Babri Masjid: Mosque in Ayodhya, India, destroyed in 1992
Babri Masjid was a mosque in Ayodhya, India at a site believed by many Hindus to be the birthplace of Hindu deity Rama. It has been a focus of dispute between the Hindu and Muslim communities since the 18th century. According to the mosque's inscriptions, it was built in 1528–29 by general Mir Baqi, on the orders of the Mughal emperor Babur. The mosque was attacked and demolished by Hindu Karsevaks in 1992, which ignited communal violence across the Indian subcontinent.
