31st demolition anniversary of historic Babri Mosque commemorated as ‘Black Day’ in India

On the 31st anniversary of the historic Babri Mosque’s demolition, Indian Muslims have called it a “Black Day,” with some vowing to continue their fight for legal rights in the country.

The 16th-century Babri Mosque in Ayodhya in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh was demolished by Hindu hardliners in 1992, triggering violent clashes between Hindus and Muslims which led to the death of more than 4000 innocent Muslims in Mumbai and across India.

The decades-long dispute was settled in November 2019, when the Supreme Court of India ruled that a temple could be built on the site and ordered the allotment of a separate plot of land for the construction of another mosque in place of the Babri Mosque.
