Indian Secularism: Rebuilding Babri Mosque

By -Dr. Abdul Ruff

The 06 December, the sad anniversary of demolition of historic Babri Mosque belonging to Muslims, is one of the most important Black Days for India, its Constitution and its cherished democratic and secular values. Interestingly, Not only BJP and its Hindutva allies but even so-called secular parties like Congress party with its hidden nexus with Hindutva RSS also do not stress the importance of secularism for the unity of Indian nation. They have common agenda- anti-Islamism. But in targeting Muslims and Mosques, the BJP has the Hindu vote bank agenda.

Like cricket matches, even anti-Islamism is also efforts by most major and minor parties of the country. No leader talks about keeping the word given by Indian government to Indians and international community on rebuilding the historic Babri Mosque. That is unfortunate and indeed a very sad commentary not just on democracy and Indian secularism but, worse, the image of Indian state about its promises to the world.

Indian rulers, political leaders, media lords, and even judges seem to collectively hate India and its people and they promote everything that goes against secularism and genuine democracy by operating to promote their religion and impose it on others, jointly destroy Islamic monuments and mosques and defend the Hindu militant criminals.
That is the fate of India.

India got freedom from Great Britain on a midnight and maybe therefore it decided to shamelessly throw out the Imam and other Muslims from the Babri mosque on a midnight and later Indian government of Nehru shut the doors of the historic mosque for regular prayers by Muslims in a way as to show its power to the hapless Muslims of India. Hindus claim full ownership of independent India which actually belongs to all its citizens.

In fact, ruling Hindu fanaticism began along with regaining its sovereignty.

On December 06 ghastly destruction of historic Babri Mosque sponsored by BJP-VHP-RSS and backed by Indian state and regime, among other anti-Islamic elements, will complete 24 long years but so far Indian government and judiciary do not seem interested in delivery the judgment because the mosque belongs to Muslims and Hindu criminals must undergo punishments.

The Babri Masjid (Mosque of Babur), was a mosque in Ayodhya, India. Located in Faizabad district, it was one of the largest mosques in the Uttar Pradesh state. According to the mosque's inscriptions, it was built in 1528–29 CE (935 AH) by Mir Baqi, on orders of the Mughal emperor Babur (after whom it is named). Since then Babri Mosque had been a glittering symbol of unity until India became free, though some organized fanatic Hindus claimed there should not be a mosque at Ayodhya where hero of epic novel Ramayana was supposedly born and died as a king. There were sporadic attacks on the Mosque. Starting in the 19th century, there were several conflicts and even court disputes between Hindus and Muslims over the mosque.

On December 6, 1992, a large organized crowd of fanatic Hindu criminals called Kar Sevaks, who, backed by Indian regime and Intelligence-media lords, were committed to destroy the Historic Babri mosque demolished the 16th-century Babri Mosque in the city of Ayodhya, in Uttar Pradesh. These Hindu criminal elements and the backing of Indian government then run by the Congress party. The demolition occurred after a political rally at the site turned violent as their plan.

According to a section of extremely fanatic Hindus who sought to disrupt national unity, the Mughal rulers destroyed a Hindu structure marking the Ram Janmabhoomi, birthplace of Rama, hero of epic novel Ramayana to build the mosque, a claim denied by the Muslims. The political, historical and socio-religious debate over the destruction of Babri Mosque and history of the site and whether a previous temple was demolished or modified to create it, is known as the Ayodhya dispute.

Some people treat the dreams as real happening while others consider stories as real happening. For political poll purposes, Hindutva leaders claim Ram, the protagonist of Ramayana to be their god. Dreams are In Hindu mythological epic novel Ramayana, written by Valmiki, the town of Ayodhya was the birthplace of the Godly-king Rama. In the 16th century a Mughal general had built a mosque, known as the Babri Masjid, but the fanatic anti-Islam Hindus say the site was Ram Janmabhoomi, the birthplace of Rama.

Specialty of Babri Mosque

Mosques, no matter where they are constructed and by whom they are built and carved, are dedicated to God the Almighty. Once built, Mosques belong to Muslims who worship the God-Allah and people belonging to other religions or atheists who are officially Muslims cannot share that privilege.

