-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:

#Baghdadi was similar to a man our history books conveniently chose to forget. Minhaj-us-Siraj was a trusted Turk cleric who wrote 𝘛𝘢𝘣𝘢𝘲𝘢𝘵-𝘪-𝘕𝘢𝘴𝘪𝘳𝘪. This book remains the only source of #History of Bengal in Delhi sultanate till 1259 AD, when it ends abruptly.
Tabaqat-i-Nasiri chronicles a 𝘒𝘩𝘢𝘭𝘫𝘪 worse than 𝘈𝘭𝘭𝘢𝘶𝘥𝘥𝘪𝘯. Ikhtiyar ad din Muhammad bin Bakhtiyar Khalji was a #Turkish slave from Afghanistan, in search of military opportunities.He was denied service by 𝘎𝘩𝘶𝘳𝘪𝘥s and 𝘈𝘪𝘣𝘢𝘬 of Delhi.

Babul, a #Hindu refugee from Kutupalong refugee camp said "Border Guard Police, Myanmar Army, (#Buddhist) villagers and Thet people" were involved in the #HinduMassacre in #KhaMaungSeik, #Maungdaw, #Myanmar.

Another example of why you should always read the small print. Despite the #ClickBait title, the author himself agrees that the effect is not #Sanskrit specific.
Beats me as to why you would say one thing in the title and another in your article.

Dome of the temple was capped by Kalasha.

Fortunately there are various temples same features which survived the wrath of Islamic invaders. See the one in below link
