#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...
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:

#THREAD to clear misconceptions that Lord Rama🕉️ is not worshipped much in South India:

We have 1000's of Rama temples in our South India..almost in every village, town of Telugu states.

Don't fall for lies by Le-Lis, #Dumeels, Hinduphobes & doubt Lord Rama's worship in South.

I believe that Respected @SadhguruJV ji used these words accidentally.

@SadhguruJV ji said "Maybe Rama is not such a big icon in the south."

That's false & only Anti-Hindu, Dravidian-#DMK gangs do such nonsense.
We South Hindus don't.

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

1/n
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.

2/n
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.
