Ayodhya The Dark Night : The Secret History of Rama's Appearance InBabri Masjid (English) (Hardcover) Price: Rs. 315

As the trespassers walked towards the mosque, the muezzin jumped out of the darkness. Before the adversaries could discover his presence, he dashed straight towards Abhiram Das, the vairagi who was holding the idol in his hands and leading the group of intruders. The sadhu quickly freed himself and, together with his friends, retaliated fiercely. Heavy blows began raining from all directions. Soon, the muezzin realized that he was no match for the men and that he alone would not be able to stop them.

22 December 1949: A conspiracy that began with the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi culminated in the execution of the Ayodhya strategy. Late that night, a little-known sadhu, Abhiram Das, and his followers entered the Babri Masjid and planted an idol of Rama inside it.

While it is known that the Hindu Mahasabha had a role in placing the idol in the mosque, the larger plot and the chain of events that led to that act have never been subject to rigorous scrutiny. Through intrepid research and investigation, Krishna Jha and Dhirendra K. Jha bring together the disparate threads of the buried narrative for the first time.

Through a series of first-hand interviews with eyewitnesses and the unearthing of archival material, the authors take us behind the scenes to examine the motivations and workings of the Mahasabha members who pulled the strings. They also examine the liaison between Mahasabhaites and Hindu traditionalists in the Congress an association that Jawaharlal Nehru sought to break in his cautious battle with Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and the right- wing forces. Ayodhya: The Dark Night uncovers, in vivid detail, what really transpired on the fateful night that was to leave a permanent scar on the Indian polity.

About the Author:

Krishna Jha is a Delhi-based freelance journalist who is the biographer of S.A. Dange, one of the founding fathers of the Indian communist movement.

Dhirendra K. Jha is a political journalist working with Open magazine, Delhi.

Communist Propoganda

Communist propaganda, with unchecked facts, a very protracted story about a Sadhu placing an idol inside the Babri Masjid. The whole story could have been written in 10 pages but the communist author chose to milk the story and keep relating unrelated things

Divisive ......

Not worth reading. Authors seem plagued with the mindset of distorting historical facts to mollify a particular section of Indian society to achieve some self-centered end. Authors claimed to be affiliates of India’s secularist bandwagon which has lost its credibility and has become a machine to insert rancor in Indian society.

Writing a one sided history

It was pathetic. For starters, the trouble seems to magically start in the 1940s. What about before that? Did Ayodhya appear out of the ocean or fall from the skies? It was around for millenniums before this. The book is written by some communal guy who would be glad if he could do his 2 bit to prove that the hindoos have started the entire trouble. Sorry, most hindus listen to the word - Ayodhya, even before they are born. So, don't try to fool anyone. To all readers, do not add this book to your list - either here, or from some library.

A page turner : first of it's kind

Just finished reading the book - a real treasure.I am sure lot of unknown facts are unfolded for the first time in this book.Although writers have a pre-set mind of being anti-hindu but that does not matter with the fact they produced.Very candid & well written.Only bad point is less number of photographs & almost no reference of vandalism conducted by muslims on hindu minorities in Bangladesh from 1947 - Over all a very very good book.
