6 Dec 1992 – Hindu Extremists demolishing Babri Masjid in India

India has witnessed the most heinous crime on 6 December 1992 when a frenzied mob of hindu extremists pushed the historic Babri Masjid built by Mughal empire into the pages of history.

They stormed the Masjid in Ayodhya and demolished it with no resistance from police and para-military forces. Babri Masjid demolition also resulted in bloody riots in several major cities of the country surpassing all previous limits in brutality, killing and raping.

By any account, Babri Masjid’s demolition and subsequent riots remain a shame for modern secular India.
