The Ram janmabhoomi temple at Ayodhya was demolished at some stage in the reign of Auranagzeb and not through Babur’s commander Mir Baqi, says former IPS officer Kishore Kunal in his ebook ‘Ayodhya Revisited’.
In an interview to IANS, Kunal — who become an Officer on special obligation within the Union domestic ministry inside the Nineteen Nineties — discovered that the false impression about Babur’s position become because of Francis Buchanan who surveyed Ayodhya in 1813-1814 and changed into misled via an inscription on the mosque which referred to one Baqi.
“Babur had no function inside the demolition of any temple at Ayodhya or within the construction of the mosque there. He has been maligned for the last 200 years for an act with which he become no longer associated. it’s miles an injustice to this sort of liberal emperor,” Kunal said.
in keeping with Kunal, the temple became demolished with the aid of Awadh Governor Fedai Khan in 1660 all through the reign of Aurangzeb. The temple became not demolished in 1528 as is normally claimed nowadays, he said.

The so-known as Babri Masjid had 3 domes that resembled other mosques constructed all through Aurangzeb’s time, Kunal harassed.
“Francis Buchanan surveyed Ayodhya in 1813-1814 and became misled by an inscription at the mosque which turned into no longer well tested by using him. human beings knew that Aurangzeb had destroyed the Ram temple, however Buchanan turned into beguiled with the aid of the fictitious inscription to agree with that it became built by using Babur,” Kunal delivered.
The tons-mentioned inscription in the mosque become actually affixed centuries after the meant production in 1528, stated Kunal.
consistent with Kunal, Mir Baqi who’s referred within the inscription was exclusive from Baqi of “Baburnama”. In reality, Babur in no way visited Ayodhya, he said.
The temples in Ayodhya were not affected at some stage in the Mughal length until Aurangzeb ascended to electricity, Kunal said, including that the situation modified underneath Aurangzeb.
After the record on Ayodhya changed into posted in Martin’s book a “history Topography Antiquities of japanese India” in 1838, students started attributing production of the mosque to Babur.
apparently, no reference of ‘Babri Masjid’ may be observed in any textual content for greater than 240 years after its supposed creation in 1528. It became cited for the first time within the travelogue of Jesuit priest Tieffenthelar in 1768, Kunal said.
“i have additionally supplied money owed of foreign travelers like Thomas Herbert posted in 1634 and Joannes De Leat published in 1631 on Ayodhya. each had defined about a temple of Rama there and those touring the vicinity,” Kunal stated.
“i’ve produced a clinching proof which proved that there has been a temple at the birthplace of Lord Rama and there has been an idol interior it as it’s far described in the ‘Ayodhya Mahatmya’ of the Rudra Yamala,” Kunal said.
in step with Kunal, the Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) didn’t produce any record beyond the “Ayodhya Mahatmya” of Skanda Purana. “however i’ve cited four texts which corroborate the reality that Ayodhya became Lord Rama’s birthplace,” Kunal asserted.
He similarly stated VHP’s reliance on a fictitious e book “Sahifar-i-Chihal-Nasaih Bahadur Shahi” is absolutely misplaced.
