Allahabad HC judge announces Ayodhya verdict
Babri Mosque and Indian Secularism

-Dr. Abdul Ruff

------------------ The fictitious case by Hindu terrorists and fanatic elements against India's Babri Mosque, destroyed by these rogue sections among the Hindus, is now udner the consideration of Supreme Court and Hindus terrorists have already pressed for Judiciary support against Babri Mosque by enacting another terror attack, now in Varanasi- a major Hindu pilgrimage spot in Uttar Pradesh where the Babri Mosque stood as national symbol of unity. . They wanted to place the blame for the terror attack on Muslims, expecting some disgruntled Indian agents among Muslims to take the "responsibility" for the crime.


The Hindu Jihadis have not understood that the destruction of grand Babri Mosque is the crudest sign of Hindu brutality on Indian secularism and democracy and the ghastly demolition of faith clearly signifies poor destiny of Muslims in India. After nearly two decades, the Allahabad High Court has come out with a pro-Hindutva judgment on the ghastly Babri Mosque demotion case.

One of key policy of post-Independent India has been promote Hinduism and extra Hindu interests in and out of India which requires defaming of Islam and belittling, insulting, injuring Muslims. Indian regime pursued the destruction of grand Babri Mosque in a systematic manner. The main idea is to finally deny that there was Mosque at the site.

First, an independent India, which got freedom from England at midnight, threw away the Babri Mosque Imam at midnight, locked the Mosque, denied permission to Muslims to worship inside or near the Mosque- there has been terror situation created by UP and central polices ; the, India opened the Mosque to enable the Hindu fanatics to put some structural filth inside the Mosque and let Hindus do nonsense there freely with state protection; Then, Indian decided to remove the Mosque and leave the space with a Hindutva structure for some years so that the Hindus could claim a their own structure there; Then India began unleashing a fantastic tactic of using the expression "structure" in place of Babri Mosque only to make Hindu terrorists to be bold to demolish it like jungle moneys and not be scare of about God's wrath or state punishment for the Hindu Al-Qaeda terror attck on on the Mosque; The, extremist Hindus were mobilized by effectively using extra political campaigns and media and TV serial Ramayana and this frenzy led to the destruction of the Mosque witnessed by the entire world while the BJP led fanatic politician syndicates rejoiced; Then quickly, Indian military terrorists created a structure of bricks; But this also led l to the murder of many Muslims in the country, creating new breed of Hindutva pseudo-patriots like N. Modi who use anti-Islamism to garner Hindu votes.

The destruction of Babri Mosque was a calculated move by India to remove the obstacle - the mosque - to enable the Hindutva elements to successfully pursue the case with able support from pro-Hindu judiciary. Indian regime knows with so much of anti-Islamic Muslims created by 'socialization and politicization" processes since 1947 and Islamophobia and Osamaphobia doing their jobs, the Mosque would lose its own case in favor of fanatic Hindu criminals. India has enough faith in the judiciary media, the street criminals and other anti-social networks among Muslims to create wedge in any Islamic grouping to defend the Mosque. As a result of political pressure on Mosques, there is hardly any mentioning of Babri Mosque in the Friday sermons. Obviously, Muslims are part of Indian fanatic society.

The "historic" date December 6, 1992, became stained by one of the most horrible symbols of Indian secularism and democracy, and the tragic event cannot be forgotten by any right thinking person irrespective of the nature of their religious beliefs. The horrendous act of vandalism by misguided Hindu extremists and the destruction of the Grand Babri Mosque in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh was carelessly scrawled into history by the strategist terrorists operating against Islam. They arrogantly operated in India under the full shield from Indian intelligence, media, military and other security services.


The memory of Babri's destruction remains a milestone in the secular attitude of Indian government toward Muslims and Islam. The loss will be remembered as long as there is a void where the grand mosque once stood. The Government of India promised to rebuild the mosque after it was tragically and deliberately razed by a hammer of hate. On the eve of the tragic event, Muslims across the nation are always under the grip of tensions about a possible terror track by India’s government or private agencies poised to coerce the Muslims to shed their legitimate demand for the Mosque which belongs to Islam ad not just Indian Muslims.

