hashmi. The foundation was laid by Vice-chancellor of Jamia Nizamia Maulana Mufti Khaleel Ahmed and city's Ulema-Mashaeq in the presence of Home Minister Mohammed Mahmood Ali, State Waqf Board chairman Mohammed Saleem, AIMIM floor leader Akbaruddin Owaisi and other leaders of TRS and AIMIM.

After the ceremony the delegations offered namaz. However, it was kept simple and the public was not allowed in view of the construction of the new complex. For the mosques the government has allotted 1,500 sq yards which will be re-built at a cost of Rs 2.9 crore. Ali said the government will fulfil its promises and the mosques would be among the most beautiful in the country; construction would start as the earliest. 

Chief Minister KCR had promised to re-build the place of worship on more spacious sites and at the government's cost. On September 5, he announced that the government will re-build the mosques and a temple along with a church in the new complex.
