"For the sake of Islam I became a wanderer, I battled infidels and Hindus,
I determined to become a martyr
Thank God I became a Killer of Non-Muslims!"
Babur established his authority over the whole of northern India when he conquered the Rajputana kingdom of Mewar and the Hindu King of Chittodgad, Rana Sangrama Singh, at the Battle of Khanwa. After this victory, his general, Mir Baqshi became governor of the region around Awadh.
Mir Baqshi built the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya naming it after Emperor Babur, after destroying a pre-existing temple of Rama at the site . Although there is no reference to the new mosque in Babur's diary, the Baburnama, the pages of the relevant period are missing in the diary. The contemporary Tarikh-i-Babari records that Babur's troops "demolished many Hindu temples at Chanderi.
As it was clear that Babur was intolerant towards Hindus and Hindu temples, one shouldn’t have to doubt and ask for evidence that he actually demolished it or not. We can see a hundreds of examples in India which clearly shows how Muslim rulers treated Hindu temples and converted it to mosques. Now the debates are going on as weather there was a Temple before. Even though the Archaeological society of India stated that there was a Hindu Temple before the Masjid; after their latest excavations , some are still not ready to accept.. But for me , there is no need to rely on ASI. If the place is Ayodhya, its Bhagvan Rams Birth place and there should not be any thing other than his Temple
DEMOLITION OF BABRI:
On December 6th 1992, about 1, 50000 karsewaks gathered around the disputed building and Demolished it with the blessings of BJP and VHP leaders.
SIGNIFICANCE OF AYODHYA.
Ayodhya is located on the right bank of the river Sarayu, 6 km from Faizabad,Uttar pradesh. This town is closely associated with Rama, Seventh incarnation of GOD Vishnu. According to the Ramayana, the city is 9,000 years old, and was founded by Manu, the first man in the Vedas, and law-giver of the Hindus. Other sources hold that it was founded by its namesake, King Ayudh. For centuries, it was the capital for the Surya dynasty, of which Lord Rama was the most celebrated king
Skanda and other puranas list Ayodhya as one of the seven most sacred cities of India, as it has been the backdrop for much of Hindu scripture.
In the Atharvaveda, Ayodhya was described as 'made by Gods and prosperous as Heaven itself'.
Valmiki began writing the Ramayana in Ayodhya. Its opening chapters recount the magnificence of the city, the glories of its monarch and the virtues, wealth and loyalty of its people. Kamban or Tulsidas retold a common version of the Ramayana called the Ramacharitamanasa in which he also praised the city.
WHY HINDUS DEMOLISHED BABRI MASJID
So in short Ayodhya is a Sacred place for Hindus.. They respect it, its holiness. Ayodhya is as much as important for Hindus like Bethlehem for Christians, Mecca for Muslims.
What Muslims would have done, if they found a Hindu Temple in Mecca? What they will do, if some powerful Western country attack and build a church by demolishing the present mosque in Mecca… Definitely, the whole Muslim community will wait for an appropriate time after gaining strength to wipe away the church/Temple and bring back their mosque. Because their faith teaches them that this place is holy.
I just take the example of Mecca because it is the holiest place for Muslims all over world… We all know that Muslims never allow such a monument of others religions in their territory. Hundreds of Hindu temples have been demolished in Pakistan and Afghanistan( due to hatred and in name of construction of shopping buildings); both were the part of Indian Territory once. When the Babri masjid demolished in India, Hundreds of temples in both these countries where destroyed. Why everybody cares only about Babri, what about those Temples destroyed
The Muslims should have think about this.. There are hundreds of temples demolished and mosques erected on their ruins early from 8th century in Indian soil by the foreign Muslim invaders. But Hindus didn’t demand the destruction of those structures. They didn’t act like the same manner what happening in neighbouring countries. Hindus just asked to allow the construction of temple in the birthplace of God SriRam.. The interesting fact is that the Babari Masjid was not a Masjid with daily worshipping or prayers. It was just a structure build to show the might of Islam over Hinduism after defeating the Hindu kingdom.
This structure did not have any minarets (essential for Azan – call for prayer) nor a water-pool for Wazu (ablution) which are mandatory requirements for a mosque. This shows that this building was not a holy mosque, but a monument to celebrate ‘the enslavement of Hindusthan by Islam.
The demolition of Babri masjid was a necessary work to bring back the might of Hindus, moreover it was their affection, love, pious towards God Sri Ram. Thousands of people gave their life while stopping Baburs force from destructing the Ram Temple and erecting Babri. The Muslims now crying for Babri masjid are forgetting some important Things. They have to remember that their forefathers were Hindus and these Muslim rulers who invaded India forcibly converted them. They have to remember how much pain they have took from the hands of these cruel kings. Now the Muslims wanted to protect the Babri but their forefathers who were Hindus wanted to protect Ram Temple.
Finally every Hindu/Indian can smile , because they succeeded in demolishing a structure built by a foreign invader after killing thousands of Indians. I congratulate all behind this movement . Now the immediate step is to build a Ram Temple in Ayodhya and a Masjid in a nearby place for Muslims if they wish, but outside of Ayodhya.
