Description

A judicious mix of a scholarly approach with the author's ringside view of the flow of events, this work is the first holistic analysis of the events and factors leading to the destruction of the Babri Masjid.

December 6, 1992. The date when the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya was demolished. A date that marks a major watershed in Indian politics.

The book scrutinizes politics, mythology, history, law and other facets of the dispute over the medieval mosque and emerging shape of things in India. Lucidly expressed, substantiated with facts and analysis, it passionately demystifies all question that have surfaced in the wake of the Ayodhya controversy.

A compelling read.
