After much thinking, this is what I think should be done about the Babri Masjid conflict. All the arguing parties must be told to go home and forget it.

The whole land should be returned to the Earth – Nature. Nothing built. Left to grow wild. Totally wild. After all, before a Masjid, before a Temple, it belonged to the Earth. And there it should go back after her kids failed to be human in their devotion.

There should be no maintaining, nothing. Let it just be and go wild. Let trees and plants do what they will, animals find shelter, whatever.

It should be a monument to the price people demand and pay in the name of religion.

People who lose loved ones to religious conflict should be allowed to look in through gates and rest the memory of their loved ones here. As a country, as a world, it should be the only living monument and place of worship that can’t be entered. A monument of absence. The absence of humanity.

  1. There is anyways lot of illegal encroachment of unused land everywhere. Here it will become battlefield (literally) of religious armies(literally) fighting(literally) for control. Nice concept, but I feel it is highly unfeasible.

    Something needs to be built on it which it would be a horrid idea to destroy, like maybe a hospital or orphanage or old age home or something (which cannot be funded by any religious charities as a rule, which might try to fund them for moral victory)

    Or maybe a museum that picks and talks about various incidents of Hindu-Muslim co-operation in India’s history, shows some kind of relics of the times when Hindus-Muslims lived peacefully and co-operatively. Maybe govt would still need to provide it good military or police protection, I don’t know.

  2. If what you suggest happen in future people will start saying this was the forest where Raman spend 14 years………and what not!
