Twenty years back in Ayodhya ...

Twenty years back on Dec 6, 1992, a bunch of unruly fanatics belonging to a majority community under the leadership of their equally communal leaders demolished the Babri Masjid mosque in Ayodhya in UP, a historical monument which has been there for almost 300 years.

On Dec 6 th, 1992, I was in Goa having travelled through Bangalore Majestic Central railway station two days earlier. Then I had noticed the unruly Karsevaks on their way to Ayodhya heeding to the call from Advani to converge at Ayodhya and exert moral, political and physical pressure on the ruling party at the centre to allow a Ram temple to be built on the site where the two Ram Lingas had appeared mysteriously overnight in 1949.

Equally disturbing was the fact to note than on that cold night in 1949, when two Ram lingas appearing overnight inside the Babri Masjid, the same incident would balloon out to play such havoc in India leading to the rise of a communal party to power in Delhi for the first time in secular, democratic Indian history.

Hope we Indian remain very alert against such anti-social elements and protect the communal harmony and peace in the society for ever.
