WHY AYODHYA CASE IS SIGNIFICANT?

Ayodhya is a disputed land between two largest communities of Bharat. Most of the Hindus believe that Mughals destroyed the then existing Ram Mandir and built a Mosque at that site. From then Ayodhya has witnessed communal tensions with both sides claiming the disputed site. In 1853 the communal clashes took place at the disputed site.

  • In 1859 the then British government divided the land between Hindus and Muslims which remained untouched for Nine long decades.
  • In 1949 Idols of Ram were placed inside the Mosque as a result of which both the parties filed civil suit against each other. The Civil suits were filed by many parties allegedly raising their objection over placing Idols inside Mosque.

Ram Janmabhoomi issue intensified during 1980’s when all the Hindu Organisations stood firm to construct a Grand Ram Mandir at the disputed site. In 1986 Faizabad District Court ordered to open the gates of disputed site to allow Hindus to Worship at the site.
