The country’s ruling party BJP lost in Faizabad seat in Ayodhya city of Uttar Pradesh, India.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya last January at a cost of Rs 1,800 crore.

Prime Minister Modi’s party BJP emerged in national politics in 1990 by demanding the construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya.

There was a 16th century mosque where the Ram Mandir was built. But radical Hindutva demolished the mosque in 1992. They claim that in the 16th century, the temple was demolished and the mosque was built here. Taking this claim, they demolished the mosque. There was a riot about that.

Meanwhile, it is feared that the ruling BJP will be defeated in the entire Uttar Pradesh in this election. Faizabad seat is located here.

The Samajwadi Party and the Congress, the two main opposition parties to the BJP, are leading in more than half of Uttar Pradesh’s 80 seats.

Hindus and Muslims have long had a dispute over the site where the temple is built. Then the Supreme Court of India in a judgment given in 2019 gave the ownership of the land to Hindus. However, the apex court also made it clear that the demolition of the mosque was a “heinous violation of the rule of law.”

The court also gave another land in Ayodhya to Muslims for building a mosque.
