The demolition of Babri Masjid took place on this day in 1992 by lakh of Kar Sevaks led by Lalkrishna Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi among others. The demolition caused massive communal riots across the country leading to thousands of deaths from both Hindu and Muslim community.
Following the demolition, two FIRs were filed, one against the Kar sevaks for demolishing the mosque and the second against the Lalkrishna Advani and his likes for their communal speeches that led to the demolition.
On November 9, 2019, a special bench of the Supreme Court pronounced ‘unanimously’ that the disputed land will be given to the Hindus and a separate 5 acres land would be given to the Muslim litigants for the construction of Mosque.
On September 30, 2020, a special CBI court acquitted all 32 accused including Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi, Uma Bharti and recently died and former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Kalyan Singh.
The violence could not just be contained in India itself, the heat of the demolition crossed the border and reached to Pakistan where approximately 30 Hindu temples were attacked and government offices were closed in the protest against the demolition.
