It was the longest running commission in India’s history with several extensions granted by various governments.

Babri Masjid demolition

It has been 30 years of the demolition of the Babri Masjid in Uttar Pradesh’s Ayodhya took place on December 6. The destruction actually transpired on the same date in 1992, after which it is considered one of the darkest days in the history of India. The disputed structure, which now is called Ram Mandir has been at the epicenter of many political debates and even has helped political outfits garner votes over this agenda.

The Demolition came after the Hindu outfits and other community people staked claims of the land to be the birthplace of Lord Ram, and alleged that the Mughal emperor who built the mosque in 1528 actually built on Lord Ram’s birthplace.

The day for many Hindu outfits and their supporters is perceived as a glorious triumph over one particular religion. However, contrary to this, many others see it to be as the darkest day in the history of India as the movement for religion came at the cost of lives. The topic of Ram Mandir has always found its way as the crux of many political debates or even has become a buzzword for political leaders to garner votes by milking the name of Ram Mandir.

What led to Babri Masjid’s Demolition?

The Demolition of the Babri Masjid came after a chain of episodes that triggered the Hindu to take law into their own hands. In December 1949, Lord Rams idols were planted inside the Masjid that triggered protests by Hindu and Muslim communities across the county. In 1989, the then Prime Minister, Rajiv Gandhi, gave a nod to Hindu outfits to conduct a ceremony, Shilanyas inside the mosque premises.

LK Advani’s Rath Yatra in the 1990s added on to build a Ram temple on the land of Babri Masjid. Late UP CM, Mulayam Singh Yadav Government’s action also brought the movement to the limelight after they instructed the police to fire at the Hindutva mob who were marching towards Babri Masjid. The firing led to 16 deaths of the Kar Sevaks which included the famous Kothari brothers.

The land of Babri Masjid which is now turned into the land of Ram Mandir was also amongst the leading agenda topics for BJP at that time.

Later, in 1992, the demolition was carried out by the Kar Sevaks or mobilised Hindu outfits namely Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), RSS, Shiv Sena, and more. Many different organizations joined hands to pull down the 16-Century mosque in the city of Ayodhya on December 6. The demolition was also propelled by BJP’s LK Advani’s Rath Yatra which was carried out in the 1990s and as a ramification, LK Advani was arrested for it later on.

What all happened that day?

The Karsevaks or mobilization of the Hindu outfits aimed to put a conclusion to the Babri Masjid land dispute themselves, after they failed to win the battle on legal grounds. On December 6, 1992, the Kar Sevaks proceeded to carry out their mission and surrounded the Babri Masjid. According to reports, within hours, the Karsevaks successfully demolished the 16-century mosque.

The reason for the demolition was always to reclaim the land which is allegedly the birthplace of Lord Ram and the Hindu groups also claimed that it was also built by demolishing Ram Mandir. Reports also suggest that over 2,000 people were killed during the demolition of Babri Masjid.

Supreme Court’s judgement on the disputed land

The Supreme Court delivered its verdict on the disputed land and ruled in the favor of Ram Lalla who had sought staked claims of the land and had wished to build the temple of Lord Ram on it on November 9, 2019. The Supreme court also allotted five-acre land to the Sunni Waqf Board to build a mosque. It was the longest running commission in India’s history with several extensions granted by various governments.

The construction of the temple was given to Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust’s temple construction committee. The construction had commenced on 5 August 2020 and is expected to be completed by December 2023.

Dinesh Karthik breaks silence on Rohit Sharma’s poor captaincy stint, says Indian batters are failing the entire team

Dinesh Karthik breaks silence on Rohit Sharma's poor captaincy stint, says Indian batters are failing the entire team

Team India has not had a satisfactory start of Bangladesh tour. In the first ODI, India lost by a close margin of one wicket and gave a lead of 1-0 to the host. India had scored only 186 runs while batting first, but came close to winning this match.

In such a situation, India’s victory seemed certain, but Indian players lost the match by dropping catches on important occasions. And as they say, catches win you matches, and seems like Team India is still in the T20 zone and is finding it hard to bat and ball for 50-50 overs.

After the match, Dinesh Karthik talked about the shortcomings of Team India. During this, he also targeted skipper Rohit Sharma and raised questions on Rohit’s captaincy. He also discussed the bating of men in blue fiercely.

Karthik said that Rohit Sharma should know know that the team did not bowl well in those last 6 overs. DK added that Rohit Sharma made a mistake by not giving a single over to any spinner. Shabaz got five and Washington Sundar got five wickets and there were overs left to bowl. In such a situation, Bangladesh batsmen could have been forced to go for big shots by deploying fielders on the boundary line, but Team India did not do so. However, India did not lose the match because of bowling.

Karthik said that the fact that let them down to a great extent was Team India’s batting. The bowlers did a great job taking nine wickets and got India in a strong position at the end of 40 overs. Things got worse after that. But no partnership in those last eight overs, that was the main reason for the match losing out of Indian hands. Moreover after the match was over, Indian captain Rohit Sharma also admitted that his batsmen needed to perform better.

Maharashtra-Karnataka border dispute intensifies, ministers cancel trip, ask for Center's intervention

The border dispute between Karnataka and Maharashtra is taking a violent turn. Following a protest in Belagavi by an organization called Karnataka Rakshana Vedike, trucks with Maharashtra number plates were stopped, vandalised and black ink was applied on them. Several trucks were also pelted with stones.

Belgaum city is at the center of this dispute. Maharashtra has consistently claimed that this Marathi-majority region was wrongfully given to Kannada-majority Karnataka in the language-based reorganization of states in the 1960s. Karnataka has recently resumed its claim on some villages in Maharashtra, triggering a fresh round of acrimony, despite the fact that BJP is the only party in power in both these states.

Ruckus started after the windshield of a truck was damaged during protests today, after large number of protesters blocked traffic carrying the traditional Kannada/Karnataka flag. Large number of Policemen have also been deployed to calm the situation, but the protesters continued to jostle with the police and lay down on the road.

Due to this protest, two Maharashtra ministers, Chandrakant Patil and Shambhuraj Desai, postponed their scheduled visit to Belagavi. On Monday, Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai had said that the yatra could pose a law and order challenge. Maharashtra has appointed Patil and Desai as co-ordination ministers, as the dispute is yet again in the Supreme Court.

Another case of border-line violence was reported in Belagavi about a week ago, at a college festival, when a student waving a Kannada flag was attacked by some Marathi students. Teachers and other staff of the host college in Belagavi’s Tilakwadi intervened to stop the fight and later the police had to start an investigation.

Several political leaders of Maharashtra are asking for Centre’s intervention now. NCP chief Sharad Pawar even said that if Karnataka CM, Basavaraj Bommai is going to make provocative statements, then the Centre should intervene. He also requested Maharastra MPs to take a delegation to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah, since the winter session of the Parliament is beginning tomorrow.
