IN­DIA PROTEST

Porterville Recorder - - RELIGION -

A man stands dressed as Hindu god Ram, cen­ter, as ac­tivists of right wing Hindu groups shout slo­gans de­mand­ing that a tem­ple of Hindu god Ram be made at Ay­o­d­hya on the Babari an­niver­sary of Mosque de­mo­li­tion in New Delhi, In­dia, Thurs­day, Dec. 6. Hard-line Hin­dus are de­mand­ing a Hindu tem­ple be built on a site in north­ern In­dia where they in 1992 had at­tacked and de­mol­ished a 16th cen­tury mosque, spark­ing deadly Hindu-mus­lim vi­o­lence. The Hindu hard-lin­ers are build­ing pres­sure on Prime Minister Naren­dra Modi’s gov­ern­ment to move quickly on the is­sue.
