The Whole Case Of Ayodhya's Mandir-Masjid Issue !!!

            309th BLOG -->>

        (3 Days Left)

                Today the most historical and the most important and significant decision regarding the Ayodhya case is out by Allahabad High Court. The only sad news is that - This is not the last and the final verdict as people having objections on this judgment can move forward to Supreme Court and then more higher and this case will take more decade to get the final verdict out. This is sad. I'll talk about the verdict later but I would like to give a timeline about how this case started and what all happened in this approximately 500 years in respect to this case.

1528 : Babri Masjid is built, apparently at the behest of thie first Mughal Emperor, Babar, by his general Mir Baqi.

1853 : 1st recorded incident of violent conflict over the Mandir-Masjid between Hindus and Muslims. The Nawab of Awadh, Wajad Ali Shah, tackled the problem then.

1885 : A Hindu priest filed a petition for building a temple next to the mosque but was denied permission.

1949 : An idol of Lord Ram mysteriously appeared inside the mosque. Hindus began offering prayers. Local Muslims protested and both parties filed civil suits, the city magistrate attached the property and looked the gates but prayer continued.

1950 : Local resident Gopal Singh filed a suit before Faizabad's civil judge on Jan 16 asking for unrestricted Darshan. R.D. Paramhans too filed a similar suit.

1959 : Religious sect Nirmohi Akhara case claiming rights over the land.

1961 : The Sunni Waqf board put in its claim for the restoration of the mosque.

1984 : VHP launched a temple construction movement and on Oct 7, a liberation march from Sitamarhi in Bihar to Lucknow reached Ayodhya for an oath-taking ceremony.

1986 : A man called U.C. Pandey filed the case saying the locked gates interfered with the right to worship. On 1st Feb, the Faizabad session judge allowed Hindus to worship at the site. The VHP celebrates the decision. The Babri Masjid Action Committee is formed within a month.

1988-89 : Nearly 2,00,000 shilan pujas are held all over India leading to riots, main in Bihar. The Allahabad High court issued an interim directive to maintain the status quo pending final judgment. All district court cases were transferred to it.

1989, Nov 9 : P.M. Rajiv Gandhi allowed shilanyas at an undisputed site before the Lok Sabha elections. This is followed by rioting.

1990 : BJP President L.K. Advani went on a rath Yatra and is arrested in Bihar. 1000s of kar sevaks gather in Ayodhya, the mosque is partially damaged and 30 are killed in police firing.

Oct, 1991 : Places of Worship Bill passed by the Lok Sabha said all religious places would be maintained according to their status on Aug 15, 1947. Ayodhya was left out on the grounds that the matter was in court. The UP government took possession of the 2.77 acres adjoining the disputed site, ostensibly for pilgrim facilities. Babri Masjid Action Committee challenged the notification.

Nov 28 , 1992 : The SC accepted the plea by the UP government to allow the singing of the hymns at the site. The state govt assured the court that the structure would be protected.

December 6, 1992 : The Babri Masjid demolished by kar sevaks. Rioting broke out all over India, leaving 1,200 people dead.

January 7, 1993 : The Centre acquired 67 acres surrounding the disputed site and quashed all pending suits through an Ordinance. 

Oct, 24, 1994 : The SC rejected the single point presidential reference on whether or not a temple existed before the mosque. It upheld the Ayodhya acquisition of 1993 but rejected quashing pending cases.

Feb, 2002 : VHP set a deadline of March 15 to begin construction. Hundreds of volunteers converged on site.

March 13, 2002 : The SC ruled out Bhoomi Pooja at Ayodhya.

June 2003 : Archaelogical Survey of India, which started digging on the orders of the Allahabad High Court, said that the remains similar to that of the temple were found during excavations. 

July 2005 : Terror attack at the disputed place. 6 killed by 5 terrorists.

Nov 24, 2009 : Liberhan commission report tabled in both houses of Parliament. The commission indicted A.B. Vajpayee.

Sep 28, 2010 : The SC dismissed the plea to defer judgment on the title suit. It had earlier stayed the judgment for a week on September 23. 

September 30 : Today the three judges sat and came out with the verdict at Allahabad High court. The land is divided into 3 parts. 1 part is given to Wakf Board to build a Mosque. 1 part is give nto Hindu Mahasabha to maintain their temples and idols. 1 part is given to the Nirmohi Akhaada. This judgment is appreciated by each and every Indian. The riot was expected today but the Indians showed the real attitude of Unity In Diversity. Everyone accepted the verdict except Wakf Board. They will be heading to Supreme Court. Whatever !!! I am personally happy with the verdict. Mandir and Masjid both will stand adjacent to each other. What can be better than this? I am in support of this judgment. Hope everyone allows this and very soon the construction starts. Lets pray. I will not speak more about this issue right now as there are more courts to talk about this. I will come with my views when all the judgment and the final verdict will be out at once. I am waiting for it eagerly.
