Even Muslim writers support the Shri Rama Janmabhoomi truth
Once again, we are not basing our facts on stories woven by “our community”. Many learned Muslim writers have documented the truth through their books.
One of the earliest books written (end of the 17th century and beginning of 18th century) by the daughter of Alamgir, the son of Bahadur Shah, clearly states that in the mosques built on the orders of Babar (Ba Farman-e-Badashahi), Muslims were not permitted to hold prayers or read the holy scriptures. It also states that the Hindus have a lot of faith in the temples situated in Mathura, Benaras and Avadh that hold significance as the birth place of Lord Krishna, the kitchen of Goddess Sita, the place where Lord Shri Rama and his devotee Lord Hanuman spent time. It also states that these places of worship were destroyed and mosques were built to display Islamic power.
Interestingly, she also writes that these mosques were not given permission to hold the prayers (Namaz or Juma) and at the same time, idol worship was also not permitted. The book says, “the sound of conch shells should not be allowed to fall on Muslims”. You can find the details in “Sahifa-e-ChahalNasa-ih-BahadurShahi”.
You would be surprised to know that in 1856, Mirzha Jan wrote a book by the name Hadika-e-Shahda. Mirza also highlights the fact that Sultans (Muslim rulers) encouraged the propagation and glorification of Islam and trampled the non-believers. The following translated text from the book is an eye-opener:
“This (Avadh) was a very big centre of worship and the capital city of the kingdom of Ram’s father. There was a majestic temple on the spot a huge Musjid was constructed there on and a small canopy Mosque (Kanati Masjid) on the spot, where there was a small Mandap. The Janmasthan temple was the original birth place (Maskat) of Ram. Adjacent to it, there is the SitaRasoi. ……Sita is the name of Ram’s wife. Hence Badashah Babar got constructed a tall (Sarbuland) Masjid on that spot under the guidance of MoosaAshikan. The same Mosque is known as SitaRasoi till today.”
Another author who confirms the same is Mirza Rajab Ali BaigSarur, who, in “Fasana-e-Ibrat” mentions that during the regime of Babar, a grand mosque was constructed in place of the SitaRasoi. This is the Babari structure. Since the Hindus were not strong enough to oppose, the mosque was constructed under the guidance of Sayyad Mir Ashikan.
If these are not enough, a little later in 1885, a book by the name Gumgasht-e-Halat-e-AyodhyaAvadh written by Moulavi Abdul Karim who was the then Imam of the Babri mosque, detailed that there was a Mahalla Akbarpur on the east of this Dargah, earlier known as Kot Raja Ramachandra. There were some Burj (large cells with domes) in this Kot. It also mentions that these places were the birth places of the King (Lord Rama) and that the Kitchen belonged to his wife. Babar, ordered the demolition of these houses and the construction of a grand Ajim (Mosque) on that spot.
Tarikh-e-Avadh, one of the most recently published books in 1909 by Allama Mohammed NazamulGhani Khan Rampuri, states that Babar constructed a grand mosque under the protection of SayyadAshikan at the same spot where once stood the temple of Janmasthan of Shri Ramachandra in Ayodhya. Just adjacent to it stood the SitaRasoi (Kitchen). The date of Mosque construction has been mentioned as KhairBanki (Al Hizri 923). Till today this is known as SitaRasoi. That demolished temple was right next to the SitaRasoi.
