What’s so curious about demolishing a mosque? Unlike a temple, it’s not the house of a deity. Saudis demolished even Prophet Mohammad’s mosque. Even temples are demolished after taking proper care of the deity.
The Gyan Vapi mosque was built by demolishing the original Vishwanath temple in 1669 AD, by the Sufi Mughal emperor Aurangzeb. The grand structure was blasted by cannons. Read this extract from Maasir-i-Alamgiri by Saqi Mustad Khan to understand the extent of Islamic hate:
Sufi Emperor Aurangzeb did better in Mathura. 1669 Ramzan was celebrated by demolishing the temple of Keshav Rai. In Benares, they could not find the murti as it had been spirited away by pujaris. In Mathura, the murtis were placed below the steps of a mosque - Saqi Mustad Khan