Mosques of olden days are very beautiful and architecturally high qualitative, splendidly charming as those still exist reveal. Mosques all over India were built in different styles; the most elegant styles developed in areas where indigenous art traditions were strong and local artisans were highly skilled. The engineers who built mosque in early times sued Hindu temple motives that mislead the fanatic Hindus to view Mosques as being old temples. Fools, they claim mosques that were contracted by Hindu or Muslim engineers basing on Hindu motives now. Thus regional or provincial styles of mosques grew out of local temple or domestic styles, which were conditioned in their turn by climate, terrain, materials, hence the enormous difference between the mosques of Bengal, Kashmir and Gujarat.

The rulers of the Delhi Sultanate and their successors, the Mughal, were great patrons of art and architecture and constructed many fine tombs, mosques and madrasas. These have a distinctive style which bears influences of "later Tughlaq" architecture. The Babri Mosque followed the architectural school of Jaunpur Sultanate. When viewed from the west side, it resembled the Atala Masjid in Jaunpur. The architecture of the Babri Mosque is therefore completely a replica of the mosques in the Delhi Sultanate.

Babri Mosque was an important mosque of a distinct style, preserved mainly in architecture, developed after the Delhi Sultanate was established Babri Mosque in the Southern suburb of the walled city of Gaur, and the Jamali Kamili Mosque built by Sher Shah Suri. This was the forerunner of the Indo Islamic style adopted by Emperor Akbar who loved both Islam and Hinduism and sought their unity.

Modern architects have attributed this intriguing acoustic feature to a large recess in the wall of the Mihrab and several recesses in the surrounding walls which functioned as resonators; this design helped everyone to hear the speaker at the Mihrab. The sandstone used in building the Babri Mosque also had resonant qualities which contributed to the unique acoustics.

The Babri mosque's Tughluquid style integrated other design components and techniques, such as air cooling systems disguised as Islamic architectural elements like arches, vaults and domes. In the Babri Masjid a passive environmental control system comprised the high ceiling, domes, and six large grille windows. The system helped keep the interior cool by allowing natural ventilation as well as daylight.

The criminal Hindus destroyed along with Babri Mosque the unique architecture of India as well in the name of Hindu vote bank.

State project executed by RSS criminals

My previous articles on the subject have dealt with the question of regime-RSS conspiracy behind the destruction of historic Babri Mosque as the secret operation to erase the historic Babri Mosque, eventually culminating in the very act of arson and criminal operation at Ayodhya at Babri Mosque on 06 Dec, 1992.

A 2005 book by the former Intelligence Bureau (IB) Joint Director Maloy Krishna Dhar claimed the senior leaders of RSS, BJP, VHP and Bajrang Dal had planned the demolition 10 months in advance. He also suggested that the Indian National Congress leaders, including prime minister P V Narasimha Rao and home minister S B Chavan, had played with warnings about the demolition for deriving political benefits.

The leaders of Congress government wanted exactly the destruction of the Mosque and the Babri Mosque fell to Hindu militants. .
On 6 December 1992, the RSS and its affiliates organised a rally of over 150,000 VHP and BJP Hindutva militant criminals called the kar sevaks at the site of the mosque. The ceremonies included speeches by BJP leaders such as Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and Uma Bharti. During the first few hours of the rally, the crowd grew gradually more restless, and began raising militant slogans. As a mere formality a police cordon had been placed around the mosque in preparation for the Hindutva attack. However, around noon, some young men was allowed to slip past the cordon and climb the mosque itself, brandishing a saffron flag as per the plan by Advani gang. This was seen as a signal by the mob, who then stormed the historic Mosque. The mob set upon the building with axes, hammers, and grappling hooks, and within a few hours, the entire mosque was leveled. Hindus also destroyed numerous other mosques within the town. The police cordon, vastly outnumbered and unprepared for the size of the attack, fled, leaving the site exclusively to Hindutva criminal elements.

Muslims were banned entry only Hindus were allowed to enter the Mosque. That is the new free India.
Congress government and BJP were linked with each other directly and through the RSS and apparently they planned the destruction of the mosque and rehearsed the parts each would play. Congress party kept the Muslims members in dark about the conspiracy.

