Why is building Ram Mandir at Ayodhya so important for Hindus and Muslims?
The basic things that come into everyone mind that why is building Ram Mandir in Ayodhya is so important for Hindus as well as Muslims of India.
What is the long-standing Ayodhya/Ram Mandir dispute all about?
It boils down to a plot of land in the city of Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh. The site that is regarded among Hindus as the birthplace of Lord Rama also historically locates Babri Mosque.
The conflict of history
The land on which the Babri mosque was built in 1528 is the ‘Ram Janmabhoomi’ (birthplace of the god-king Rama). But, Mir Baqi, one of Mughal king Babur’s generals, is said to have destroyed a pre-existing temple of Rama and built a mosque called Babri Masjid (Babur’s mosque) at the site.
Both the communities have worshiped at the “mosque-temple”, Muslims inside the mosque and Hindus outside it. However, in 1885 a petition was filed by the head of the Nirmohi Akhara asking for permission to offer prayers to Ram Lalla inside what was known as the Babri Masjid.
The permission was not given but in 1886, district Judge of Faizabad court FEA Chamier gave his verdict and said, “It is most unfortunate that a masjid should have been built on land specially held sacred by the Hindus, but as that event occurred 356 years ago, it is too late now to remedy the grievance.”
It was in 1950 that a local resident Gopal Singh Visharad filed a complaint in the civil courts requesting permission to offer prayers in the mosque where the idols were installed.
The Allahabad High Court ruled the disputed land in Ayodhya will be divided into three parts. The 2.77 acres land will be divided between Hindus, Muslims and the Nirmohi Akhara.
A bench of Justices Aftab Alam and R.M. Lodha stayed the September 30, 2010 judgment of the Lucknow Bench of the High Court after admitting a batch of appeals from both Hindu and Muslim organizations. The bench considered the verdict by the Allahabad High Court as ‘strange’ as no party prayed for it.
The Bench said the status quo at the disputed site would remain as directed by the 1994 Constitution Bench and the order passed on March 13-14, 2002.
In today’s post, we are going to discuss every aspect on why we need to build Ram Mandir in India as soon as possible.
This is Mecca, the birthplace of Prophet Mohammad :
Beautiful isn’t it?
This is Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus Christ :
All my Christian brethren must be feeling joyful upon seeing this picture
Now I would like you to just invest a few minutes of your life and look at these pictures…
1. Akshardham (HINDU) temple, Delhi
2. Laxmi Narayan (HINDU ) temple, HYDERABAD
3. Virupaksha Temple (Lord Shiva), Hampi
4. Kailashnathar Temple ( dedicated to Lord Shiva), KANCHIPURAM
5. Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple ( dedicated to Hindu deity Lord Vishnu )
6.Meenakshi Amman Temple (HINDU)
7. Khajuraho Temples (HINDU/JAIN)
The list can go long… but to be more civilized and not grabbing much of your time.
One question I would like to ask you:-
Were these ugly places or beautiful as heaven?
Now you may be wondering that’s vague argument.
But wait, these are ‘HINDU’ temple, but few ‘HINDU ‘ don’t see these place but what do they see?
They see this picture given below.
This is Ayodhya, the birthplace of Lord Ram.
Will any Hindu feel ecstatic about it? NO
There are many reasons for building a Mandir (temple) in Ayodhya for Lord Rama. I am listing down a few here.
There is enough historical evidence available to prove that Lord Rama was born in Ayodhya at the Ramjanmabhoomi location. Different documents throughout millennia have emphatically noted Ayodhya as the birthplace of Lord Rama. Sufficient proof is also available to prove that Mughal invader Babur destroyed the existing Ram Mandir to build a masjid on the same location. And Lord Rama being a major deity of the Sanatan Dharma, it is only correct that Hindus rebuild Ram Mandir at Ayodhya and reclaim what rightfully belongs to the Hindus.
The Ram Janmabhoomi belongs to the Hindus. There are various pieces of evidence regarding this :
All Persian, Arabic and Urdu history written in 18–19th century closely says that Babar destroyed Ram Mandir :
Tarik-e-Avdi: It was written in 1869 but published in 1969. The author of this book is an eyewitness account of developments that took place there like Hindus paying bribes to the incharge of Babri Masjid to be able to worship in Masjid.
