Reclamation of Hindu Temples is a necessary historical course correction

Dec 6, 2018

When the Christians of Spain were defeated by the Moors, a large number of churches were converted to mosques. Similarly, when the Moors were expelled by the Christians in the 15th century, masjids were reconverted into chapels, churches and cathedrals. The position in eastern Europe was similar. When the Russians conquered Poland in 1797, they converted the central cathedral of Warsaw into an Orthodox church. However, when the Poles became independent in 1918, one way they announced their freedom was to reconvert the church to a Catholic cathedral. There is an Anti-Hindu reason behind why there are mosques in Kashi, Krishna Janmabhoomi – Mathura & Ram Janmabhoomi – Ayodhya, why temples were burned & broken by Islamic invaders and why the idols were smashed into pieces and laid on those pavements leading to the mosques.

There is surely something for the Hindus to learn from the Jews of Israel, for them the Temple of Jerusalem is what Ram Janmabhoomi is for the Hindus. The Temple Mount, referred to in Hebrew as Har Habayit, is traditionally said to be where Abraham exhibited his commitment to God by taking his Son Isaac to be sacrificed. The mount is likewise the site of both old Jewish sanctuaries. The first constructed by King Solomon, was crushed by the Babylonians in 586 BCE. The second was built in the 6th century BCE and stood for almost 600 years before it was demolished by the Roman kings and during the Islamic conquest of Jerusalem, the sacred place was changed over into a mosque ‘Dome of the Rock’ and today it is considered as one of the holiest spots for the Muslims, fundamentally the same as how Ayodhya’s Ram Mandir was changed over into the Babri Masjid, Mathura’s Krishna Mandir was changed over into Shahi-Idgah Mosque and Kashi Vishwanath Temple was changed over into Gyanvapi Mosque. The Jews who were forced to flee from their own nation have returned and have succeeded in claiming a sovereignty in their homeland while reclaiming temple mount is likewise under process, and eventually they are exceptionally well positioning themselves to succeed.

Babri mosque was constructed in 1528 at the same sacred place where Bhagwan Ram was born. Mir Baqi, one of Mughal ruler Babur’s commanders decimated the existing temple, erected a building and called it the ‘Babri Masjid’. When the head of the Nirmohi Akhara, in 1885 filed a petition seeking permission to offer prayers to Ram Lalla at the said place, the permission was denied. However, in 1886, district court ruled stating, “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.” In 1950, the Idols of Bhagwan Ram appeared inside the illegal building following which in 1992, Ram devotees managed to demolish the structure while the intent of restoring the Mandir is yet to be realised. Besides the judicial process, it is the prime duty of every Indian to reclaim the heritage and build a Grand Ram Mandir at the very same place, for the Muslims it’s more of a moral responsibility to handover the land and not to litigate further, so as the glory of the “Maryada Purushottam – Bhagwan Ram” during whose rule the ultimate Dharma, Ramrajya, was upheld, is passed on to the succeeding generations.
