Babri Masjid incident was turned into a school play at this Indian school

Often, from across the border, comes a piece of news that disappoints us to our cores and pours water all over the hopes of peace for the coexistence of multiple religions within one place. A piece of similarly disappointing news was recently highlighted when a school in the city of Karnataka, India held a grand play featuring a really sensitive topic.


An Indian school in the state of Karnataka featured the reenactment of the demolition of Babri Masjid

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh is an Indian right-wing, Hindu nationalist paramilitary volunteer organization that is widely regarded as the parent organization of BJP. The school Sri Rama Vidyakendra High School, run by an RSS leader Prabhakar Bhat, made its students perform a play where they reenacted the scene of the demolition of Babri Masjid, all the while, backed up by the narration.


After the reenacted demolition of Babri Masjid, the student actors also went a step further and built the Ram Mandir in the said play

The school children made a formation of the Ram Mandir which was proposed to be built in place of Babri Masjid, in the real life incident.


People immediately took to Twitter to criticize the play, the school and the reenactment of the sensitive Babri Masjid incident


They had A LOT of questions and all of them hit right on the spot


People stated their fear for the future generations of India as well as the nation, as a whole about the values that such schools are teaching


Some people had even stated the realization that such behaviors regarding the Babri Masjid play, if promoted, lead to a worse society


Some went ahead and labeled this as the downfall of Indian democracy and state

Such actions are deplorable and deserve to be shunned from society if it wants to remain socially breathing. It is indeed shameful for India to be moving in such a direction. At the same time, while calling out India, we should be mindful of where our society is heading and remember to address the issues within ourselves as and when they occur.