A 2009 report, authored by Justice Manmohan Singh Liberhan, found 68 people, among thousands, to be responsible for the demolition of the Masjid, mostly leaders from the BJP. Among those named were Vajpayee, Advani, Joshi and Vijay Raje Scindia. Kalyan Singh, who was then the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, also faced severe criticism in the report. Liberhan wrote that he posted bureaucrats and police officers to Ayodhya, whose record indicated that they would stay silent during the mosque’s demolition. Anju Gupta, a police officer who had been in charge of Advani's security on that day, stated that Advani and Murli Joshi made speeches that contributed, rather encouraged to provoking the misbehavior of the mob. The report notes that at this time no appeal was made to the Kar Sevaks not to enter the sanctum sanctorum or not to demolish the structure. BJP wanted to remove the Mosque. The report notes: "This selected act of the leaders itself speaks of the hidden intentions of one and all being to accomplish demolition of the disputed structure." The report holds that the "icons of the movement present that day could just as easily have prevented the demolition but they did not

The demolition of the Babri Masjid on 6 December 1992 by militant triggered riots all over India, leading to around 2,000 deaths of Muslims- one of the goals of Hindu rulers of post-Independent India in reducing Muslim population by all means.

Babri Mosque was demolished by Hindu criminals because that was the pet project of Indian government which dutifully promotes and helped Hindu organizations like RSS and its political outfits like Jana Sangh-BJP to target Muslims of India. With state backing in the 1980s, the Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) and BJP began a campaign for the construction of a Rama temple by demolishing hysteric Babri mosque in order to save image of Hinduism. , the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) became the political voice of demolition of the Mosque. RSS in coordination with the Indian s government officals, and politicians planned well in advice for the destruction of Babri mosque. Several rallies and marches were held as a part of this movement, including the Ram Rath Yatra led by L. K. Advani.

Following the success of epic stories “Ramayana” and “Mahabharata”, telecast through central government TV channel sponsored by Indian government agencies to mobilize Hindus to the cause of destruction of Babri Mosque, an important milestone in Islam in India. BJP leader L. K. Advani who became Indian Deputy PM by using his experience in pulling down Babri Mosque surrounded by RSS criminal elements, began a Rath Yatra to Ayodhya In September 1990, L. K. Advani began a Rath Yatra to Ayodhya in support of the Hindu nationalist movement. Advani was arrested by the government of Bihar before he could reach Ayodhya. Despite this, a large body of kar sevaks or Sangh Parivar activists reached Ayodhya and attempted to attack the mosque. This resulted in a pitched battle with the paramilitary forces that ended with the death of several kar sevaks.

PM V. P. Singh took serious view of the BJP plan to destroy Babri mosque and arrested LK Advani, leading to arsons by the BJP across India. Congress party did not support VP Singh in dealing with BJP’s vulture culture. The BJP withdrew its support to the V. P. Singh ministry at the centre, necessitating fresh elections. The BJP misused Hindu identity and used the false criminalized Hindutva plank to substantially increase its tally in the union parliament, as well as winning a majority in the Uttar Pradesh assembly.

On 6 December 1992 the VHP and the BJP organized a rally at the site involving 150,000 criminal volunteers, known as kar sevaks. The media said the Hindutva rally turned violent, and the crowd “overwhelmed” security forces and tore down the mosque. A subsequent inquiry into the incident found 68 people responsible for the demolition, including several leaders of the BJP and the VHP. None was punished, however, maybe because of state interference.

In fact, the Kar Sevaks destroyed the Mosque and left the site but Indian army and police began readying a make shift temple at the site. So the original idea of demotion of Babri mosque in fact beings to Indian regime/state but they found RSS/BJP’VHP to execute the anti-Islamic project.

Having successfully demolished the Hindu crooks now wants a Hindu structure on the site possibly to replace Islam with Hindutvaism.

On 16 December 1992, the Union home ministry set up the Liberhan Commission to investigate the destruction of the Mosque, headed by retired High Court Judge M. S. Liberhan. Totaling 399 sittings over the span of sixteen years, the Commission finally submitted its 1,029-page report to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on June 30, 2009.

According to the report, the events of December 6, 1992, in Ayodhya were "neither spontaneous nor unplanned". In March 2015, the Supreme Court of India admitted a petition alleging that, with a BJP government in power, the CBI would not pursue conspiracy charges against senior BJP leaders like L. K. Advani and Rajnath Singh. The Court asked the CBI to explain its delay in filing an appeal.

The governments of several neighbouring countries criticised the Government of India for failing to stop the demolition and the subsequent communal violence.

