the issue is not really whether a temple was destroyed to build a mosque. historical evidence on that is deeply divided. the problem is if we go into that we have demolish thousands of mosques to find out whether they were built on the rubbles of Hindu temples; and demolish thousands of Hindu temples to find out whether they were built on mosques or Buddhist shrines or may be shrines of other sects. Does our society need such a exercise in demolishing mosques and temples and dig up what lies below them in the 21st century? or shall we see whatever existed on the ground at the time of our birth as a modern nation - 15th August 1947 - as a part of our common cultural heritage?
