7 Reasons why the Babri Masjid was Unislamic

Babri Masjid

The Babri Masjid was demolished on this day 24 years ago (December 6, 1992). We have prepared a comprehensive list of 7 legal/religious reasons. Rebuilding the mosque is out of question; they should not have built it in the first place:

  1. A Hindu ritual called the prana pratishtha is carried out to grant a building the status of a temple. As the name of the term itself suggests, Hinduism believes that a temple has some kind of a “prana” (life). However, there is no such obligation on a mosque. Therefore, the Babri Masjid is not of as much historic importance to Islam as the Ramjanmabhoomi does to Hinduism.
  2. On the other hand, a mosque is defined as a PRAYER HALL. Islam allows the shifting of a mosque. In fact, even countries strictly complying with Sharia (such as Saudi Arabia) destroy mosques for roads & development projects. Sharia is uniform all over the world. When Islamic countries are behaving this way, secular countries can, too!
  3. The tenets of Islam clearly state that:
    If nobody offers prayers inside a mosque for 40 days; the structure ceases its mosque status.
    However, Babri Masjid was abandoned for very long. The structure lost its status several years ago; leave alone at the time of its destruction.
  4. It is a historic fact that not only shifting, Islam also allows the razing of a mosque as per requirement. In fact, the first Prophet of Islam, Shri Mohammed himself destroyed a mosque that he had earlier approved. The mosque was called Masjid-al-Dirar. For those interested in further reading, there is an article on Wikipedia about this.
  5. Now, coming to Babri Masjid, Islam does not allow the building of a mosque on DISPUTED LAND. However, the land in Ayodhya has been under dispute/litigation for the past several hundred years. The land is not appropriate and eligible for building a mosque.
  6. Furthermore, Islam does not allow the building of a mosque over other religious structure.  During the investigation of the Ayodhya site, the Archeological Survey of India found a huge Hindu temple beneath the Babri Masjid.
  7. Some members of the Sunni Waqf Board take shelter of Adverse Possession Laws. However, the law has clearly laid out the conditions of Adverse Possession. To claim right over a property, the occupant must hold the property peacefully without any intrusion or dispute for a period of 12 years. This particular case of Babri Masjid does not fulfil even one of the 3 conditions of Adverse Possession Laws as under:
    1. Peaceful Possession: The communities share a history of violence in the vicinity.
    2. Intrusion: Historically, Kar Sevaks keep visiting the site every year for offering their services to their God.
    3. Undisputed: Hidden in the pages of history is a long list of protests that the Hindu Community has registered against the construction. Hindus have not kept quiet for even a single year.

All these facts in mind, the structure was not even a mosque on 06/12/1992. Nobody can argue in favour of the same, not using the Constitution of India, not as per Hindu traditions, and not even the Tenets of Islam.
