Opening of Hindu temple in Ayodhya stirs bitter memories for India’s muslims | BBC News

Published

on



India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi is fulfilling a promise to Hindu nationalists with the opening of a vast new temple in the northern city of Ayodhya.

But for India’s Muslims it evokes bitter memories of sectarian violence and bloodshed. More than 30 years ago Hindu rioters pulled down the historic mosque that had stood on the site in Ayodhya.
In the violence that spread across India thousands of people lost their lives. It marked a turning point in independent India’s transformation from a secular state, with the rise of militant Hindu nationalism.

The opening of the new temple by Mr Modi marks the start of his re-election campaign, as he appeals to India’s Hindu majority to back him for a third term in office.

Jane Hill presents BBC News at Ten reporting by Yogita Limaye in Ayodhya.

    I don't understand why the BBC only presents partial information about the ongoing religious divisions between Muslims and Hindus in India, which originated from the actions of British colonizers and white supremacists years ago and still today. The Babri Mosque was constructed by Mughal commander Mir Baqi during the reign of the first Mughal king, Babur and before that, stood a Hindu temple on the same land that was forcibly demolished. All the evidence was presented to the Supreme Court in India, and a decision was reached. I believe disagreement with this decision implies a lack of trust in the Indian judicial system and this one sided narrative seems to reflect a extreme Marxist perspective.

    BBC is always trying to show India and Hindus in poor light. BBC should wake up. They just hate India progressing. For everything they try to paint India as non secular.

    The Babri Masjid that was torn down was built on a Hindu temple that was demolished by Babar to build the mosque. This was proven in a SC case wherein remains of Hindu temple were shown. So how can you justify mosques built on other people's temples or churches.

    I can feel sympathy for the predicament of the modern Indian Muslims,
    but the fact remains: the original Hindu temple was destroyed by ancient Muslims centuries ago, and a mosque built on its ruins.
    If you don't like people knocking down your mosques, don't build them on other people's holy sites.

US journalist Evan Gershkovich jailed in Russia | BBC News

Published

on



US journalist Evan Gershkovich has been found guilty of spying by a Russian court and sentenced to 16 years in a high-security prison, after a secretive trial labelled a “sham” by his employer, his family and the White House.

The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reporter was arrested by security services in March 2023 while working as a reporter in the city of Yekaterinburg, about 1,600km (1,000 miles) east of Moscow.

Russia accuses him of working for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), accusations that Gershkovich, the WSJ and the US strongly deny.

He’s the first US journalist to be convicted for espionage in Russia since the Cold War ended more than 30 years ago.

UN top court says Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories is illegal | BBC News

Published

on



The UN’s top court has said Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories is against international law, in a landmark opinion.

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) said Israel should stop settlement activity in the occupied West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza and end its “illegal” occupation of those areas as soon as possible.

The court’s advisory opinion is not legally binding but still carries significant political weight. It marks the first time the ICJ has delivered a position on the legality of the 57-year occupation.

The ICJ, based at The Hague in the Netherlands, has been examining the issue since the beginning of last year, at the request of the UN General Assembly.
