AYODHYA – UNCONQUERABLE CITY OF GODS (VERDICT)
By Nischal S. Kukade
India is a country of a substantial population of Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains & adherents of folk religion. Hinduism is the third most widespread religion in the world after Islam & Christianity and it is thought to be the oldest religion in the world, with roots tracing back to at least 5,000 years ago. Islam is the second largest religion in India though it came to India in early 7th century with the advent of Arab traders in Malabar coast, which spread in India mostly under Delhi Sultanate (1206-1526) and the Mughal Empire (1526-1856) greatly aided by the mystic superstition. The very recent landmark, historic and socio-religious debate in India was Ayodhya verdict, which was a dispute between two religious communities, both of whom claim ownership over a piece of land, demarking 1,5000 square yards in the town of Ayodhya. The unanimous judgment by a 5-judge constitution bench brought down the curtain on a dispute that began in 1885.
