Ayodhya Ram Temple will be grandly opened on January 22. Following this, various political leaders are also expected to attend the event. In this case, it is said that on December 27, a threat was received from the X Site to the ‘Uttar Pradesh DGP Headquarters’ in the name of Muslims, saying that the Ram Temple would be blown up and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and the Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force (STF) would be attacked. Bomb threats are also said to have been sent to STF Additional Director General of Police (ADG) Amitabh Yash and Devendra Tiwari.
The discovery ‘in the name of Muslims’ sparked riots:
In this case, when the e-mails were technically examined, it was found that the people who made the threats were not Muslims and that they had mistakenly sent the e-mails from X site in the name of Muslims. Omprakash Mishra and Tahar Singh were arrested on January 3 by the task force. The Special Investigation Police are actively investigating their background. The investigation also revealed that the two from Gonda had sent threats from the X account ‘@iDevendraOffice’.
What is the reason for the ongoing controversies in Ayodhya?
It is said that the Babri Masjid was built in the year 1528 by ‘Mir Baqi’, the general of the Mughal emperor. In this case, after the BJP came to power in UP in 1991, the Babri Masjid was demolished on December 02, 1992, claiming that the mosque was the birthplace of Lord Rama and that the Babri Masjid was built there after the Ram temple in Ayodhya was demolished. This was followed by various riots across the country.
As a result, since 1992, Ayodhya has continued to face many issues. In this instance, the Supreme Court decided on November 9, 2019, following several disputes, that a Ram temple could be constructed and that Muslims ought to be granted five acres of land so they could construct a mosque. Afterwards, in 2020, the Union Government formed a foundation called ‘Sri Ram Janmbhoomi Teerth Kshetra’ and commenced the construction of a Ram temple.
Likewise, Masjid Muhammad Bin Abdullah, India’s biggest mosque, to be built in Dhannipur, 25 km from Ayodhya, and will house the largest Quran in the world, standing 21 feet tall and 36 feet wide.
After multiple chaotic issues and solutions, the incident involving a fictitious bomb threat made in the name of Muslims at the Ayodhya Ram Temple is now considered an act of religiously motivated communal incitement. The number of cases involving hate speech disseminated by identifying specific individuals has increased from 323 in 2014 to 1,804 in 2020, as per the NCRB 2021 data.
So the government must take precautionary measures to prevent such hate incidents..!
