Demolition Of Original Ram Mandir Was Aimed To Demoralize Hindus And Weaken Hindu Society

Demolition of the original Ram Mandir in Ayodhya 500 years ago was done with the aim to demoralize Hindus and weaken Hindu society. Invaders all around the world use this tactic - to demoralize a nation and society destroy their religious places.

The tactic of targeting and destroying religious places as a means to demoralize a nation or society has unfortunately been employed throughout history by various invaders and aggressors. Thousands of Hindu temples were destroyed by invaders.

The destruction of Hindu temples by various invading forces throughout history is a tragic and complex aspect of India's past. Over the centuries, several waves of invaders were involved in the desecration and destruction of thousands of Hindu temples.

One notable period of temple destruction occurred during the Islamic conquests in the Indian subcontinent, especially between the 10th and 18th centuries. Many Hindu temples were targeted during these invasions, and the reasons for such actions were multifaceted. Some invaders saw the destruction of temples as a means to establish dominance, while others viewed it as a way to suppress local resistance and assert their religious or political ideologies. One common factor in the destruction of Hindu temples was the intolerance of the invaders towards Sanatana Dharma.

This strategy often aims not only to physically dismantle sacred sites but also to undermine the spiritual and cultural foundation of the targeted community. We saw this a few years back when Buddhas of Bamiyan were destroyed and during the Yazidi genocide in Iraq. Just imagine the genocide and atrocities Hindus suffered for hundreds of years – attempts were made by so called liberals in India to erase this part of Indian history.

In instances of war or colonization, conquering forces deliberately targeted religious structures to weaken the resolve of the local population. By attacking places of worship, invaders aimed to disrupt the societal fabric, instill fear, and diminish the cultural and spiritual identity that often binds a community together.

This tactic is not limited to any particular region or time period; it has been witnessed in various parts of the world across different civilizations. The destruction of religious sites is symbolic, carrying a profound impact on the collective psyche of a society. Places of worship are not just physical structures; they often hold deep cultural and historical significance, serving as symbols of identity, unity, and shared values.

Despite the destructive nature of such tactics, communities often find resilience in rebuilding and preserving their cultural and religious heritage. The reconstruction of damaged religious sites can serve as a powerful symbol of strength, continuity, and the enduring spirit of a people. In the face of adversity, the restoration of these places becomes a testament to the resilience of communities and their commitment to preserving their cultural and spiritual legacy.

Hindus should learn lessons from the past and unite. True teachings of Sanatana Dharma need to be followed. We should see divinity in all living beings. We should help each other and progress. We should not be allowed to be divided in the name of caste, creed, sect, color, language, geography and by numerous other silly factors.
