ISLAMABAD: The growing popularity of Army Chief General Raheel Sharif seems to have gone beyond street banners and social media praises, as a group of people in Islamabad have earmarked a land to build a mosque in his name.

A local people in Ghori Town Phase-III, belonging to Khokhar clan, have allocated a piece of their ancestral land to construct a mosque ‘Jamia Masjid Gen Raheel Sharif, Madrassa Jamia Darul Amn.’

These people strongly opposed to Imtiaz Ali alias Taji Khokhar, a notorious person said to be involved in various criminal activities.

Safdar Khokhar, who is heading a local group Tehreek-i-Nijat Qabza Mafia, people in the area had decided to name it after the army chief because he is a national hero and working against corruption and land mafias.

A piece of two kanal belonging to Safdar and his family members has been allocated for the mosque. Safdar told that the whole locality would be contributing to establish the mosque and the seminary.
