At 80, Syed Ikhlaq Latifi’s face is lined and leathery, with a stark white beard. But he’s still able to scramble up three flights of stairs to his roof to describe what he watched from there, in horror, nearly 30 years ago.

On Dec. 6, 1992, a mob broke through barricades around the Babri Masjid, a 16th century mosque in Latifi’s hometown of Ayodhya in northern India. He points to where the mosque’s three massive stone domes used to be. It’s now an open, dusty lot, as wide as a football field, lined with barbed wire.

The mosque was built when India was ruled by the Mughals — Muslim emperors. They built thousands of mosques, forts and other landmarks all over northern India, including the country’s most famous: the Taj Mahal, which houses the tomb of the emperor Shah Jahan’s favorite wife.

On that terrible day in 1992, Latifi couldn’t recognize the men in the mob. They were mostly strangers from out of town, he says.

“They climbed on top of the domes and tombs. They were carrying hammers and these three-pronged spears from Hindu scripture. They started hacking at the mosque,” Latifi recalls. “By night, it was destroyed, and they set fire to nearby houses.”

Latifi watched as flames lit up the night sky. Then he and his family fled for their lives.

In riots that followed, thousands of people, mostly Muslims, were killed across India. When Latifi returned to his neighborhood about six weeks after he fled, he found his home — along with an adjacent small mosque and Islamic community center — vandalized and burned. He managed to salvage the small mosque’s damaged minarets from the rubble and rebuild.

To watch the Babri mosque’s destruction, Latifi says, was shocking. But he also says he wasn’t surprised.

  1. Scars run deep, so why keep picking at old wounds, then ? I understand it is good to know the wrongs of history, but, when you see and read these old news stories every time one turns on the computer or buys a newspaper, you push the unstable people over the edge, and aggravate others. This is why Jesus, God’s Son, hammered the point about forgiving and forgetting and have understanding. Forgiveness is a highly advanced sociological concept, and, Jesus taught His apostles and the world this for a reason, it brings about peace…….Understanding means knowledge of history, human psychology, sociology, and human weaknesses,etc. We are to use this to be a defendant for those that have done wrong, even if it that wrong was done to us. It clears the air, somehow. Quit digging-up the hatchets, this is why the evil goes around and around, all over the world. Journalist, editors, media owners, politicians, academics better start changing their tune, you have caused much damage, you are inciting violence and keeping old grudges alive.

    Archaeo-legal evidence

    In matters of archaeo-legal evidence of history,the cumulative patterns of archaeological evidence over 1000s of years are to be used – on matters of theological coordinates.

    For example,there is no Rama or Vishnu in the Rig Veda – which is a North Indian script (with anti-south indian slant – which makes the absence all the more stark)- and this disaster stretches right upto the opus and treasure troves of Ashoka.

    Even assuming that Rama was a dark skinned limpet (as per the Ramayana) and a Dasyus – condemned into oblivion by the Rig veda – and Ashoka being of Saka
    origin,put Rama into the prolapsed uterus dustbin – there has to be a trail of evidence pointing to the Rama birth place.

    Nil ASI Pattern of evidence

    There is no authenticated or carbon dated evidence on a papyrus,tablets,leaves,goat skin, cow skin, pottery,idol,wall carving,painting which even obliquely refers to any Rama birth site – except the gay love rantings of Tulsidas – which even Tulsidas admits, are not based on any revelations by Rama or Vishnu or Vrinda or Kaushalya

    It is based on the beliefs and perceptions of Hindoos who are ignoramuses,imbeciles and heathens.

    I challenge the ASI to show a Phallic worship object dated to the 5 century BC – as there is none.All the tales of Shiva are from Africa and West Asia –
    wherein phallic symbols and kamasutra engravings are carbon dated to 2500 BC.

    ASI Strategy and Hindoo seers

    Then comes in the ASI – which does controlled excavations.If Rama was an icon even in North or Central India – I can bet that the ASI has not uncovered a
    single Rama Temple dated to the 1st and 5th century AD.

    Madhavcharya called Ade Shankara a son of a prostitute and a liar and cheat and a quasi Buddhist.There is not 1 line in the magnum opus of Ade Shankara or
    Madhavacharya on any Rama birth place or a grandiose temple of learning at his birthplace.

    The truth is that if ASI digs in December 2020,in Ayodhya, it will find several sites which will have the name of Rama on the walls and murals – but it purposely maintained the status quo – to bias the judiciary.

    Even from the 5th to the 15 century, I can bet that that the ASI does not have a single site or artefact or cuneiform tablet or scripture or treatise –
    which even remotely hints of a TEMPLE EVER AT A RAMA BIRTH SITE – forget the site of the birth of the impotent gay pansy Rama

    Granth and Mahabharata

    Even the Mahabaharata does not have 1 word on a grand TEMPLE ON THE SITE OF RAMA’S BIRTH PLACE – EVER.Not 1 word.

    Sikhs believe that Nanak of the Bedi clan,was lineaged from Lav and Kush.There is not 1 line in the Granth on a grand temple on the site of Rama’s birth

    It proves the following :

    The Brahmin Formula

    The Brahmins forged and burnt the Granth Sahib,forged the Bachetar Natak introduced porn in the Granth Sahib,introduced Kali and Durga worship in the
    Sikh scriptures ,killed- beheaded and poisoned the so called Sikh Prophets and also placed idols of Krishna and others in the Golden Temple.


    As an aside,why did the Hindoos not record in history the existence of a grand Temple for Rama,per se,let alone his birth place.

    Simple !

    Rama’s mother had sex with a Horse and also had sex with 11 Brahmins as her husband was an impotent pansy
    Kaushalya is quoted in the Ramayana, as saying that her husband and Rama ONLY GAVE HER SORROW AND NO SATISFACTION AND RESPECT (no sexual satisfaction for Kaushalya after the advent of Kaikeyi – and this is also stated in the Ramayana)

    The above explains why Brahmins LOVE Rama.These people inserted verses and forgeries in the Gita and Mahabharata and the Vedas.

    • not sure whether this should not be deleted . We do not want to hurt others’ feelings.

    • by stating that Hindustan should be partitioned you are supporting those Hindus that think all Muslims are non-Indian. Not a good idea and not according to the wishes of Indian Muslims.
