“Ayodhya Dispute: Journey from History to Resolution”

Establishment of Ram Mandir was  a battle finally ended after 500 years was its a justice? is demolition of Babri Masjid was a just decision? Lets understand this hot issue  of the country by discussing  the topic from conflict to resolution.  The Ayodhya dispute has been a long-standing issue in India, rooted in historical events and leading to significant tensions. This blog will take you through the timeline of events, from the construction of the Babri Mosque in 1528 to the recent Supreme Court ruling in 2019, shaping the narrative of this contentious issue.

Early Conflicts (1528-1853): The Babri Mosque was built in 1528 by Mughal commander Mir Baqi during Babur’s rule. The first recorded conflict emerged in 1853 when a Hindu sect claimed that a temple was demolished during Babur’s era to make way for the mosque.

British Partition (1859): Tensions heightened in 1859 when British colonial rulers divided the mosque, assigning the inside for Muslims and the outer court for Hindus. This partition set the stage for future disputes.

Post-Independence Turmoil (1949-1950): In 1949, just two years after India gained independence, the mosque turned into disputed property. Hindu idols were placed inside, and the gates were closed, preventing Muslim prayers. Civil suits were filed in 1950, marking the beginning of legal battles.

BJP’s Rise and Babri Masjid Demolition (1980s-1992): In the 1980s, the BJP, then a fringe party, gained momentum with a campaign to build a temple in place of the mosque. Led by Lal Krishna Advani, the agitation peaked in 1992 when Hindu mobs tore down the Babri Masjid. This event resulted in nationwide riots, causing about 2,000 casualties.

Legal Battles (1992-2019): Years of legal battles followed the mosque’s demolition. In 2019, the Supreme Court issued a landmark ruling, acknowledging crimes in the mosque’s surreptitious entry of idols in 1949 and the demolition in 1992. Despite recognizing these offenses, the court did not impose consequences.

Ram Temple Construction (Present): The land was awarded to a Hindu trust for building the Ram temple, symbolizing religious triumphalism. The inauguration of the temple is seen as a move towards a Hindu-first nation, impacting India’s secular identity.

The consecration of Ayodhya’s grand Ram Temple is scheduled for January 22, a momentous event for Hindus. However, some parts of the temple are still under construction, sparking objections from some Hindu leaders. Despite this, the government and the temple trust affirm that the consecration adheres to Hindu beliefs.

Event Details: The ceremony will commence just after 12 pm local time on January 22. Many parts of the temple are still being built, but the government insists that consecrating an incomplete temple aligns with Hindu principles. The event will feature a procession of idols, including a four-foot statue of a child Ram placed in the inner sanctum. The ceremony, expected to last 30 minutes, will be led by Prime Minister Modi and priests.

What about mosque in the heart of Ayodhya- it is still a blue print.

The 2019 Supreme Court verdict: paved the way for the construction of the temple on the site of the demolished Babri Masjid, but the court also directed that a “suitable” five acres in a “prominent place” be given to the Sunni Waqf Board of Uttar Pradesh for the construction of a mosque.

construction of the mosque: In the same order, the apex court had particularly asked the government, both at the Centre and the State, to facilitate the construction of the mosque simultaneously with the temple. Yet, while Ayodhya prepares for the grand consecration of the Hindu temple, the proposed Muhammed bin Abdullah Masjid (mosque) of Ayodhya exists only as a blueprint. Local Hindu and Muslims live in harmony with each other the problem comes with some troublesome of the  society those are “Kattar” (rigid)Hindu and Muslima who create animosity in society. Ther are two sides of we have seen today The Muslims who were inside the door waiting when Mosque will be built which is just a blue print on papers where as for Hindus its the day is not less then Diwali. we hope the construction will start soon for mosque and Muslims will also get a chance of celebration. as per information from sources the construction of mosque may start after Ramadan 2024.