Akbar gave land to Hanuman Tila which was renewed in 1973 and the scribe says “This grant being renewed, I am writing this from the Janmbhumi of Ram”.
Many left historians proclaim that Sri Tulsidasji never mentioned about the destruction of Ram Mandir in his text :
In a lesser known text, Doha Sataka, Tulsidas Ji clearly mentions, in the 5th verse, about the destruction of Ram Temple
From 1822 this case has been recorded in district courts :
An official, Hafizullah, submitted a note in Faizabad district court saying that Babri Masjid was built after destroying Ram Temple
Allahabad High Court said that till 1855 the Hindus had free access to the Masjid.
A thanedar of Awadh filed an FIR in 1858 stating that 25 Sikhs have started Hawan in Masjid and have written ‘Ram’ inside the Masjid. Thus there was a constant tussle for the claim on Ram Mandir.
In 1949, an idol of Lord Ram was placed in Ayodhya and no one protested. But when Mr. Nehru came to know about it, he wrote to the CM of UP that this will damage India’s relations with Pakistan and Kashmir(I have no idea how!!).
When Babri Masjid was brought down in 1992, Vishnu Hari inscription was discovered. It tells that some king of some state had built Ram Mandir.
Archeological excavations done so far clearly point towards the existence of an ancient temple complex at the location. The leftist and pseudo secular historians and archeologists have often denied this but it is essential that the excavated materials be examined by third-party experts within the confines of Indian law. Finding of pillars typical of temple architecture and many more Hindu motifs like bells, flowers, conch shells, Swastika, Om and Vedic designs prove that there was definitely a temple at the location. In fact, several renowned and neutral archeologists have highlighted the necessity for further excavations at the site but this has not happened. If this is done then we will get more substantial evidence to prove the existence of the original Ram Mandir at the location.
ASI’s findings :
ASI was called to excavate the site in 2003 by the Allahabad HC.
In the 10th century, a huge temple existed there.
In the 12 century, a new temple was built over the previous one.
For 65 years, all court decisions went in our favor:
December 1949 for Murti Pujan.
February 1986 for the opening of locks.
November 1992: For the laying of foundation stone.
December 1992: Permission for the makeshift temple.
September 2010: The sanctum sanctorum was given to Ram Lalla, proving that it is indeed Ram Janmsthan. The court gave 2/3rd of land to the Hindus and the rest to the Muslims.
From times immemorial, India has been home to Hinduism, previously known as Sanatan Dharma or Vedic Dharma. Other religions arrived relatively at a later period. Hindus have always believed that Ayodhya is the birthplace and the Capital City of Lord Rama. Our scriptures have always said this. So it is only right that Hindus are allowed to build a Ram Mandir at the location.
If something originally belonged to the Hindus and it was usurped by the others then legally, Hindus have every right to take it back.
Muslims need not make this an ego issue but rather they should respect the fact that India has always been a culturally Hindu nation. And for reasons aforementioned, Muslims must amicably let Hindus take back what is the matter of great faith for them. Lord Rama equally belongs to them and Muslims must respect this. Their ancestry and cultural subconscious are all about being a Hindu and there is no point in denying your roots! So let Hindus rebuild Ram Mandir and it will only make the nation stronger and peaceful. Jai Hind, Jai Shri Ram!
To all those who wish a hospital in place of a temple :
The hospital can be built anywhere but the spiritual significance of the land demands a temple be built there. Do I want to ask such people that if their land tomorrow gets into any dispute will they then advocate for a Hospital there?
To all those who keep asking “Why dig the history and change things that were a result of Kingly conflicts?” :
The Rashtrapati Bhawan was constructed by Lutyens for the Viceroys of British India and was called Viceroy’s House. It was only after Dr. Rajendra Prasad became the President of India in 1950 that its name was changed.
The name of Calcutta was changed to Kolkata.
There have been changes made to buildings, cities etc. to erase the history of invaders. So why not build a Ram Mandir to erase the history of the barbaric Babar.
Ram is an exemplar of the Dharmic traditions of this land of Bharat. Even our Constitution contains the painting of Lord Ram :
Even Gandhiji’s notion of Swaraj was Ram Rajya. Lord Ram is in the heart of every Indian and we have spontaneous devotion for Lord Ram.
Because India is a Hindu majority nation, Hindus are taking the legal route otherwise the discourse would have been different if it was some other country.
Jai Shri Ram!