On February 7, 2013, the VHP’s steering committee meeting at the Kumbh Mela in Allahabad passed a resolution on the construction of a Ram temple on the ruins of the Babri Masjid which the parivar demolished 20 years ago on December 6, 1992. VHP sources admitted that the agenda was political and was drawn up with the 2014 elections in mind and the possibility that the recycled Ayodhya card might help the BJP in the Hindu belt and the west. They also said the blueprint was firmed up in conjunction with the RSS.” One of the reasons for the meeting on January 31 was to “prop up a ‘Hindutva’ context for Narendra Modi’s prospective projection nationally”.

After the demolition

The demolition, as expected, resulted in several months of intercommunal rioting between India's Hindu and Muslim communities, causing the death of at least 2,000 people-mostly Muslims, major minority in India.

The country was rocked by communal riots immediately following demolition of the mosque, between Hindus and Muslims in which more than 2,000 people died. In Bombay Riots, around 900 people died. The riots extended to Bangladesh, where hundreds of shops, homes and temples of Hindus were destroyed. Many terror attacks by banned jihadi outfits like Indian Mujahideen cited demolition of Babri Mosque as an excuse for terrorist attacks.

The Liberhan Commission set up as a mere formality to fool Indian Muslims and world at large by the Government of India to investigate the demolition blamed 68 people including senior BJP, RSS and VHP leaders for the demolition. Among those criticized in the report were AB Vajpayee, the BJP party's chief LK Advani, and chief minister Kalyan Singh.

In 2003, by the order of an Indian Court, the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) was asked to conduct a more in-depth study and an excavation to ascertain the type of structure that was beneath the rubble. The excavation was conducted from 12 March 2003 to 7 August 2003, resulting in 1360 discoveries. The ASI operated in close contact with the government agencies that promoted Hindutva as well as RSS/BJP leaders finally submitted its report to the Allahabad high court in support of Hindutva and opposing Muslim claims so that militant Hindus who planned the destruction and pulled down the historic Babri mosque as Indian duty, are safe and to punished. All were released and LK Advani became deputy PM of India. All criminal Hindus have one criminal code. Judiciary apparently has no power to punish them.

The summary of the ASI report, apparently prepared according to the wishes of RSS “specialists”, indicated the presence of a 10th-century temple structure under the mosque. This make believe story is the proof for a pro-Hindutva verdict. According to the ASI team, the human activity at the site dates back to the 13th century BCE. The report concluded that it was over the top of this construction that the disputed Mosque “structure” was constructed during the early 16th century.

These RSS specialists argue that the historic world monument Taj Mahal in Agra was also a temple built by a Hindu king and not by Muslim emperor Shah Jehan. That is scientific madness of fanatic Hindutva.
But the Allahabad judges seem to worship it.

Weak Muslim groups immediately disputed the ASI findings. The Safdar Hashmi Memorial Trust (Sahmat) criticised the report saying that it said that "presence of animal bones throughout as well as of the use of 'surkhi' and lime mortar" that was found by ASI are all characteristic of Muslim presence "that rule out the possibility of a Hindu temple having been there beneath the mosque." The report claimed otherwise on the basis of 'pillar bases' was contested since no pillars were found, and the alleged existence of 'pillar bases' has been debated by archaeologists.

Syed Rabe Hasan Nadvi, chairman of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) alleged that ASI failed to mention any evidence of a temple in its interim reports and only revealed it in the final report which was submitted during a time of national tension, making the report highly suspect.

How can Hindutva falsehood be the court judgment?

The destruction of the Babri Mosque (as well as the destruction of numerous others that day), as part of India’s greatest Black Day marking end of secular democracy in the country, sparked Muslim outrage around the country, leading to several months of inter-communal rioting in which Hindus and Muslims attacked one another, burning and looting homes, shops and places of worship. Several of the BJP leaders were taken into custody, and the VHP was briefly banned by the government. Despite this, the ensuing riots spread to cities like Mumbai, Surat, Ahmedabad, Kanpur, Delhi, Bhopal and several others, eventually resulting in over 2000 deaths, mainly Muslim. The Mumbai Riotsalone, which occurred in December 1992 and January 1993 and which the Shiv Sena played a big part in organizing, caused the death of around 900 people, and estimated property damage of around ?9,000 crore ($3.6 billion). The demolition and the ensuing riots were among the major factors behind the 1993 Mumbai bombings and many successive riots in the coming decade.[20] Jihadi outfits like the Indian Mujahideen cited the demolition of the Babri Mosque as a reason for their terrorist attacks.

