Some excerpts from Meenakshi Jain’s book The Battle For Rama
#AyodhyaHiddenFacts I had the pleasure of meeting Maam recently. Wonderful, unassuming person.
Akbar’s court recorded Ram Janmbhoomi at Ayodhya as sacred ground and Rama’s birthplace, indicating that withi a hundred years of Babur tearing Ram Mandir down, Hindus had already reclaimed the place. #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
The area was referred to as Masjid Janmasthan in court proceedings by Muslim petitioners as far back as 1858. #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
British official gazetteer noted the black stone pillars of the Babri Masjid from which all traces of images on their bases had been cut off “to satisfy the conscience of the bigot”. #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
Inscription no. 10 - stone slab on the outside of the central arch of the masjid “records the erection of the mosque which was built on the same spot where the old temple of Janam Asthanam of Ram Chandra was”. #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
K K Muhammad, the archaeologist who was part of the team that led the excavations at Ram Janmbhoomi and convulsively proved the existence of temple, put the blame of current dispute firmly on Leftist historians who instigated and gave false hopes to the BMAC. #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
#AyodhyaHiddenFacts KK Muhammad’s talk on the excavations is a must hear in this context.
William Finch, sent to Ayodhya for expedition by the East India Company between 1608 and 1611, also recorded the ruins of Ram Kot and Hindus reverence for the site. #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
Several accounts of foreign travelers and British administrators also corroborated the destruction of the temple at Ram’s birthplace by a Mughal ruler. Detailed sketches of the site were made by them. #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
I’m not posting any more pics from the book, buy and read it 😬
Meanwhile you can listen to Meenakshi Jain ma’am speaking on #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
Ending this tweet series with a fav pic of me with the diminutive giant, Meenakshi Jain ma’am at Delhi #HinduCharter event. 😀
