Kiran Bedi Shares Babri Masjid Demolition video

Bengaluru: In a shocking incident, students in a school in Karnataka’s Dakshina Kannada district re-enacted demolishing an imaginary Babri Masjid during an event in which Puducherry lieutenant-governor (LG) Kiran Bedi and ministers were present.

The 16th century Babri Masjid was demolished on December 06, 1992 by Hindu extremists in the presence of top RSS, BJP, VHP, Bajrang Dal leaders. The Supreme Court of India in its judgement pronounced on November 09 termed the incident illegal.

A case is also pending in the Supreme Court against the perpetrators, including senior BJP leaders LK Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi.

However, this did not deter the school management led by a local RSS leader to allow the students from enacting and celebrating the incident which has been called illegal by the apex court and had also led to widespread violence against Muslims in 90s.

Making the things worst, Puducherry Lieutenant Governor Kiran Bedi shared videos of the event on social media.

In the viral video, inside a map of India formed by students sitting on the periphery, several students in the centre were seen rushing towards the image of Babri Masjid to pounce on it and raze it.

Dressed in saffron and white, the students waved the double triangle saffron flag after destroying the image of Babri Masjid while raising 'Jai Bajrangbali', "Bolo Bharat mata ki jai' and 'Jai Hanuman' slogans.

A commentary in Kannada described the Ram Janmabhoomi and other issues during the enactment. “With enthusiasm, Hanuman bhakts with Hanuman’s anger, they bring down Babri structure. Bolo Shri Ramachandra ki, Jai!”, the commentator yelled.

Bedi also shard a video of school children forming the image of the proposed Ram temple in Ayodhya and depicted sea waves through human forms and movements.

"Performances enabled the school ensure all of its 3,800 plus students participate in the annual festival of Sri Ram Vidya Kendra, Kalladka Village, near Mangalore," tweeted Bedi about the event that happened on Sunday night.

The school, located by the Bengaluru National Highway, was established in the 1980's under the Puttur Vidyavardhana Sanghya and is apparently owned by RSS leader Prabhakar Bhat.

When asked to comment on the event, Bhat said that he didn't agree with the recent Supreme Court judgement on the Babri Masjid case.

“Even though the Supreme Court has said what happened in Babri was wrong, we have questioned that part of the judgement itself. We cannot accept everything that is said in the judgement. I don’t agree with it,” he said.

He also said that the students were merely depicting a historical event and that there was nothing wrong with that. “We have depicted Jallianwala Bagh as well. Did anyone highlight that?” he said.

Interestingly, Prime Minister Modi routinely asks people to come closer, keep away from the forces trying to divide the society on communal lines and work together for a better India. He however turns a blind eye to such events organised by his party supporters.
