The truth of 2.77 acre land and birth place of Ram Lala Virajman lies beneath the surface of site and is as old as the human civilization. People first debate whether the existence of lord Rama is true or he was mere a mythological character about whom you can read in books like ‘Ramayana’ and Ramcharit Manas. Whether Concept of ‘Incarnation and Reincarnation’ itself is true, is defined in different ways in different religions. If religions like ‘Islam’ does not believe in Incarnation and reincarnation then it can also not be proved that incarnation and reincarnation does not occur. It is not a time when someone sitting outside borders of India teach us a lesson about truth of Ram, incarnation and reincarnation and if or not he was incarnation of Lord Vishnu. As Hindi saying goes’Mano to Dev Nahi To Patthar’ (If you believe then a Stone can be considered as God). We can also not see ‘Atoms’ by naked eyes and there are many materialistic things which can also not be seen by naked eyes but it does not mean that they do not exist. In comparison to these its easy to believe that Ram was not a mythological character but a truth. There are many sites, names and places which makes you believe that Ram existed .He had his ancestors and his successors. If you cannot believe in Ram then believe me people will also not believe that someone like Mahatma Gandhi walked on this Earth after 2-3 thousand years as Elbert Einstein had feared
So try to digest the fact that Ayodhya which is located on south of mighty river Saryu since time immortal is a truth and so is Janakpur,Mithila,Chitrakoot,Panchvati,Kiskindha,Rameshwarma,Lanka,Ravan,Seeta and Ramsetu to which NASA refers as Adam’s Bridge. The Western Historian who believed and wrote about truth of existence of Lord Ram were not fools. Do also believe that that attackers from Middle East Asia and Central Asia destroyed Indian Civilization Many a times and penetrated in it, Mogul Emperor Babar was one of them. During Buddha 's time (600 BC ) the current city was called Saket and was among six most developed cities in North India. Kumargupt or Skandgupta made it capital of ‘Gupta Dynasty’ and since then it is called Ayodhya.The famous Sanskrit Poet ‘Kaalidaas’ wrote Raghuvansh’ here and also wrote about Gorptar Ghat or Guptar Ghat where Ram took ‘Jalsamadhi’. Gautam Buddh Spent 16 years of Ayodhya. Many Jain teerthankars including the first one ‘Rishabhdev’ was born here. Francis Buchanan and Alexander Cunningham write about Hindus worshiping at a Ram Temple and further denote that Ayodhya went in oblivion after Ram and this was Shakari Vikramditya who revived it. Chandragupta II 's daughter , Prabhatigupt was a Ram devotee and her son , Praversen II has written Setubandh and equals Ram to Lord Vishnu and writes about Ram Temple in 450 AD which was located in an area called Ramtek in Center of Ayodhya .
Babar ordered his aide Mir Baqi to destroy that Gupta period Vishnu Temple and subsequently built a mosque. In modern days and before demolition of mosque Ram’s birthplace was located in Center of City on a mond in Ramdurg or Ramkot Area which still is there. The inscription found on destroyed structure read that that it was Babur who ordered in 1528 AD to Mir Baqi to built mosque.
Maulvi Abdul Ghaffar and historian Harsh denotes that young Babar came from Kabul to Avadh ( Ayodhya ) in disguise as Kalandar ( Sufi ) to whom we can possibly say a fact finder or a Secret Missionary to know about a Religious Place. Here he met Sufi saint Shah Jalal Chishti and Syed Musa Asikan and took boon and oath to conquer India and subsequently build a mosque at the place of Ram Temple and then returned to Kabul. Abdul Ghaffar 's book does not talk about oath but it clearly mentions his meetings with Sufi Sant Shah Jalal Chishti and Syed Mustfa Asikan who blessed him to conquer India. Maulvi Abdul Karim ,who was spiritual descendants of Musa translated the book in Urdu and his Grandson Abdul Gaffar further added footnotes in it who further details about Babar’s oath to conquer India,Destroy and subsequently build a mosque at Ram Temple and returning to Kabul after Oath and then again coming back to Delhi where he met Sultan Lodhi in same disguise as Kalanadar .This incident is described in detail in Abdul Gaffar’s Tareekh-E Dawoodi. Musa Asikan’s majar was also located near Mosque and was made up of Black Basalt stone which proves that these basalt stones were previously used in temple and some of those stones were reused for building mosque. A Stone Inscription also denotes and calls Mogul Emperor Babur as Babur Kalandar.
First description of a Mosque was found in a book Sahifa - A - Cihil Nasah Bahadur Shahi which was written by Emperor Bahadur Shah (1643-1712)’s daughter and the Emperor Aurangzeb 's granddaughter refers that mosque 's construction in Mathura , Varanasi and Avadh was done after destroying temples In avdah. Hindu devotees called it " Sita 's Kitchen " ( Sita 's Rasoi ) and " Hanuman 's abode " . While name of Babar is not mentioned in Mathura and Kashi but it correlates it with Emperor Aurangzeb.
