The demolition of Babri Masjid on December 6, 1992 was not a case of an unruly mob going out of control, as has been claimed all along by various Sangh Parivar activists, but the result of an elaborate plan -- "the biggest conspiracy of all times" -- by the various wings of the Sangh parivar executed with precision by trained volunteers, according to a sting operation by Cobrapost.

The sting operation conducted by Cobrapost on 23 key people of the Ram Janambhoomi movement -- including Sakshi Maharaj, Acharya Dharmendra, Uma Bharti, Mahant Vedanti and Vinay Katiyar -- claims that top BJP leaders like L K Advani and the then UP chief minister Kalyan Singh, as well the former Congress PM, P V Narasimha Rao, were aware of the planned demolition of Babri Masjid.

According to the Times of India, Cobrapost associate editor K Ashish travelled to Ayodhya, Faizabad, Tanda, Lucknow, Gorakhpur, Mathura, Moradabad in UP, Jaipur, Aurangabad, Mumbai and Gwalior interviewing 23 of those who participated in the operation. He clandestinely recorded conversations with them.

If what they claim is true, the Ram Janambhoomi leaders and activists toiled secretly for months on a plan codenamed 'Operation Janmabhoomi' and executed it with military precision. Volunteers were trained, logistics painstakingly put in place and the assault on the disputed shrine launched using large surging crowds with volunteers skilled in demolishing structures embedded in it.

Not only do those interviewed spell out details of the planning, they also allegedly reveal how enthusiastic young participants were deliberately used as cannon fodder by provoking a police firing on kar sevaks in 1990 because of the belief of some leaders that the movement would not gather steam unless 'some Hindus die'.

 Narasimha rao was congress PM aware of the demolition. By not preventing it congress is also a party for the demolition and has its hand stained. When congress owns good deeds of Nehru, when it owns good deeds of Narasimha rao, it cannot disown this. Congress is a communal virus for which no remedy is there. Only prevention is to encourage opposite parties.

atleast advani is getting his comeuppance in proportion to his karma. repeated a**kicking should force him to do some soul searching, though it is doubtful if rss people have souls.

based on advanis' case we can extrapolate what will be modis' prize when his protege takes over!

 >>What makes Babri Masjid unique is that it is the ONLY mosque to be demolished in India. Apart from that, it is completely irrelevant.

In 2002 alone about 500 were destroyed/damaged in Gujarat.  archive.indianexpress.com/news/fix-places-of-worship-destroyed-in-2002-riots-guj-hc-to-modi/909452/