The Allahabad High Court, however, upheld the ASI's findings as the base for the false 2010 court verdict.

A land title case on the site was lodged in the Allahabad High Court, the verdict of which was pronounced on 30 September 2010. In their verdict, the three judges of The Allahabad High Court ruled that the 2.77 acres (1.12 ha) of Ayodhya land be divided into 3 parts, with 1/3 going to the Ram Lalla or Infant Lord Rama represented by the Hindu Maha Sabha for the construction of the Ram temple, 1/3 going to the Islamic Sunni Waqf Board and the remaining 1/3 going to a Hindu religious denomination Nirmohi Akhara. While the three-judge bench was not unanimous that the disputed structure was constructed after demolition of a temple, it did agree that a temple or a temple structure predated the mosque at the same site.[39] The excavations by the Archaeological Survey of India were heavily used as evidence by the court that the predating structure was a massive Hindu religious building Communal Clashes


The inscriptions in the Babri Masjid premises state that the mosque was built in 935 AH (1528–29 CE) by Mir Baqi in accordance with the wishes of Babur. However, some historians have argued that it was built during the Delhi Sultanate period (13th-15th century), and may have been renovated during Babur's period. R. Nath has stated that, judging from the architecture of the mosque, it should be taken to have been built in the pre-Mughal period.

According to an early 20th-century text by Maulvi Abdul Ghaffar and the surrounding historial sources examined by historian Harsh Narain, the young Babur came from Kabul to Awadh (Ayodhya) in disguise, dressed as a Qalandar (Sufi ascetic), probably as part of a fact-finding mission. Here he met the Sufi saints Shah Jalal and Sayyid Musa Ashiqan and took a pledge in return for their blessings for conquering Hindustan. The pledge is not spelled out in the 1981 edition of Ghaffar's book. Lala Sita Ram, who had access to the older edition in 1932 wrote, "The faqirs answered that they would bless him if he promised to build a mosque after demolishing the Janmasthan temple.

Babur accepted the faqirs' offer and returned to his homeland."

While the inscription states that it was built on orders of Babur in 1528, there are no other records of the mosque from this period.

The first known report of a mosque appears in a book Sahifa-I-Chihil Nasaih Bahadur Shahi, said to have been written by a daughter of the emperor Bahadur Shah I (and granddaughter of Aurangzeb) in the early 18th century.

The Hindu fanatics have conveniently confused the hero of ancient epic Ramayana Rama with real life. The earliest extant account of the mosque's connection to birthplace of Rama comes from the European Jesuit missionary Joseph Tiefenthaler, who visited the site during 1766–71. Johann Bernoullitranslated his account from French, and included it in his 1788 work.

Hindu fanatics in tourist spots and historic sites pretending to be the tourist guides all over India tell the visitors false stories to present Muslims and Muslim rulers as bad fellow and Hindus and Hindu rulers being the greatest ones. According to this account, Aurangazeb or Babur had demolished the Ramkot fortress, including the house that was considered as the birthplace of god Rama by Hindus. Can gods be born as well? In 1838, British surveyor Montgomery Martin wrote that the pillars in the mosque were taken from a Hindu temple. A section of historians, such as R. S. Sharma, deny this, and state that such claims of temple demolition sprang up only after the 18th century.

Apart from Hindus, Jains and Buddhists have also claimed the Babri Mosque site. According to Jain Samata Vahini, the mosque was built over a 6th-century Jain temple. Similarly, Udit Raj's Buddha Education Foundation has claimed the mosque was built over a Buddhist shrine. Hindus say Babri Mosque was built over a temple of hero Rama. In India many temples have come up to worship film stars.

Conspiracy: Demotion of Indian secularism, attack on India Constitution

Since Indian state panned for the demolition of Babri Mosque, there is nothing Indian Muslims who struggle for a livelihood could have done to save the Mosque. Hindutva elements seeking power in central and state governments but could not get it began spreading Hindu venom among people and pestering the Nehru government to destroy the Babri Mosque. In December 1949, the Hindu organization Akhil Bharatiya Ramayana Mahasabha organized a non-stop 9-day recitation of the Ramacharitamanas just outside the mosque. At the end of this event, on the night of 22–23 December 1949, a group of 50–60 people entered the mosque and placed idols of Rama and Sita there. On the morning of 23 December, the event organizers announced over loudspeakers that the idols had appeared “miraculously”, and exhorted Hindu devotees to come to the mosque for a ‘darshan’. As thousands of Hindus started visiting the place, the Government quickly declared the mosque a disputed area as a prelude to a legal dispute and locked the gates of Babri Mosque

