Dec 6: will mark 20 years since the day a mob of Hindu ‘karsevaks’ (religious volunteers) brought down the centuries-old Babri Masjid in Ayodhya, triggering riots in the country as well as in neighbouring Pakistan and Bangladesh. A timeline of the dispute:



April 21, 1526: Mughal leader Zahiruddin Muhammad Babar, a descendant of Genghis Khan and Tamerlane, defeats Ibrahim Lodhi, the last sultan of the Lodhi dynasty at the First Battle of Panipat.

March 17, 1527: Babar defeats Rana Sangram Singh (Rana Sanga), the Rajput king of Chittorgarh at the Battle of Khanwa near Agra and solidifies his control over most of northern India.
