The Hindus are seriously trying to regain control of the RAM JANMABHOOMI and construct a grand temple for sri RAM.

How Ram janmabhoomi evolved? How it went out of our hands? What were the attempts taken by Hindus to regain possession of the janma bhoomi? Many such questions remain unanswered.

The time has come for people to know the truth.The city of Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh was home to a large number of Saiva and Vaishnava temples. Hanuman ghari is one of the most popular temples in Ayodhya. Even today many monkeys roam there reminding us of hanuman.

Half a mile from Hanuman ghari is the most sacred spot in ayodhya: "the Ram Janmasthan".

The temple that the people of Ayodhya built for lord Ram was later renovated and developed into a very big structure by Raja Vikramaditya.

The magnificent gopuram along with its seven kalashaas was so tall that it could be seen from over a large distance (like the thanjavur Shiva temple).The temple was spread over an area of 600 acres. The temple had a beautiful flower garden called "latha kunj". There was a beautiful well inside the garden premises.

In the beginning of the 11th century Yogi Shyamanand Baba arrived at Ayodhya and started staying in the temple. Due to his yogic powers the temple attained more glory than ever before. Attracted by his yogic powers, many became his disciples. One day a Muslim fakir by name "Kaajal Abbas Moosa Ashiq Khan Shah" begged the Baba to accept him as a disciple.

The Baba was magnanimous and immediately accepted him as a disciple. In due course Kaajal Abbas Khan attained many yogic powers.

Hearing that a Muslim had obtained yogic powers by becoming Shyamanand Baba's disciple another Muslim by name Jalaal Shah approached the Baba. Jalaal Shah had evil intentions. He wanted to use yogic powers to spread Islam and establish it in every corner of India. He came to know of the importance and power of the Ram Janmasthan from the Baba. He came to know that by mere chanting of mantras in he Janmabhoomi one could attain super human powers. So he desired to build a masjid in the same spot so as to enable his Muslim brothers to attain power and glory.

Jalaal started burying the dead bodies of Muslims in the vicinity of the janmasthan. Many mosques and tombs started sprouting near the birthplace of Ram. The innocent sadhus and harmless Hindus did not understand Jalaal Shah's evil intentions. By then Jalaal Shah became very popular due to the magical powers that he had gained from the Baba. It was 1526. Despite winning the first battle of panipat Baabar continued to face resistances in many parts of the country. In 1528 Baabar was defeated in a battle against Rana Sangraam Singh in Fatehpur Sikhri. Humiliated by the defeat, Baabar ran away from the battlefield and sought shelter in Ayodhya. He came to know of the yogis who were living in Ayodhya. The Muslim fakirs told him of Shyaamanand Baba. Through them he met the Baba. He requested the Baba to bless him, so that he could defeat Sangraam Singh. The Baba blessed him. With the help of 60 lakh troops, Baabar defeated Sangraam Singh. He immediately met the Muslim fakirs who had helped him to meet Shyaamanand Baba and asked them" in what way he could show his gratitude." Jalaal Shah came into the scene. He told Baabar "there... can you see the temple of Ram. Pull that temple down and in that sacred spot build us a mosque. There could be no better place on earth to offer five times namaaz to Allah". Baabar hesitated. He told them "I shall build you a grand mosque near the temple. Why pull down the temple?" To this Jalaal Shah replied, "You don't know the power of that site. If possible build us

mosque on that very spot. If this is not possible I have nothing more to ask you." Babaar thought, "what if the Baba feels offended? Well I wont do this job myself".

So he gave the responsibility of pulling down the temple to his general MIR BAAKIR THASHKENT. Baabar went back to his capital. Muslim soldiers were sent to carry out the general's order. The temple was reduced to rubble. When Shyamaanand Baba came to know of this betrayal he lost no time in escaping to uttarakhand with Ram Laala's moola vigraha (main idol) safe in his custody. After entirely destroying the temple complex, the Muslim soldiers came to destroy the garbha graha (place where the lord resides). The priest of the temple showed his chest and declared "I will fight till the last drop of my blood. None of you shall enter the temple while I am still alive". Many other priests joined him and put up a brave resistance. Jalaal Shah was thirsting for kafir blood and ordered his troops to slay all the priests.

The Muslim army marched over the corpses of the pujaris and reduced the portion around the garbha graha to dust. Many devotees came to know of the demolition. They too sacrificed their lives to save the temple. In last desperate effort Raja Mehthaabh Singh of Bhithi (Bhithi is in Faizabad district) sent message to all neighboring Hindu kingdoms. Within a single night, troops were mobilized. At dawn, the next day "Hindu forces arrived and surrounded the temple". The battle for the temple raged for another 15 days.

Unfortunately the Hindu forces scattered in front of Baabar's cannons.

Two lakh people died in the attempt to save the beloved temple of their Ram Lala. In the battle led by the Bhithi Maharaja alone "174000 Hindus sacrificed their lives". Raja Mehthaabh Singh of Bhithi, Raja Ran Vijay Singh of Hatishwaar state and Raja Sangraam Singh of Magraahi state were among the martyrs. Even after the mosque was built on the site, Hindus did not accept defeat and struggled continuously to regain the land. Baabar was amazed this determination and gave a small portion of the Ram Janmasthaan to Hindus for conducting poojaas. Hindus were not satisfied. They wanted to get back the entire janmasthaan. Baabar got irritated. He immediately announced through his Ayodhya governor: "here after no Hindu from outside ayodhya will be allowed visit Ram janmasthaan. Violation of this rule will lead to imprisonment." Mention of such an order by a Baabar can be seen in the "July 6th 1934 edition of the MODERN REVIEW." It also mentions that the mosque was constructed out of the same material used for the temple.