The destruction of Babri Mosque is being underplayed by the governments and their loyal media, obviously to block any move to the process of the construction activities of the mosque. Decades have passed since Babri Mosque was seized by Indian state and judiciary has also delayed the justice process for another almost two decades. India hopes that, as the years pass, it could argue that there was no Babri Mosque at Ayodhya at all, and hence, the construction of the said mosque would not arise at all. Judiciary, appointed and controlled by the State, also would shut its eyes on the fate of the grand mosque. It won't be a surprise, if some of the official “Muslims” also join the choir of the official politicians and bureaucrats in denouncing the demands for the mosque.

India has very cleverly made use of all available opportunities to create rifts in the society, particularly between Hindus and Muslims, on the one hand, and among the Muslims themselves, on the other. Group politics, vote bank politics, and even cricket have been effectively brought into play to turn the attention of the Muslims from their demands for Babri Mosque reconstruction. The Muslim political parties and other minor outfits have also been brought under the arena of State control in many wooing manners. Those who still clamor for the rebuilding of Babri Mosque are ill-treated and put into jails as “potential or suspected terrorists.” With the US playing its terror card in the Islamic world, India would also have more opportunities to attack the Muslims and refuse to rebuild the Mosque.

Cash and share of power can create wonders, as the Muslim League (IUML) has understood it while sharing power at the Centre now. Muslim League is the only national party for Muslims that has pretensions of protecting and fighting for the cause of Muslim interests and earlier, it used organize demonstrations for Babri Mosque. It has been co-opted in the Central government when Congress-led UPA regime assumed office, defeating the BJP led anti-Muslim parties. Not only that, but also the Muslim League MP has been accommodated in the foreign ministry. And that party, which used to organize occasionally protests for the Babri Mosque, has been thus totally silenced. In fact, there have not even been feeble protests in the country for the restoration of the mosque. The League leaders think that fighting for the cause of Muslims and Islam alone is a gracious plenty, and that they should not spoil this gracious and rare opportunity by unnecessarily rubbing shoulders with the Hindutva and “secular” forces in New Delhi. But they continue to use Islamic symbols in the party structure, including a flag.

A faulty and corrupt leadership has harmed the cause of Muslims in a great way. Also, the Muslim leadership is controlled by the ruling parties both at the center and states. The Congress and other major parties oblige the Muslim leaders by meeting their personal demands. As a result, the Muslims are betrayed by the very leaders who claim to be protecting their interests. Not less corrupt and tricky than other political parties in India, Muslim League and Hyderabad based Muslim Majlis party (MIM) pretend to be the defenders of Indian Muslims. The party, however, quietly takes dictates from the Congress party responsible for the destruction of Babri Mosque.

If the position of Indian Muslims is bad, the situation in Kashmir, occupied by India after its independence, is still far worse, indeed! New Delhi still perceives and views Kashmiris as troublesome, bad guys to be destroyed gradually. The overall scenario in the country explains why the Muslims in Kashmir are subjected to insults and harassment by those very personnel who are duty bound to protect them, apart from regular genocide and loss of properties inflicted upon them. Gulam Nabi Azad, the chief-minister of JK and the only Muslim chief-minister in "secular" India, like all other chief-ministers in the country, pretends ignorance of what has been happening under his very nose.

HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS

In the name of terrorism and suspicion, anybody could be put behind bars in the West and in countries like India today. Muslims and others retained in jails without trial are too large and common to need illustrations. Usual contempt of law by Indian State could be seen by the way the Muslims are treated in the country after the destruction of the mosque at Ayodhya. Muslims arrested before December 6 every year are tortured in jails across the country. They are neither tried nor released because, according to the government, arrested persons are "terrorists" deserving no speedy trials but only prolonged punishment in jails. With no explanations, governments both at the Centre and in states do not produce the so-called suspected terrorists before the courts of law so that the judiciary may deliver judgments.

Compulsorily arrests are made of Muslims on the eve of December 6. In Tamil Nadu alone, for instance, over 350 Muslims were reportedly arrested between November 22 and December 6, 1998, as “suspected terrorists.” Their fate was sealed in Coimbatore and other central jails in the state without any trial until last month when some of them were tried. One detainee, Abdul Nasser Madani, a popular political leader in Kerala State, had lost his leg in a bomb blast in Kerala when anti-Islamic forces were operating in the country and shielded by the State. Madani was later arrested when he was implicated in a bomb blast case. He was in Coimbatore jail for over ten long years before the governments decided to release him this year. No proper compensation is granted to him and others for being tortured in jails for over a decade. Indian terror PM Man Mohan Singh has not yet revealed a release date for other Muslim detainees in the country. Recently, Madani has been taken to Bangalore Jail by the BJP government in Karnataka- obviously under instructions form New Delhi and in connivance with Kerala and Tamil Nadu governments. A regime is free to pickup any one, Muslims, on fake charges.