Indian regime began acting very shrewdly towards destroying Babri mosque in a concealed manner by employing fanatic Hindu elements. Home Minister Vallabhbhai Patel, a proponent of Hindutva in Congress party and PM Jawaharlal Nehru directed the UP Chief Minister Govind Ballabh Pant and Uttar Pradesh Home Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri to get the idols removed from the mosque premises. Pant issued orders to remove the idols, but under tremendous pressure tactics of RSS elements very close to the Nehru government, Faizabad's deputy commissioner K. K. Nayar refused to obey the order just by saying that he would not hurt Hindu sentiments as the Hindus would also retaliate.

On 16 January 1950, Gopal Singh Visharad filed a civil suit in the Faizabad Court, asking that Hindus be allowed to worship in the mosque Rama and his wife Sita whom he deserted in the forest. Idols were illegally placed inside the Mosque. In 1959, the Nirmohi Akhara filed another lawsuit demanding possession of the mosque. On 18 December 1961, the Sunni Central Wqaf Board also filed a lawsuit, demanding legal possession of the site and removal of idols from the mosque premises.

These fanatics Hindus wanted the Mosque removed from Ayodhya and Indian government backed that.
Gradually, under protection and promotion by the governments and state Hindutva parties wanted to spoil Indian polity, poison Indian minds with divisive thoughts and fanatic ideas.

The takeover of the Babri Masjid on the night of December 22-23, 1949, was but a subplot for both RSS and Indian state. The idol of hero Ram “magically appeared” inside Babri Mosque as Indian and UP governments helped the fanatic criminal elements to commit crimes inside the Mosque, while Muslims were denied permission enters their mosque. “Lord” LK Advani has systematically spread the tale that no prayers were said at the mosque for years.

The testimony of the Babri Masjid’s last Assistant Imam (Muezzin), Muhammad Ismail, was recorded who put up a fierce resistance to the midnight Hindu intruders who had scaled the walls and were to plant the idol. Muhammad Ismail was beaten up and forced to flee and he spent the remaining years of his life as a muezzin in a mosque in Paharganj Ghosania on the outskirts of Faizabad.

Governments continued to support the midnight criminals.

Later, in a 2005 March book, former Intelligence Bureau (IB) Joint Director, Maloy Krishna Dhar claimed that Babri mosque demolition was planned 10 months in advance by top leaders of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, BJP and VHP and raised questions over the way the then Prime Minister P. V. Narasimha Rao, had handled the issue. Dhar claimed that he was directed to arrange the coverage of a key meeting of the BJP/Sangh Parivar and that the meeting "proved beyond doubt that they (RSS, BJP, VHP) had drawn up the blueprint of the Hindutva assault in the coming months and choreographed the ‘pralaya nritya’ (dance of destruction) at Ayodhya in December 1992. The RSS, BJP, VHP and the Bajrang Dal leaders present in the meeting amply agreed to work in a well-orchestrated manner." Claiming that the tapes of the meeting were personally handed over by him to his boss, he asserts that he has no doubts that his boss had shared the contents with the then PM Narasimha Rao who had been made the PM on some mysterious agreement including removal of Babri Mosque, and the Home Minister (S B Chavan) who was among the first to worship the idols pushed into the Babri Mosque. The author claimed that there was silent agreement that Ayodhya offered "a unique opportunity to take the Hindutva wave to the peak for deriving political benefit."

In April 2014, a sting operation by Cobrapost claimed that the demolition was not an act of frenzied mobs but an act of state sabotage planned with so much secrecy that no government agency got wind of it. It further said that the sabotage was planned several months in advance by Vishva Hindu Parishad and Shiv Sena, but not jointly. The documentary Ram ke Naam by Anand Patwardhan, also examines the events preceding the demolition.

Destruction of Islamic Babri mosque is considered by both Congress party and BJP as India’s major achievement after freedom from Great Britain.


Interestingly, Congress-BJP duo and their media lords projected the ghastly destruction of Babri Mosque by militant and criminal elements of Hindus as a collective act of all Hindus in India and abroad so that Hindus do not oppose the demolition of the Mosque or punishment of Hindu criminals. Cunning ruling fellows.

