Watched #Shikara.
It has secularised the #HinduGenocide in #Kashmir and romanticised it for the mega bucks it will make.
Our homes and murders are a mere prop in this story.
Massacres, rapes and vandalised temples must've been too gory to qualify for even a prop, in a love story.
It reeks of the bhaichara politics of @VVCFilms right through
Blaming American guns
Disparaging the #Ayodhya movement
Rationalising #Jihad and cleverly masking its underlying #HinduHate
Glossing over the judicial apathy
Mocking at the help rendered by a 'Party' in the camps...
Airbrushed #Islam as a non-issue
Underplayed #Jihad as mere stray events
Exaggerated exceptions of individual warmth over deep society wide hostility.
Gross simplification of the issue of our return.
#Shikara like #Padmavat turns #HinduGenocide into entertainment for commerce.

1) Was super lucky to hear the legendary archeologist Prof KK Muhammed today in a program organized by @namo_bharath.

Will post his exemplary #Ayodhya presentation in multiple videos in this thread.

Watch ALL parts. The best set of proofs of a bhavya #RamMandir that existed.
2) Prof KK Muhammed started with how the great archeologist BB Lal. He tried linking Vayu Purana's flood with in Mahabharata. Moved from Hastinapura to Kaushambi. Probed the cultural continuation. 

Archeologists used C14 dating, Thermo luminescence dating and more.

3) BB Lal's excavations established 1100 BCE date for an event in Mahabharata.

Then BB Lal came to #Ayodhya during 1976-77 time. 

Explored before excavation for contours of the area. Found symbolisms of Ganga standing on a croc. Yamuna on tortoise. Could only be in temples!

A thread about #Udupi Pejavara Matha's Vishvesha Tirtha Swamy Ji:

1) ~800 yrs ago, Madhwacharya started a unique parampara in Udupi - 8 mathas & a paryaya system. Each Swamy would worship Udupi Krishna for 2 years. Then the next.

Till now 300 Swamy's have followed this system.
2) Pejavara is 1 of Udupi's 8 mathas. Vishvesha Tirtha was very lucky to get 5 Paryaya chances. First after Vyasa Raya!

He had been a Sanyasi for 82 years!!!

Incidentally, he was given Sanyasa deeksha at Hampi, the capital of the richest kingdom on the planet 500 years ago.
Udupi Pejavara Sri's social consciousness was awesome.

Be of Latur's earthquake victims in Maharashtra, earthquake victims in Gujarat, flood or drought victims in Karnataka  or Nagapattinam's Tsunami victims in Tamil Nadu, he rushed to help people everywhere.

#Ayodhya has thrown up a question repeatedly-
Why must we punish the present generation of #Muslims for the crimes of medieval invaders?

Why not ask the Muslims-
Can’t you give up a few horrendous symbols of loot, medieval brutality and humiliation to #Hindus?

#Kashi #Mathura
For #Ayodhya the court ordered excavation and detailed examination to finally conclude that there was a temple underneath the mosque.
In #Kashi and #Mathura it takes just the naked eye and common sense to reach that conclusion.
Or, are the apologists busy inventing a new criteria
@asadowaisi keeps asking if the court on #Ayodhya would still have given the same verdict, had the mosque not been demolished.

The answer is, may be not.

Then, the question is, should an illegal and forcible demolition be a condition prerequisite for the #Hindus to get justice?

This is a story about the 'City of Temples' - Jammu, a Hindu majority area in an otherwise Musl!m majority Jammu & Kashmir.

A story about the historic Kali temple located in the historic Bahu Fort in Jammu.

A story of how #Ayodhya is connected to this temple.

'Bawe wali Mata', as we lovingly call her, is housed in a temple inside the historic 'Bahu Fort'. Bahu Fort was built by Raja Bahulochan around 3000 years ago.

The temple is believed to have been built during 8th century in 1822 after Maharaja Gulab Singh came to power (below)
It is believed that "Ma Kali" appeared in the dream of Pandit Jagat Ram Sharma and told him about her appearance in the form of a 'Pindi' (stone) buried on the hilltop. He found the stone and the temple was constructed at that spot. That "Pindi" is believed to be from #Ayodhya

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…
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.

#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:…

-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:…

News Broadcasting Standards Authority has issued an advisory for journalists and media houses reporting on the #AyodhyaHearing.

We'll be watching how TV media reports on proceedings with quick updates.…
Times Now is keeping its coverage restrained, noting the verdict will give very little "wiggle room". It sticks to summarising arguments by both sides.
Zee News has a constant hum of Ram bhajans playing as background score, even as the anchor declares that the verdict today is limited to a title suit.

•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.
•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.
•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!

#Thread on what I understood of the #AyodhyaHearing #RamMandir case so far, and why I think verdict should be with Muslim party or amicably distributed among all.
In entire 40 day period only fact proven beyond doubt is that a mosque existed for 450 yrs, destroyed on Dec 6, 1992. Everything else is faith based, lacking scientific evidence. A principle of law is, you cannot benefit from your own malafide act (in this case, babri demolition)
The Hindu party's claim dating back to 1886 is that #Ayodhya is believed to be birthplace of Lord Ram (a deity as per Ramayana a mythology). Archaeologists discover historical facts based upon excavations but nothing found in Ayodhya proving Ram as real biological person.

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.

Day 40 of the hearing in the #Ayodhyacase begins with the #CJI making it clear that arguments will close at 5 pm today. "Enough is enough," says Justice Gogoi.

Sr adv CS Vaidyanathan resumes his arguments, saying the #Muslim side hasn't given any evidence on exclusive possession or title.

Vaidyanathan argues there could be some evidence that the #Muslim side offered Friday prayers at the disputed site between 1857 & 1934. "But there is absolutely no evidence that they offered any prayer after that. On the other hand, #Hindus continued to worship".

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.......