Destruction of Babri Mosque is an extension of Indian policy towards Muslims. According to the Sachar Committee report, the most distressing fact about the state of Muslims in India is revealed in the educational and job sectors where Muslims have a poor share compared to their percentage of the population. Muslims have a disproportionately high representation when it comes to being in prison. In many states, including Maharashtra, Gujarat, and Kerala, the Muslim detainees are twice or thrice as much as their share of the population. No educated and well-placed Hindu friend thinks this as a shameful fact in a “democracy.”

Yet, no one can state exactly how many Muslims have been killed in jails of "democratic" India and elsewhere. Emboldened by the on-going terror wars waged by the USA in the Arab world on the Muslims, India does not care for legality of the issue of state sponsored crime on the strength of the US support for killing or torturing the Muslims anywhere in the world. The Muslim League, a coalition partner in the present Central government, has not bothered about securing speedy justice to the Muslim “terrorist” detainees either. It is contented with the pleasures of power-sharing with the Congress Party.

Neither the human rights activists nor other such organizations have taken up the matter seriously enough to halt the inhumane treatment meted out to the Muslims. Hypocrisy knows no shame or limits and has percolated through every section of the society and effectively controls it. The prime minister and the state chief ministers, if committed to welfare of all citizens of the country, should come out with detailed reports about Muslims without trials held in Indian lock-ups as well as the general position of the Muslim detainees in the country in general.

USA makes loud noise if a Russian is arrested by Moscow regime, but its CIA pretends it has no information about Muslim deaths or arrests or torture in India and Kashmir. has The mysterious death of a former Russian intelligence officer Alexander Litvinenko abroad and the killing of a Russian journalist Politkovkaya in Russia have caught the attention of the Western media mainly because the victims were not Muslims and had not been pro-Putin government, but also pro-West persons. Muslims are also killed and tortured by the US led forces worldwide, but the global media refuse to highlight the facts as they have done in Russia's case, for Russia is criticized for its lack of democratic traditions. Human rights record of India is known to be very low, and the media efficiently hide the facts of torture if the victims are Muslims.

BABRI MOSQUE AND RAM

Since its independence, India has longed for disgracing Muslims and, therefore, supported furious anti-Islamic researchers with anti-Islamic bent who want to somehow prove the existence of Ram and his domicile. Countrywide distortions went on as a serious business. There have been attempts by them also to somehow prove that the world monument Taj Mahal, commissioned by Moguls as part of establishing Islamic cultural edifices in the country, was constructed by Hindus. And, recently, as part of US terror agenda, Indian higher learning institutions in the country have spent billions of dollars on books and other trash on the so-called theme “ terrorism.” Insanity has not proper description of its own, indeed. With the destruction of Grand Babri Mosque, these researchers have dipped into the ashtray to furnish “evidence” about Ram having lived in Uttar Pradesh. Anyone who questions the existence of Ram is targeted for concerted attacks. Not only do Indian missions abroad harp on anti-Islamic and Hindutva moorings, but also they misuse the media for their personal advantages of making wealth. Claiming to be a secular nation, India should have propagated a multi-religious, multi-cultural, multi-language state, but unfortunately, it is bothered only about its narrow interests every where.

The dichotomy of attributing variables of God and the divinity conferred on God dos not allow anybody to prove or disprove the existence of God in a practical way. The research seems to attach significant importance to the Ram Sethu, suggesting that it should be looked into deeper for evidence of Ram. But the Archaeological Survey of India has concluded that it is nothing but a natural formation. The ASI had not done any digging around the Ram Sethu. In fact, they do not have any knowledge on this. Even their affidavit before the Supreme Court said so.

Hindus equate God with man and woman. Their God committed mistakes, crime. Hindus have fixed age and color to God. The search story goes that as per the dates charted in the Ramayana, Ram was almost 39 years old when he killed Ravana, not such a young man. He must have then set out on vanvaas at the age of 25. Isn't that too old for those times? Ram took over as king at the right age, and at 25 he set out on vanvaas, and at the age of 39 he defeated Ravana. This can be proved through scientific methods.

