Out of court solution only way to avoid Syria-like situation. Padmaja Joshi explains what Sri Sri really said. In a statement that will add further fuel to the contentious Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi controversy, the Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar said India will turn into Syria if the Ram temple issue is not resolved soon. In an exclusive interview with India Today, Ravi Shankar, who has been holding parleys with the various parties involved in the Ram Mandir issue for a long time, said, "If Ram Mandir issue is not solved, we will have a Syria in India." The 61-year-old spiritual leader said Islam does not allow worship at a disputed site. "We cannot make Lord Rama to be born in another place," he said. Ravi Shankar also rubbished suggestions that a public utility like a hospital should be built at the disputed site, where a Mughal-era mosque was demolished by a Hindu mob on December 6, 1992. The Ayodhya dispute is centred on the same plot of land, which Hindus claim is the birthplace of Lord Rama. About DailyO: Welcome to DailyO YouTube Channel.

But for almost a decade before the mosque was demolished, Ayodhya had become a site of intense debate regarding what should be considered the truest history of the place. The radical Hindu Right led by the VHP, BJP, RSS and Shiv Sena laid out two firm claims to the site of Ayodhya; first that it was the sacred spot of the birth of Lord Ram and second that a temple dedicated to Ram had been demolished in order to build the Babri Masjid in the sixteenth century under the commands of Mughal Emperor Babur. Ayodhya s history from the point of view of the Hindu fundamentalists became the basis for calling for the demolition of the mosque and construction of a temple dedicated to Ram in its place. The Right wing s interpretation of Ayodhya s history was soon contradicted by Left wing historians, who were of the opinion that the fundamentalist understanding of the history of Ayodhya was incorrect, politically motivated and dangerous for the future of the country s secularism.From the mid 1980s on, there emerged a trend of promoting a new history of Ayodhya. This new way of history writing, made its appearance in places in and around Lucknow, Allahabad and other areas producing Hindi literature. As noted by historian Gyanendra Pandey, the right wing Hindu movement had done all it can to promote an alternative account of the history of Ayodhya and its association with Ram. Further, both historians Vinay Lal and Pandey noted that this new history of Ayodhya as seen by the radical right was put across in a way that made it appear as the real and incontrovertible truth about the region.
The destruction of the Babri Masjid on December 6, 1992 was not merely an instance of state-sponsored lawlessness. Neither was it a momentary lapse in the enforcement of rule of law. While it is seen by many as just an episode or a trigger that unleashed forces of Hindu religious nationalism, it was, in fact, the culmination of a process that began in the 19th century. European modernity, orientalism, ideas of reform, restatements of society and religion were the ingredients that went into the making of an Indian nationalism in that century. It was just that: one idea of India rather than many ideas of India.Out of a dazzling constellation of sects, doctrines, philosophical arguments, rites, rituals, practices, social realities, identities and differences, a unique entity called Hinduism was confected. Its central purpose was to be compatible and commensurate with the idea of sovereignty and the state.
