Ayodhya: Restoration of Ram Temple begins

Palace of Queen Kaushlya:

In ancient times earlier than 5000 BC there was a Kingdom of Kaushal presided by King Dashrath. The capital was at Ayodhya near present day Lucknow in state of Uttar Pradesh. King Dasharath had three queens, namely, Kaushalya, Sumitra and Kaikeyi. Kaushalya was from the Kingdom of Magadha. Sumitra was from Kashi. Kaikeyi was from Kekeya Kingdom. 

To cut the story short, Ayodhya even today has palaces of these queens and King but one palace is missing. It is the palace of Queen Kaushalya who was mother of Prince Ram, an incarnation of Vishnu who is revered and worshiped around the world.

Where did the palace of Queen Kaushalya go?

Ayodhya also has a place called Kanak Palace which was gifted to Janki the wife of Rama as her nuptial gift. In this also a temple exist. But no palace of Kaushalya is in sight.

492 years ago Babar, an invader from West attacked India after he converted to become Shia in Iran with the artillery provided by Iran. He stayed back in Delhi. He had a male consort slave, a boy aged 16 years who was named Babri which means ‘belonging to Babur’. This boy died in one of the battles. The commander of Babur namely Meer Baki attacked Ayodhya and demolished the Ram Temple in Kaushalya Palace, did his loot, built a mosque like structure on demolished building, named it after a slave i.e. Babri, and left. His revenge was complete against Kaffirs.

The building was not a mosque as it did not have a place to vazu or washing before Salah or Namaz. The Ram worshippers started doing prayers outside in court yard. Many bloody wars ensued from time to time. In 1857 matter became a civil dispute over ‘Maszid-e-Janm Sthan’ as mentioned in revenue records. (Mosque at place of birth)

On 9th November Supreme Court of India decided the matter and gave the land underneath to build a temple as it had unislamic building underneath and there was continued possession and worshipping by them.

Yesterday Prime Minister laid down foundation stone of a Ram Temple at the site in Ayodhya:

To those secularists who find this objectionable, here is the picture from original copy of Constitution of India, with Lord Ram in the header:

All the best and

Jai Siya Ram.

The relief given in Ram Mandir Verdict is a routine verdict in joint properties.

Ayodhya, which literally means a place of no war, had seen the longest legal battle in human history. A battle for survival started in 1528 when an invader demolished a temple to establish a mosque. The matter went to court and remained pending there for 134 years. Finally the dispute was decided on November 9, 2019 by Supreme Court of India. The judgement runs into 1045 pages.