This report is supposed to create awareness among the majority people. Let people discuss, debate it, but truth should be hidden from the debating clubs. The NGO wants the media to side with the research outcomes as much as the government that is supposed to uphold Hinduistic tenets in all possible ways while pursuing at the same time a so-called secular format.. The fascination for truth with proving the existence of Ram and other gods cannot be truthful, either.

Religious politics has been extended to judiciary too. ASI has earlier approached the Apex court stating that Ram Sethu has nothing to do with Ram, and Ram never lived anywhere in the country. And Sethu was only man-made, and Sethu Samudram project should be allowed to be cast. Later, however, government changed its version saying it should be a national monument. Recently, in an affidavit before the Supreme Court, the Union government recently said the Ram Sethu was a natural formation, and, in passing, also questioned the existence of Lord Ram. The affidavit was retracted following widespread protests.

The majority in India is fond of creating controversies so as to deny the Muslims their legitimate due. With a view of appeasing the majority Hindu sentiment across the country, which is the life line to both Congress and BJP parties, the government of India has taken yet another bold step in defending Ram’s existence. The government-sponsored agencies have made the latest discoveries about the existence of Lord Ram. A Chennai-based NGO, funded by the government, was engaged in research on India's traditions and culture. It has produced a report which states that Lord Ram did indeed exist. The report even puts a date on his birth: January 10, 5114 BCE (Before the Christian Era). The NGO says it arrived at the conclusion by using a relatively new method --archaeoastronomy, which combines astronomical with archaeological data.

Indian politicians, supported by some anti-Islamic researchers, are bent upon using religion for political purposes. Babri Mosque was unnecessarily linked to Ram, the national hero. TV serials on Ravana and Mahabharata were misused to generate pseudo-emotions across the nation and engineer hatred against Muslims. The NGO unveiled the research findings at a presentation in Mumbai very recently. "We can say with confidence and pride that Ram existed historically," the researcher told the gathering. "The most authentic text on Rama is Valmiki's Ramayana since it was written by Valmiki as a contemporary text. We have collaborated different aspects of Rama's life as mentioned in the Ramayana with scientific methodologies." The NGO has been conducting research on traditional Indian knowledge for the past six years, talks about the authenticity of this report, the reliability of archaeoastronomy and other issues. The research shows that Ram was a mortal, but how would it go down in a culture that worships him as God? Ram was a human being and also a king. It is anybody's personal choice to attribute divinity to him. We worship our parents and teachers as God. So why not Ram? He was a noble soul. It has relied on several others to come to a conclusion through scientific eliminations.

India has churned out Hindutva specialists who are keen to somehow create make believe stories to defend what the extremist Hindutva Jihads do. India is characterized by night sky observations and the criminals who demolished the Mosque try to escape punishment by using that. .Feeding the observations of the planetary configurations into the planetarium software, the dates are arranged along with the events, it supposedly and scientifically assign dates to events mentioned in Indian legends and historical texts and validate them.

The researchers used Archaeoastronomy, a technique of charting the past or the future sky using a scientific tool to arrive at planetary positions, given a date in the past or the future and vice verse --given a set of planetary configurations, arrive at the date either in the past or in the future. Such tools are collectively called planetarium software. This approach is parallel to archeology where physical remains are analyzed to arrive at historic dates and hence. In deciphering the Ramayana using archaeoastronomy, researchers relied upon several reports and mainly the configurations available in the Ramayana. The dates mentioned in the earlier texts including the Ramayana were tallied, entered into the software as mentioned above, and then a conclusion was drawn. Thus, they try to justify ghastly destruction of a historic monument- Babri Mosque.

The Hindutva argument is based on the revengeful, malicious act of vandalism.

The findings must be the toast of Hindu outfits! With the state and central governments defending Ram and, conversely, justifying the destruction of Grand Babri Mosque, the anti-Muslim, Hindutva outfits operating indoors and abroad would have an additional tooth to vehemently unleash anti-Islamic rhetoric and assault on Muslims and Islamic institutions in India. The only hope for Indian Muslims seems to be protecting, at any cost, each and every Muslim living in the country. The fact, however, remains that human beings cannot prove the existence of God, no matter howsoever they attempt, but, as the demolition of Babri Mosque show, they might be able only to disprove the existence by destroying mosques. No research on God could be infallible either as an academic or religious exercise.

