I suppose Ramayana .....
The town of Ayodhya, in modern day Uttar Pradesh, has early origins, and is believed by many Hindus to be the actual birthplace of Lord Rama, as it is mentioned in the Ramayana. The controversy arose because of the location of the mosque, the Babri Masjid, which is believed to have been built by the Mughal Emperor Babur, after having torn down a Hindu temple to Ram, which existed on that spot. However, there doesn't seem to be any evidence to suggest that he actually did so, but that didn't stop Hindu fanatics from tearing down the mosque in a shameful destruction that led to violence all over the country. Recent excavations onthe site for proof of the existence of such a temple, have not been conclusive either .

Ramayana

The town of Ayodhya, in modern day Uttar Pradesh, has early origins, and is believed by many Hindus to be the actual birthplace of Lord Rama, as it is mentioned in the Ramayana. The controversy arose because of the location of the mosque, the Babri Masjid, which is believed to have been built by the Mughal Emperor Babur, after having torn down a Hindu temple to Ram, which existed on that spot. However, there doesn't seem to be any evidence to suggest that he actually did so, but that didn't stop Hindu fanatics from tearing down the mosque in a shameful destruction that led to violence all over the country. Recent excavations onthe site for proof of the existence of such a temple, have not been conclusive either, though they provided some interesting finds all the same. The matter has gone to the courts, and as of 2004, there doesn't seem to be any resolution in sight, though every now and then a some politician or the other raises this issue for a vote or two.
