The National Council for Educational Research and Training’s (NCERT) new Class 12 political science textbook has stirred controversy by omitting direct mention of the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya, instead describing it as a “three-dome structure” built at the site believed to be Lord Ram’s birthplace by Mughal emperor Babur’s general Mir Baqi in the 16th century.

The revised textbook, as reported by The Indian Express, highlights that the structure exhibited Hindu symbols and artifacts both inside and outside.

In the new textbook, references have been removed and replaced with an excerpt stating, “In 1986, the situation regarding the three-dome structure took a significant turn when the Faizabad (now Ayodhya) district court ruled to unlock the structure, allowing people to worship there. The dispute had been ongoing for many decades, as it was believed that the three-dome structure was built at Shri Ram’s birthplace after demolition of a temple.”

According to The Indian Express, the new textbook highlights that Hindus felt their concerns about “the birthplace of Shri Ram” were ignored, while Muslims “sought assurance of their possession over the structure.”
