As the Supreme Court will give its verdict today in the Babri Masjid case, here's a detailed account on how the Masjid was demolished illegally, the violence that followed & how the cuplrits enjoyed wide acceptance from the Hindus. Thread:
The Babri Masjid at #Ayodhya had been a bone of contention between the Hindus and Muslims for decades. For Hindus, the Masjid was reputed to be built at the birthplace of Ram, and hence a sacred site.
The issue had been dormant until the 1980s when a series of events brought it back in prominence. As a result, Hindu Sangh Parivar, which comprises of the RSS, VHP & the BJP, among others, decreed that the Masjid should be razed and a Mandir built in its place.

A thread on the views of Justice Gautam Patel regarding Allahabad High Court's #Ayodhya verdict on #BabriMasjid demolition and construction of #RamMandir:

"The findings and orders of the special full bench of the Allahabad High Court on the successful Bhagwan Sri Ram suit......
...and the dismissed Wakf Board suit demand close examination. Central to the final order are two findings - that the disputed site in Ayodhya is the birthplace of Ram, and that it is a juridical entity. Both conclusions are of extremely doubtful legal tenability. In addition...
, is on the basis of the dubious legal proposition of faith and belief that the court arrives at a finding of legal and lawful ownership. The placing of idols in the disputed site in 1949 was as much an act of illegality as the events of 6 December 1992, but the court.......

Update #RamJanmabhoomi
CS Vaidyanathan continues to argue:
Janm Sthan is a Punya Sthaan - cannot be supplanted with any other piece of land.
Unlike other temples where the idol can be shifted, where the divinity is associated with the deity, #RamJanmabhoomi - the land is divine for that's where the deity is born.
Doctrine of adverse possession does not apply to #RamJanmabhoomi since Hindus never stopped worshiping the land.

CSV now citing cases in support of submission that if hindus are having the belief and faith to worship the place of birth, it should be treated as religious worship.

Why the ASI report of 2003 on #Ayodhya is not convincing ?

The report highlights bases of Pillars, Circular Shrine, Terracotta found during excavation of the site of demolished #BabriMasjid .

Pillar bases: But the scatters of bricks (claimed as bases) are not in a row

Scatters of bricks (claimed as pillar bases) are in different level- strata, so pillars emanating from them cud not have supported the same roof.

So these alleged 'pillar bases' could well just be cavities which were filled up with brick-bats & debris.

The fact that blocks are re-used in the masjid does not mean that the temple was destroyed to build it.

A 12th century construction, if it existed on the same site cud have been either a secular structure or a muslim religious site which re-used earlier material.
