Who destroyed Ram temple in Ayodhya?

Babur came to India in 1526 to fight the war against Ibrahim Lodi. Two years later in 1528, Babur's Subedar Mirbaki built a mosque in Ayodhya. Named it Babri Masjid in Babur's honor. The dispute over this mosque began in 1858, 330 years later.

In 1528, Babur's Subedar Mirbaki built a mosque in Ayodhya. It was named Babri Masjid in honor of Babur. Communal violence erupted in Ayodhya for the first time in 1853 under the Nawab of Awadh, Wajid Ali Shah. The Hindu community said that the mosque was built by breaking the temple.

Archaeological Survey Of India excavation done in 2002 during AB Vajyapee's government also showed that there was a Ram Mandir before a forced Masjid was built over it. While Shia Muslims believed it was built by Mir Baki, the Sunni Muslims call it Allah's home which was built was by Babur. Finally in 2020 under then CJI Ranjan Gogoi's headship the supreme court gave the verdict in favour of Ram Lala Ji (Hindu side) while 5 acres of outside land was given for masjid.
