Ram Janmabhumi

From Hindupedia, the Hindu Encyclopedia

Ram Janmabhumi refers to the sacred city of Ayodhya, which gave birth to Ram, the son of King Dasratha in the Ikṣvaku Dynasty. This dynasty was established by Rishabha the first Jain Tirthankar who was also born in Ayodhya within the Satya Yuga. The Koṣala Kingdom's capital was Ayodhya. In fact, 4 other Tirthankars were born here afterwards.

This sacred city has also been known in scriptures as Ikṣvakubhumi, Koṣala, Prathamapuri, Ramapuri, Saketa, Sukoṣala, Vinita and Visaha.

Ram Janmabhumi Movement[edit]

The movement known as 'Ram Janmabhumi' is associated with rebuilding the Ram temple that had existed there before its demolition and building of a mosque in place by Babur Mughal.

This is one 1 of countless examples wherein a non-Islamic shrine is converted into an Islamic 1 to promote Muslim supremacy and the supremacy of Islam over other religions.

Despite the archaeological findings by the Archaeological Survey of India that indeed a temple stood in place of the Babri Masjid, most Muslims and pseudo-secularists deny the proof. To suppose that Islamists converted shrines elsewhere into mosques but India was an exception would go against the historical evidence too. Great Mosque of Herat was a Zoroastrian temple, Kümbet Mosque of Kars a Christian church, Al-Aqsa of Jerusalem a Jewish synagogue, Lalish Mosque a Yezidi temple, etc.
