No there will be no Babri hospital constructed on the 5-acre land allotted to the Sunni Waqf Board by Supreme Court as yet. No such announcement
As per the official media release the Sunni Waqf Board, it states that they had constructed a trust named as Indo Islamic foundation. This trust proposes to build a mosque, cultural research center along with public utilities which will include a community kitchen, library and a hospital on the allotted land in Ayodhya. We also spoke to Syed Mohammad Shoeb who is the CEO of the Sunni Waqf Board. He adds that the board has not taken any final decision about the construction. “The hospital, library, research center, that people are talking about are all proposals, we are yet to take any final decision,”.
They have also released the press note calling this a false rumor, denying it-
