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.

So here’s my legal analysis of the #BabriMasjidCase. Why the Supreme Court of India was wrong. On the law. And a few points that signal this wasn’t about the law. #lawtwitter #appellatetwitter /
Let's look at the controlling case. There is a Sikh Gurdwara in Lahore. There is no dispute that it was a mosque. Ranjit Singh the one-eyed, the only emperor in history from the Punjab seized the mosque. In 1799 it was converted into a Gurdwara. /
In the 19th century the British tossed out Ranjit Singh's successors. And the Muslims petitioned for the return of the Gurdwara to become a mosque. The British, deciding that it would open a whole can of worms in a country thousands of years old demurred. The Muslims sued. /

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.

-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...

...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.......
