I have been analysing TV news coverage on #Ayodhya for a while now.

Here I detail how some TV news anchors abjured all journalistic values to build a majoritarian consensus on the Ayodhya dispute. #AYODHYAVERDICT

newslaundry.com/2019/11/09/bra…
All debates had studio sets replete with Hindu imagery – the proposed temple, sounding of the conch shell by men dressed in saffron, Lord Ram in various poses.
Swamis or so-called Hindu spiritual leaders were brought on and allowed to go on unhinged rants against Babur and his supporters (read Muslims) that were treated as spiritual pravachan — and you could only stop it at the risk of hurting the sentiments of a man of god.

At last, the #IndianSupremeCourt pronounces historic decision to settle #Ayodhya land dispute. The #RamMandir will be constructed on the same place and #Muslims will get 5 acres of alternate land for mosque.
Ideally, any alternate land for mosque should not have been allotted. However, it is justified if it reduces the communal tension. As this mosque was a symbol of oppression and illegal construction, the Indian government should ensure it is not named after #Babar again.
For this purpose, the government can also make good use of #Sunni_Shia dispute over this land.

The dispute was of local nature during the #British rule and the first reported clash happened in 1853.

Shall post a thread of some of my all time favourite icons, sculptures, images of Lord Rama to celebrate the #AYODHYAVERDICT! ☺🙏

#JaiShriRam

This is my all time favourite Lord Rama of Vaduvoor. 😍😍😍
The lord of Bhadrachalam to whom Bhaktha Ramadasu composed all his songs!

Lord Rama with Sita Devi on his lap, his brother Lakshmana standing by them.

😍😍😍

#JaiShriRam
The beautiful original silver idol of Rama and Sita that Tyagaraja worshiped.Notice little Hanuman on the side, near Rama's feet. All Tyagaraja's compositions were dedicated to THIS Rama. If you are in Thanjavur, you can have darshan in his descendant's home.
#JaiShriRam 🙏

The #AYODHYAVERDICT is an institutional judicial stamp on a decades long sanghi campaign to relegate Muslims to inferior status in India. It condones and thus legitimizes majoritarian mob violence as a way to do achieve goals. Worse horrors coming next.
If ghosts exist, the ghost of Jinnah is saying today, see, I told you so! #AYODHYAVERDICT
The most ironic hypocrisy here is that those hindutva supporters who claim to hang their hats on the sanctity of property rights and rule of law, are now celebrating state-sanctioned mob-violence-enabled annexation of private property.

•In 1528AD around 491 years from today,
On the orders of Babur his Commander Mir Baqi demolished the Pious Lord Shri Ram temple & built the Babri structure on it.
#HistoryOfRamMandir
#राममंदिर_का_इतिहास
•After being defeated by Rana Sanga, Twice Babur attacked the birthplace of Sri Ram, the prominent of Hindu culture, and emerged victorious.
On the advise of Muslim fakir disciples Khwaja Abbas Musa and Jalalshah, Babur destroyed Temple of Shri Ram in Ayodhya.
#HistoryOfAyodhya
•Babur ruled India from 1526 to 1530, but he continued to target the shrine of Indian faith and this jihadi terrorist continuously betrayed Hindu’s.
Hindu’s back then tried resisting and protect all their heritage sites!

As the tense wait for the #AYODHYAVERDICT spreads across the country, one wonders how many people of my generation and younger have ever read the #Ramayana with any care. Tempted to start a thread of the Ramayana.
Ram (sometimes written as Rama) is an insignia of how the traditional Indian mind considered righteousness. The Ramayana (and the Mahabharata) is/are not ethnically confined. I would argue it (they) belong to, and live in, every Indian. And anyone, any land ever touched by India.
The Ramayana is - as many have noticed - less 'complex' than the Mahabharata. It has fewer characters and sub-plots. To journey from the Ramayana to the Mahabharata is to see a society evolve.

The Ayodhya case has 50 parties⁠— but here's what you might want to understand.
More than a century-old religious dispute⁠— the first case was filed in 1885⁠— became a land title suit is awaiting the final word from India’s Supreme Court, which is expected to give its verdict in the Ram Temple-Babri Masjid dispute in Ayodhya very soon.

#AyodhyaVerdict
The Hindu sides contend there should be a temple for Lord Rama in a 2.7 acre land in Ayodhya, where the Babri Masjid has stood since the 16th century.

THREAD on #Ramjanmbhoomi #AyodhyaVerdict
1n Make no mistake this “mediation panel” are a bunch of duffers. They’re falling in the trap of of circumventing the legal process, to later twist a narrative that any temple will be illegitimate & offering compensation for a title
2n claim that doesn’t exist. Why? For starters if they agree to “give up” what they never had in the first place, they create a whole body of speculative literature that will claim that waqf did in fact have a claim. This leads to two sets of narratives a) a Hindu land grab and
3n b) that the temple (if and when built) was legally untenable and based on extortion. Essentially it delegitimises the entire litigation process. What’s worse is they are now demanding public funds for mosque upkeep as part of this settlement. This has two further disastrous..

1/n On the onset of historical judgment by SC in regards to #AyodhyaVerdict . I take pleasure to bring forward few important facts. Acerbic may it be to taste but is like penicillin to fix the inevitable pain. Refer thread below:
2/n Ramayana states that the capital of Rama was Ayodhya.Its believed that the site of the now-demolished Disputed Structure is the exact birthplace of Rama.The 🕌 is believed to have been constructed during 1528-29 by a certain 'Mir Baqi',a commander of the Mughal emperor Babur.
3/n Interestingly there is scant evidence for above.Even Baburnama doesn’t finds a mention of same.Though Baburnama includes various instances of Babur destroying Hindu Temples & Building Mosque over it. In 1611, an English traveller William Finch visited Ayodhya.

Thread on 490 years of history of #RamMandir #Ayodhya
No abuse please - this is sacred for me.
Feel free to contribute.
In 1528, Mir Baqi, one of Mughal king Babur's generals, destroyed a pre-existing temple of Rama and built a mosque called Babri Masjid (Babur's mosque) at the 'Ram Janmabhoomi' site in #Ayodhya
1672: Lal Das's Awadh-Vilasa describes the location of Ram Janmabhoomi without mentioning a temple. All travelers prior to this document mention ruins of a castle. #Ayodhya
