Product Description


22 December 1949: A conspiracy that began with the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi culminated in the execution of the Ayodhya strategy. Late that night, a little-known sadhu, Abhiram Das, and his followers entered the Babri Masjid and planted an idol of Rama inside it. While it is known that the Hindu Mahasabha had a role in placing the idol in the mosque, the larger plot and the chain of events that led to that act have never been subject to rigorous scrutiny. Krishna Jha and Dhirendra K. Jha bring together the disparate threads of the buried narrative for the first time. Ayodhya: The Dark Night uncovers, in vivid detail, what really transpired on the fateful night that was to leave a permanent scar on the Indian polity.‰Û÷A brilliant account of the conspiracy and what actually happened on the night of 22 December 1949‰۪‰ÛÓFree Press Journal

‰Û÷The book demonstrates how and why the Ayodhya issue came alive after decades to rewrite our politics.‰۪‰ÛÓTehelka

‰Û÷In this painstakingly compiled book, the authors demonstrate that far from being a miracle, the appearance of the idol in the mosque was the outcome of a diabolical game of power and pelf ‰Û? the outcome of the Jhas‰۪ research is a racy story that reads almost like fiction.‰۪‰ÛÓThe Hindu

‰Û÷It uncovers a wider plot to recast the Indian polity, of which the takeover of the Babri Masjid on the night of December 22-23, 1949, was but a subplot. It is by far the most revealing book on that sordid episode.‰۪‰ÛÓFrontline