When an individual feels inferiority complex before someone else for their qualities or achievements, one can understand that hollowness but when a nation or government itself feels inferior to minorities- that is puzzlingly madness. India suffers from inferiority problem before the Muslims.

India pulled down the Babri Mosque as a way of insulting its neighbor and nuclear foe Pakistan as it wants to show to Islamabad that it can deal with Muslims and their Mosques the way RSS wants. Indian media spread rumors as per Indian government instructions and negative reporting about Pakistan and this helps the government to reduce the importance of investigations about Babri Mosque destruction, the necessity of punishing the Hindu criminals.

Unfortunately, Indian judges and judiciary are vulnerable to media mischief and state interference in delaying the judgment and punishing the guilty Hindus and politicians involved in the ghastly destruction and murder of Muslims.

Hindus ruler san leaders suffer from inferiority complex before Islami couture and their religion and faith. Upon independence, Indian Hindu rulers and leaders want to settle all issues one by one. Muslim mosques and Islamic architecture, especially the charm of Taj Mahal have cause sleepless nights and the nightmare has been too tough for them to overcome, and hence destruction of Babri Mosque Hindus occupy several mosque across the nation, importantly in Karnataka.

The Congress party under whose government the Babri Mosque was pulled down in 1992 shamelessly by Hindu militants, is now in the opposition while, interestingly, the BJP and Hindutva outfits, used by the Congress government as the useful tool to dismantle the Babri Mosque is the ruling party of India. BJP regime can control and force the judiciary to deliver the judgment as written by the RSS.

IHR, a central government a organization obviously helps the government and Hindus in somehow proving that there was a structure under the historic Babri Mosque. When the judges cooperate with Hindutva forces and state organs, Survey cannot be expected to behave differently.

Unfortunately for Islam, most of Indian Muslims work for their Hindu masters as a party member and vote bank provider on b payment basis. For these Muslims, their Hindu political master and their parties are more sacred than Islam and mosque. They are made to behave secularists by Hindu leaders who refuse to be secular themselves. Hindu leaders and even parties pay money to mosques to work for their parties.

Hindu judges who want to insult Islam have used the anti-Islamic “researches” as evidence to prove their point against Babur and Indian Muslims. Indian government wants to showcase eit prowess to minority Muslims and neighboring Pakistan that it is powerful enough to deal with Muslims.

Time is overdue for Indian government and the opposition to decide to fulfill the pledge given to the world to rebuild and hand over to Muslims the Historic Babri Mosque at the site where it stood for centuries as a witness to changing political colors of India and society.

Muslims are indeed powerless to oppose the joint conspiracy against them jointly by Indian rulers and their allies in media, intelligence, police and military and they only expect the judiciary to deliver justice to them by asking the government to hand over a newly built Babri mosque in the same shape at Ayodhya where it originally stood before it was removed by Indian fanatic Hindu militants.

Indian media lords working very closely with the government agencies and intelligence, have very tactfully converted most Muslims, who are now heavily politicized to consider the political parties more important than Islam or Mosques and thus support the Hindu parties, into thinking for their Hindu bosses and their anti-Islamic interests.

Unlike Hindu or other religions, Muslims do not have a truly national or international leader to take up their causes sincerely keeping in view the demands of Islamic faith mainly because Indian regime does not want a truly national Muslim leader and cripples all moves by educate Muslims to have their own leaders to protect their genuine interests.

Now Hindutva leaders have the reign in New Delhi can do Antung they like in the absence any support from intentional organizations or leaders.

One fondly hopes, the historic Babri Mosque will be back in Ayodhya by next year this time around and a new epic novel Post-Ramayana would be written later on the unity of Hindus and Muslims and a new Indian nationhood without fanaticism and communal hatred. There world would see a blossoming secular India where each religion would be free to follow their own religious customs and codes.

Rebuilding Babri Mosque means rebuilding faith in the Indian system and judiciary and government. That would also end Hindutva fanaticism once for all.

Muslims and democratic-secular nations expect the Indian Apex Court where the case is pending for too long to help the government in rebuilding the Babri Mosque at the site even in another name if Hindutva forces so desire, so that Muslims get proper justice and Indians, both Hindus and Muslims, among others, live together for establishing a truly democratic and truly secular India.
