Heavy security in Ayodhya on Babri Masjid demolition's 26th anniversary

Heavy security deployment has been made in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh on the 26th anniversary of the razing of the 16th century Babri Masjid by a Hindu mob.

Major roads have been barricaded and vigil has been stepped up around the disputed site. People visiting the temple of Ram Lalla, that was set up hurriedly on the ruins of the mosque, are being frisked thoroughly.

On December 6, 1992, tens of thousands of Hindu extremists ripped apart the 16th century Babri mosque at Ayodhya in as security forces watched. Hindus say it is the birthplace of their god Ram and contend a temple to him stood on the site before the mosque.

Lal Krishna Advani was charged in court with inciting religious riots that triggered the razing of a mosque in 1992 and left thousands dead. Former deputy prime minister Advani, leader of the Bharatiya Janata Party, has always denied any wrongdoing in the razing of the 16th century Babri mosque in Ayodhya. The charges against Advani were thrown out of court in 2003, but a higher court overturned that decision earlier this month and ordered him and seven others to stand trial.
