The Ram Mandir and Babri Masjid case has been something that no one has been able to put a lid on. The dispute that took place because a plot of land in Ayodhya was said to be Lord Ram’s birthplace. The Babri Masjid was also located on the same plot of land.  The mosque has been said to be built in 1528.

On this very day in 1992, extremist Hindu outfits rallied in favor of building a Ram Mandir on the same site. The rally took a dark turn and caused riots all over the country. It was reported that 2000 people were killed because of the riots but there were a lot more lives that were damaged. More than 9000 crore worth property was damaged due to the riots. This is how ‘Black Day’ looked.
