Looking beyond demolition

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan I Hindustan Times I April 25, 1995

When an enraged mob of Hindu fanatics demolished the Babri Masjid of Ayodhya and replaced it with a makeshift mandir, it became an act, which was both climactic and terminal. It was not the peaking of an upsurge, but its end. Every destructive activity has an outer limit, and when this limit is reached, no further destruction can take place.

Unravelling The Ayodhya Knot

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan I February 11, 1993

The issue of Ayodhya’s Babri masjid has turned into one of life and death for the Muslim community. The tragic event of December 6 gave a serious jolt to the conscience of the country. What was deplorable was that it made a mockery of the promises by the leaders of the Ram mandir movement. Given all these factors, the destruction of the mosque was not simply the demolition of a structure; it was akin to the negation of an entire history.
