When NewsMobile fact-checked the above post we found the letter to be FAKE.
The Indian High Commission in Dakha in a press release clarified that Prime Minister Narendra Modi did not write any letter to the Chief Justice of India after the Ayodhya Judgement.

Meanwhile, MEA Spokesperson, Raveesh Kumar, retweeting the press release wrote: “We strongly condemn those responsible for deliberately spreading such fake and malicious news, to divide communities, create disharmony and undermine friendship between the people of India and Bangladesh.”
In conclusion, it is clear that PM Modi didn’t write a congratulatory letter to CJI Gogoi.