The fantastic dates attributed to pre-history make a mockery of the existence of God per se, and they only essentially state that only human beings existed. But human beings are not God/s, the creator/s or of the universe. Falsehood cannot be justified as being the truth.

India for years have let hollow sentimentalism of Hindus overtake rationality and good humane thinking and expect Muslims to fear them and give up Babri Mosque claims. It is strange that the fanatic Hindus is worried about saving Ram’s dignity first by destroying a Historic Mosque and then by constructing a structure for him at the site where a Mosque stood.

State Interference:

MEDIA’S NEGATIVE ROLE

The fanatic Indian media has also taken a fascination to Ram. Ram, according to the media, is an international hero, and everyone ought to be as proud of him as are Indians. The more one strives to prove the existence of God, the more confused he or she would become, and, more important, more certain they would end up disproving God.

Today the power of media is such they can ignite another world war by terrorizing the world by feeding false reports and fake encounters that are necessary for the advancement of illegal interests of extra-corporate nations. By projecting the GST wars in Islamic world by the NATO terror syndicates as a genuine effort to stop terrorism, they only escort the imperialist powers in their resource hunt by genocides. Media, managed with corporate cash, mostly illegal money, promote state terrorism and anti-Islamism. India media play destructive role in nation building.

India is hailed as a country where democracy flourishes on large scale. December 6 is the date that Indian history will remember forever as the day that democracy was finally assassinated in India with the destruction of Babri Mosque and subsequent torture of the Muslims all over the country. Upon the destruction of the mosque, the then-ruling Congress pledged to reconstruct the mosque at the very site where it existed, but, to this date, the construction has not even started. In order to suppress the Muslims who demand the reconstruction of the mosque, the Indian state has only terrorized them through various nefarious actions harmful to and undermining the Muslims.

Media, the fourth estate charged with the task of defending the genuine interests of minorities as well, plays in India enough mischief in the breakdown in the society and country. They consider the Muslims are no-entity and therefore to be ignored and subjugated. No one needs a special course to understand the fact that US-led terror strategy has been very aptly utilized by India to target the Muslims in and outside the country. And Media are never tired of branding the Muslims as suspected terrorists and useless, burdensome, problematic people. Media have converted the Hindu masses into behaving like a shield to cultivate ill-feelings towards fellow Muslims.

The attitude that ‘India is a Hindu nation and the Hindus alone decide what to do with Indian judiciary and Muslims’ cannot be a good approach at all. Since the media play havoc in the perceptive domains of majority of Indians, a few lines would help these self proclaimed patriots to understand the factual position. Muslims lead a pathetic and strained life as offered to them by the governments of India and states. The state as well as the media ignores the role of the Muslims in India's independence, wherein many of them lost lives for the country's sake. Muslims also made multiple, positive contributions to the country's development. Issues like Pakistan’s politics and terrorism are cleverly brought in to play a destructive role in the lives of Muslims. While focusing on Muslims in India, the media and politicians, encouraged by the bureaucrats, make it appear that Muslims are a burden and that resources are wasted on them. Wonderfully, even by keeping a Muslim as President, India keeps doing what the USA does to Muslims all over the world. Insulting and bashing the Muslims is a routine event in the country, including New Delhi.

Media hide the fact that every year many Muslims are rounded up on the eve of December 6 anniversary, and not many return home quite safe. To date no one knows how many Muslims are in jails or for what crimes! Hatred is generated even from among wealthy Indians, particularly those settled down comfortably abroad, mainly in the West. They are both proud of and obsessed with the so-called Indian democratic values. They appear happy to see that the Muslims in India are painted in dirty colors and portrayed as bad guys deserving death. They are perhaps unaware of the fact that this country is contempt with legal aspects of the retaining detainees without trails. Of those who have been detained and tortured in Indian jails for over a decade, only a few are released, and some others are tried and punished.

Media cannot afford to conveniently forget the fact that the criminal razing of Babri Mosque is a glaring example of how the Muslims and Islamic institutions are treated in India. With advent of US sponsored war on the so-called terrorism, India has been ably using the terrorism plank to deny what is legitimately due to Muslims. Like the USA and the West, India too describes and views the Muslims as suspected terrorists. All Muslims thus are potential terrorists, if not real or suspected ones.

