Commenting on the construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, BZ Zameer Ahmed Khan, Minister in the Karnataka Government said that not only Muslims in Karnataka but Muslims across the country are not against Ram Mandir to be built in Ayodhya.

“Build Ram Mandir but our mosque which was martyred should also be made. We are not against Ram Mandir, we are just demanding our right,” Khan added.

The decade-long Ayodhya case has taken many turns till now, since December 6, 1992, when thousands of right-wing activists knocked down the Babri mosque in Ayodhya saying it was built on a Temple marking the birthplace of Lord Ram which was destroyed in the 16th century.

The Supreme Court bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi had listed hearing in January 2019 on a batch of petitions challenging the 2010 Allahabad High Court verdict trifurcating the disputed site in Ayodhya into three parts for Ram Lalla, Nirmohi Akhara and the original Muslim litigant.

In 2010, Allahabad High Court ruled the verdict that the 2.5 acres disputed land of Ayodhya site should be divided equally between the Nirmohi Akhara, Lord Ram Deity and Sunni Waqf Board.

Around 2,000 people across the country were killed in the riots that followed the Babri Masjid demolition.
