Ayodhya is to Hindus what Mecca & Medina is to Islam. Lord Ram was born on January 10, 5114 BC.
Ramayana was written in 400 BC which described Ayodhya as birthplace of Lord Ram ; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valmiki
Prophet Mohamed was born some time 570/571 AD i.e almost 5600 years after birth of Lord Ram and 1000 years after Ramayana was written which described Ayodhya as birth place of Ram.
Its a case of simple arithmetic yet for the purpose of Muslims votes disputes lingers on. Will Muslims allow a church to be built at Mecca and Medina ? If not then Ayodhya belongs to Hindus the same way Mecca belongs to Muslims.
The Other Turkish name of Babri Mosque is "Masjid E Janmasthan" means "Mosque in the Birthplace" . That clearly indicates that the Mosque was built on the birthplace of Lord Ram.
The Judgement on lord Ram birthplace was given after an issue was framed as to whether
a) Disputed site was in fact the Birth Place of Lord Ram
b) The structure built by Mir baki was after demolition of an existing Hindu Temple at disputed site.
Archaeological excavations by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) in 1970, 1992 and 2003 in and around the disputed site clearly found the evidence indicating that a large Hindu complex existed on the site. In 2003, by the order of an Indian Court, The Archaeological Survey of India was asked to conduct a more in depth study and an excavation to ascertain the type of structure that was beneath the rubble. The summary of the ASI report indicated definite proof of a huge Temple under the mosque. In the words of ASI researchers, they discovered "distinctive features associated with... temples of north India". The excavations yielded:
"stone and decorated bricks as well as mutilated sculpture of a divine couple and carved architectural features, including foliage patterns, amalaka, kapotapali, doorjamb with semi-circular shrine pilaster, broke octagonal shaft of black schist pillar, lotus motif, circular shrine having pranjala (watershute) in the north and 50 pillar bases in association with a huge structure..”
The Indian High Court while giving its Judgment relied upon the report of Archaeological survey of India to decide the above issues in favor of Hindus. i.e. Mosque was built after demolition of Hindu Temple.
The Judgment though only gives 2/3 satisfaction to Hindus who hope that remaining 1/3rd satisfaction shall be given either by Muslims or by Supreme court of India.
Ayodhya prompts several thoughts relating to the Temple Mount. It shows that the Temple Mount dispute is far from unique. Muslims have habitually asserted the supremacy of Islam through architecture, building on top of the monuments of other faiths (as in Jerusalem and Ayodhya) or appropriating them (e.g. the Ka'ba in Mecca and the Hagia Sophia in Constantinople or ground Zero in New York).
I wish my all those Muslim brothers for their prosperity and happiness for accepting Sri Ram Mandir and showing tolerance in the world's largest democratic country. Because I believe that even BIG BROTHERS also have some demands which needs to be fulfilled and cannot be expected to sacrifice EVERYTIME. Secularism doesn't mean SACRIFICE done by MAJORITY only.