All these years since independence, the print media, English as well as vernaculars, have faithfully portrayed Muslims as evil, unwanted elements that need to be eliminated at all costs, secretly, or, if that is not possible, openly. The majority of Hindus are projected as the "tolerant ones" and "sufferers" and badly hit people by the "onslaught" of the Muslims, whereas the truth suggests the opposite. Lately, however, Indian media, under the prevailing circumstances, seem to have been caught between the 'duty' to go all out for shielding the majority and advancing the so-called national interest and the need to project India as the largest democracy, at the same time. The media that are used to paint the Muslim in India in dirty colors find it extremely difficult now to change their anti-Muslim format.

Media successfully fueled the anti-Muslim tragedy and promoted the anti-Islamic propaganda. The ugly depictions of Muslims, where the Muslims are shown as villains and ugly guys, have caused tensions in the society that led to the slow annihilation of the Muslims. The media that are so used to painting the Muslim, now would find it extremely difficult to change their anti-Muslim format for fear of angry reaction from the special sections that fomented friction in the society, apart from the worry about a possible slash in daily circulation affecting the profits of the media magnets controlling politics in the country.

More Indian Muslims are employed outside India than in the country, as India refuses to ensure their involvement in jobs and education. Neither the media nor the governments, both the central and the states, seem to be ashamed of the fact that Muslims have to look outside India for a livelihood. While criticizing the Muslims for that which they may or may not be responsible, the media refuse to give due credit. Indian Muslims, working both in India and in the Middle East, have contributed immensely to the upsurge of Indian economy during the past 20 years with their regular bank remittances. But for the Gulf countries, the plight of Muslims in "democratic" India would have been indescribable in a normal language. It is too difficult now, or at a later stage, to remold the mind of the people by giving real facts, even if the media want to set the record straight.

The crux of the issue is how to reset the mind-set of the readers who were made to believe as facts the fiction presented to them, even if the media wanted to undertake that. Indian newspaper readers and media viewers were earlier told that Muslims are a bad lot, terrorists, and suspects and that they shouldn't be entertained in societies at all. Muslims, deprived of any dependable leadership and resources to face the challenge from the media, are used as mere vote bank. The majority might question the veracity and reliability of news presented as new facts about Muslims. To accept the Muslims as fellow travelers, after targeting them thus far for no fault of their own, would be difficult. Readers would be required to treat the Muslims as humans, which would indeed be a difficult proposition. That would mean that democracy is farce.

The main worry of the media magnets and their political bosses seems to be economic advancement of Muslims, which they don’t wish for them. By re-projecting Muslims as humans now, the media indirectly try to make room for advancement of Muslims in the society. Because the governments, by taking cue from the media suggestions, would be compelled to pass necessary laws to uplift the Muslims as well. But the readers are well equipped to receive the supposedly change in mind of the journalistic justice. This is the real dilemma that media, like the bureaucracy and politicians, face today. This explains the reluctance on the part of the media to present facts as facts and turn away from the fictional, degrading portrayal of Muslims.

Media must give up once for all their petrified anti-Muslim mindset and help the nation and society rebuild the nation.

SOME OBSERVATIONS

Every year December 6 has found governments across India in yet another crackdown of terrorizing the helpless Muslims, surrounded by their Hindus neighbors.

Using cricket or some other show as a useful tool of diversion on the anniversary of the destruction of Babri Mosque is not a bad strategic idea, but delaying the construction of Babri Mosque is not in the best interests of India and its helpless Muslims. India has conveniently capitalized the fact that the Arabs, supporting the Indian government for trade gains, don’t seem to appreciate the problems of Indian Muslims or Hindu fanatic operations and, therefore, don’t insist on the rebuilding Babri Mosque.

India has been successful in evading the most important responsibilities. One responsibility is granting independence to Kashmir that demanded independence since the time it was tactfully annexed by India. Another is the reconstruction of Babri Mosque as promised by the government of India India should show resolve in accomplishing these goals and establish cordial relations with the Muslims in the country as well as Kashmiris by respecting their loss sentiments. It is already too late to shed hatred politics and concentrate on mutual relationships.

Babri Mosque was pulled down by Indian majority terrorists with state support because they do not want the Mosque to exist so as to purse their illegal case against Babri Mosque. They were told that so long as the mosque existed, there is no case for Hindu fanatics and no political profits for the right wing extremist Hindu parties. So, there had been tremendous mobilization of Hindus from across the nation to converge in Ayodhya like they say the Ramayana TV serial on TV and destroy the mosque. They were assured of state support. Fearing expose of and punishment for their biased anti-Islamic actions, Indian strategists would like to use the successful terrorism ploy without hesitation. Of course, enough of the so-called terrorism, as this plan has harmed the Muslims more than any other section in the society in terms of living and advancement.

