(This podcast was first published on 6 December 2019 and is being republished from The Quint's archives to mark the anniversary of Babri Masjid demolition in 1992.)

Ayodhya, a small temple town in Uttar Pradesh, is loaded with medieval history and Hindu mythology.

There were, of course, little skirmishes here and there but nothing big enough to be a national issue until the events in the run-up to 6 December 1992 and the demolition of the Babri Masjid that set India on a different political course altogether.

It's been many years since the 16th-century mosque was razed, and the violence and political events that took place in the aftermath are well documented. So, for this episode, we asked journalists and a film-maker to recount what happened on 6 December 1992, the day Babri Masjid was demolished. Tune in!
