The Secret History of Rama's appearance in Babri Masjid
Communists authors Krishna and Dhirendra Jha spin their own take on the Babri Masjid incident, no not the one in 1992 where the Masjid was destroyed by Kar Sevaks but the one in 22 DEC 1949. In the common man's memory the Babri Masjid incident is etched as an act of hyper Hinduism. In reality it has a deep political strategy at its core, this is true for both 1992 and 1949. In 1949, a sadhu, Abhiram Das, who was also a leader of one of the many Akharas in Ayodhya surreptitiously placed an idol of Lord Ram in the Babri Masjib, thus claiming it to be a place of worship for the Hindus and not Muslims. Thus kicking off the controversy of Babri Masjid which while writing this in May, 2015 is still unresolved..