Of course, it is not to deny the fact that Indian Muslims are not conscientious enough to understand the undercurrents going on behind the political theater. Since they also, like their Hindu brethren do to them, cheat, insult and would not even hesitate to kill each other, if the network asks them to do. Mischief and distrust characterize the intra-relationship among the Muslims not only in Muslim dominated areas, but even in localities where there are hardly any Muslims living. Torture, physical as well as mental, inflicted by the state agencies upon the Muslims has driven them away from seeking any justice from the government agencies and seeking any share in the national development or resources. One does not know if that would be a victory for the State and the loyal media. Unhealthy attitude of the Muslims themselves has to be blamed for what the government is doing to them.

Ramayana is one of the best epics with well-nit magic plots and moral tales, but it is not the truth or reality. It remains a pure fiction and human imagination of the distance past. . It does not make any sense, however, for the title of hero to be given to the righteous Ram who first abandoned his wife Sita and retrieved her after a long haul and suffering, only to be lost forever. But demolishing a historic Mosque on false assumptions and fabricated evidence of a Hindu structure is the height of nonsense and a majority vandalism protected by state.

Refusal to admit farce might make the researchers discover many more such gods. Unable to comprehend God without proper form, people visualized God in their own creative manner depending on the stage of development of society and human mind. A formless, genderless, colorless, speechless, but omnipotent God was the final stage in the development of understanding and realization of God in modern times. Illegal and immoral destruction of Babri Mosque has reactivated the theme of Ram in India. Whether or not Ram existed at any point of time, lived like any other human being, or was also a prophet, or the Ramayana was only the fruits of the best possible human imagination of the distant past, the researchers can continue to research if they have the energy for that, but search for facts abut existence of gods is vaguer than the very search for God. However, the Babri Mosque was a reality, and it existed before the eyes of millions of human beings before it was pulled down in a terrorist method. Babri Mosque must be rebuilt. India should not confuse Babri Mosque commitment with its anti-Pakistan policy. The Central and state governments ought to exercise their obligation and responsibilities before the Muslim population in the country.

Of course, the Indian majority population, as well as those well-settled abroad with the help of Indian government agencies, does have a right to appreciate reality correctly, view their Muslim brethren correctly, and not to insult, thrash or kill them just for sadistic pleasures or for no reasons. Media have to play a constructive role in India already polluted by dirty religious and anti-Muslim politics. Will the Indian State and media magnets cooperate at least now to create a genuinely conducive media atmosphere promoting mutual respect across all sections of the people in India and thereby serve the national interest better? Or, is nurturing that kind of an idea of real secularism still a utopia? A particular section of population cannot be considered as anti-national, ill-treated, and denied, on some pretexts, their due share in national development of the so-called largest democracy. It would be nothing but a national shame!

Tue, Babri Mosque is not the only issue the Muslims have now, but it remains the most important one because their existence as Muslims in India is in question. Of course, there could be as many problems for Muslims as the country desires. After the construction of the Babri Mosque, the extremist elements among Hindus might go for some new trick but the judiciary must then step in.

Although justice delayed is justice denied, Muslims could forget that prophesy in this case, once the Babri Mosque back its original site at Ayodhya. A better future for the Muslims would be possible only if the Indian regime and media change their falsified historic mind-set in favor of supporting and uplifting the Muslims. It is time, therefore, now, after six decades of Indian independence, for the governments, both the central and the regional, to formulate afresh the media rules of portrayal of Indian reality without bias against Muslim or Islam. This would be in keeping with the growing urgency for a new face of journalism which should be against anti-Muslim format but reflect an all-people positive theme. They should separate criticism and terrorism from aspirations of innocent Muslims who are not agents or vote bank mobilizers.

Muslims still believe in the ultimate Justice. One hopes Indian Apex Courts strikes down the fanatic judgment of Allahabad Court and ask Indian government to keep its pledge to the nation and world to rebuild the Babri Mosque at the site where it stood as an Islamic prayer hall and a witness to the Hindu manipulative politics since 1947. Only Muslims should pray in mosques, including Babri Mosque.
