जय श्री राम।
I don't usually make threads but here are my two cents on the #RamMandir & #FaizKhan controversy:

We can't deny that Sir KK Muhammad fought for truth all his life against Jihadis & has greater contribution than most Hindus, specially like Rajeev Dhawan & DN Jha. (1)
Also, the role of political parties has been instrumental.

While BJP, as vidharmis always said "Tareekh nahi batayenge" never gave a date yet amidst all the criticism even from patrons about it just being votebank topic; clinged firmly & believe it or not, strengthened cause.(2)
Few others supportered, notable was Shivsena under Balasaheb Thackrey who openly endorsed #RamMandir & called demolition of #BabriMasjid

But list of opposing parties is long: Congress, SP, RJD, DMK, AAP and so on. Congress under #AntoniaMaino even claimed Ram as fictitious.(3)

Some folks have asked for basic information about the #BabriMasjid, so here goes.

Warning: Only read if you’re interested in history, not communal politics.

#THREAD
The Babri Masjid was probably built in 1528 by a general of Babur. At the time, it likely wasn’t a big deal. Babur doesn’t even mention it in his memoirs.
Babri Masjid may have been built over temple ruins, but, owing to bad and politicised archaeology, we aren’t sure.

If it was built on temple ruins, they could be Jain, Hindu, or Buddhist in origin. They also could’ve been ruins for hundreds of years by the 1520s (or not).

Young Educated Muslim boys and girls have always been pain in the eyes of the HindutwaRashtra regime.
Be it any political party, they have always designed and supported draconian laws to contain muslims in the name of law and order.

1/n
The government on a regular basis carried out planned #Genocide of Muslims which was never reported to the outside world.
After the #BabriMasjid martyrdom Muslims started questioning the political parties who pretended to be the messiah of Muslims.
That created a panic.

2/n
Laws like TADA,POTA,MCOCA were brought to picture.
Young Muslim men from #Kashmir and other parts of the country were picked up under false charges only to be found innocent decades after rotting in jail.
Many Muslim men were encountered to fuel the anti-muslim narrative

'Ram or Rehman'

"Rama" or "Ram" is a major diety in Hindu mythology. He is the 7th Avatar of Lord 'Vishnu' and considered as the 'Supreme Being' and most caring towards other creatures. The famous story of 'Ram & Ravan' is about the same 'Ram'.

Very few people know that instead
of #Ayodhya, where #RamMandir is being built replacing vandalized #BabriMasjid in order to highlight it as Ram's birthplace, a place astride Indus Highway in Pakistan's South Western District #DeraIsmailKhan #KhyberPakhtunkhwa is believed to be the actual birthplace of Ram, by
many in sub continent.
Earlier known 'Ram Dheri' & now as 'Rehman Dheri', the site dates back to almost 3300 years from now, predating #Harrappa (3000 years) & #MohenJoDaro (2500 years). Though utter disenchantment at first sight, the hidden glory lays buried in the sands of time

I don't have much expectation from the judiciary anymore. But here are key facts from #BabriMasjid demolition criminal case:

LK Advani, MM Joshi, Uma Bharti & others related to Sangh Parivar were charged with criminal conspiracy by special CBI court in 2017. (1/n)
These BJP leaders watched as the 16th-century #BabriMasjid was razed. They are facing trial after 27yrs of the incident.

There is “sufficient evidence on record to frame charges” against those #BJP leaders under conspiracy and other charges, the special #CBI judge had said (2/n)
2 FIRs filed in #BabriMasjid demolition case.
First filed against karsevaks for “actual demolition of mosque”. Second against Advani, MM Joshi, Uma Bharti, Vinay Katiyar, others for delivering ‘communal’ speeches before the demolition. (3/n)

Shahid Ganj Gurdwara in Lahore, Pakistan has striking resemblance with the #BabriMasjid dispute. The Gurdwara was a mosque until 1799 until Maharaja Ranjit Singh defeated Afghans & captured the city. It was soon converted to a Gurdwara. 1/n
Muslims, in 1925, took a procession to the Gurdwara Shahid Ganj, and police fired at the Muslim crowd. In 1926, however, Muslim League led by MA Jinnah assumed power in Punjab legislative assembly. Muslim members in the assembly presented a resolution 2/n
to give the Gurdwara back to Muslims to start a mosque at the site. MA Jinnah, however, rejected the resolution saying it will open an endless Pandora's box all over India. The Gurdwara remains there till date, with all its dignity. One important fact to remember here is that 3/n

Christmas is the calendrical.equivalent of #BabriMasjid. A date chosen to erase a sacred pagan festival. It has absolutely nothing to do with "Jesus" but is a symbol of Church's Imperialism and erasure of the native.

For pagans, cutting a tree was a serious act, Nature was sacred, not to be destroyed willy-nilly. Cutting an entire tree and dragging it indoors for decoration is an absurd act.

Perhaps it was done precisely *because* it was sacred, an act of subjugation of pagan traditions?
Many other parts of Christmas like mistletoe and holly are directly appropriating pagan traditions. In fact, celebrating Christmas as a pagan festival and dropping the #FakeNews of “Jesus” may be the only authentic way to celebrate it.

Laldas was appointed by a court of law as the chief priest in Ramjanmabhoomi temple in 1983. He vehemently opposed VHP.& demanded advani stop the rath yatra. He insisted ‘Hindus&Muslims of Ayodhya &Faizabad can resolve the issue themselves,’
He was shot dead.
On March 1, 1992, he was removed from his position by the Kalyan Singh govt. On Dec 6, 1992, the Babri Masjid was destroyed. In these months, Laldas feared for his life & approached the local administration in Faizabad seeking protection, but his request went unheeded.
in an interview to #MadhuKishwar in 1992, he pointed out that 50-60 mahants had been murdered all over Ayodhya. “I wonder how a person like me is still alive”, he said in that conversation.

1.Hindutva politicians incite mobs to destroy a place of worship belonging to a minority community
2. Hindutva politicians win elections on the back of spreading hate towards same minority
3. Senior Judges rubber stamp the original actions of the Hindutva Mobs

#BabriMasjid
The worlds largest democracy has today exposed the dangerous faultlines with the whole concept of democracy. Thus, when dangerous demagogues exploit fear & prejudices of the majority voters, the lives and freedoms of minority communities are easily sacrificed
#BabriMasjid
As we have witnessed with Trump's America, Brexit Britain, France, Italy, Austria etc etc, once a mob is incited, the supposedly decent elements of the majority communities become powerless.

#India's Supreme Court clears the way for construction of #Hindu temple on site of destroyed #BabriMasjid in #Ayodhya.

I've been following this issue for 30+ years. Here's a thread analyzing the #AyodhyaJudgment:
bbc.com/news/world-asi…
2/n #AyodhyaJudgment
-I first visited #Ayodhya (& #BabriMasjid) in 1990: before the masjid was destroyed, before I entered the field of #anthropology. I went there while researching my first book, "Arrow of the Blue-Skinned God": A re-tracing of the #Hindu epic #Ramayana...
3/n #AyodhyaJudgment
...In my book, I take what I hope is an even-handed approach. For what it's worth, I've received approving messages from #Hindutva activists & #secularists alike. You can judge for yourself:

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...
,...it 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.......
