Truth hits hard


I’ve just finished a book in one go. The name of the book is: Ayodhya: The Dark Night - The secret history of Ram’s appearance in Babri Masjid, by Delhi-based journalists Kishore Jha and Dhirendra K Jha (he’s with the English magazine OPEN), published by Harper-Collins and price at Rs. 499.

“ 22 December 1949: A conspiracy that began with the assassination of M K Gandhi in 1948, culminated in the execution of the Ayodhya strategy. Late that night, a little known sadhu, Abhiram Das and his followers entered the Babri Masjid and planted an idol of Ram inside it.”

Since then, Hindus have been claiming that it’s their (fictitious) Ram Lulla’s birthplace. Modern India’s worst riots took place following Babri Masjid’s demolition by kar sevaks on December 6, 1992 and the subsequent massive anti-Muslim riots in Bombay, followed by serial bomb blasts on March 12, 1993 as a retaliatory action. Even the “’learned” Hindu judges passed the verdict that Ram (a mythical figure like Krishna, who never existed) was indeed born at the place where Babri Masjid was situated.  

Some morons may argue that since the mosque was abandoned, Hindus took over it. Ridiculous! Babri Masjid always belonged to the Muslims and Namaaz was offered till only a few hours before the idols were placed there in the same night. The mosque was never abandoned for even one single Namaaz.

The judiciary has never been sympathetic to Muslims and their just causes. Yaqub Memon was hanged for his alleged role in Bombay blasts, but what about those who demolished Babri Masjid and wreaked havoc in Bombay killing 900 Muslims. Why haven’t they been booked so far despite Srikrishna Commission’s detailed report that clearly indicates that many Hindu leaders were directly involved in provoking the mindless, marauding crowds of Hindu fanatics. Late Bal Thackrey, Kalyan Singh and L K Advani were never booked or questioned for their vicious roles in Babri Masjid demolition and the aftermath.  

This book has been written by two Hindus (Brahmins, at that) and not by any Muslim. It’s time to accept the fact that Babri Masjid is solely the property of Muslims and the Hindus are usurpers here.

I’ve a hunch that this Hindu government will soon proscribe this volatile book. So pick it up before it’s banned in a pro-ban country like India.
