It’s the 25th anniversary of the Babri Masjid Demolition drive today. 25 years back news channels across India aired that horrifying incident that shook the moral fabric of our nation.

Indians across the world were divided over this incident. The Babri Masjid not only propelled BJP in to National Politics overnight, it also had lasting repercussions that still make their presence felt even after two decades. Babri Masjid demolition ruined Hindi-Muslim relations forever.

It seems that the skeletons of Babri Masjid will continue to haunt our country. Just when we thought the matter would be sorted amicably Sitaram Yechury, CPM General Secretary was quoted as saying, ‘”Today happens to be the 25th anniversary of Babri Masjid demolition that remains to be a black spot in the history of modern India. That has been the biggest assault on the secular democratic foundation of our country.”

The Supreme Court has fixed February 8th as the day of the hearing for the Ayodhya -Babri Masjid dispute. Earlier, the honourable Supreme Court had quashed Kapil Sibal’s plea to postpone the hearing to post-2019 elections.

Narendra Modi ji today remarked on the Congress’s antics on sensationalizing the Babri Masjid issue and playing politics over the same by linking it to the General Elections. He also stated that on one hand Rahul Gandhi is eager to visit Hindu temples in election-bound Gujarat but are delaying the hearing of the construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya.

The CPM along with other Left Parties have observed Black Day to commemorate the demolition of the Babri Masjid.

We would love to hear your unbiased views on the disputed land of Ayodhya and the steps that should be implemented to resolve the debate. Comment right away below. #BeFearless
