Women and girls gather at Hyderabad’s Sayeedabad as one more December 6 arrives bringing back the agonising memories of Babri Masjid demolition.
Scores of Muslim women came to attend the prayer gathering which was held in an open ground on Tuesday.
They offered congregatory prayers and stood in supplication chanting Qunut e Nazilah, a prayer in Islamic tradition made during a crisis or in the face of oppression.
Earlier, the Muslim women of Sayeedabad had organised similar gatherings and protests during anti-CAA agitations.
31 years have passed since the fateful day when a mob of Hindu nationalists razed the centuries-old Babri Masjid in Ayodhya.
Despite the years-long struggle for justice, the Supreme Court of India on 09 November 2019 ordered the entire land to be allocated for the construction of a temple, granting amnesty to the perpetrators of the Babri demolition.
On 05 August 2020, Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the Ram temple’s foundation stone on the land where Babri mosque was located.
The inauguration of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya is set for 22 January 2024.
