APTOPIX India Ayodhya Babri Mosque
In this Thursday, Dec. 6, 2012, photo, a Hindu holy man reads a newspaper on the 20th anniversary of the Babri mosque demolition outside a building in Ayodhya, India. In 1992, tens of thousands of Hindu extremists ripped apart the16th century Babri mosque at Ayodhya in northern India as security forces watched. Hindus say it is the birthplace of their god Rama and contend a temple to him stood on the site before the mosque. (AP Photo/Rajesh Kumar Singh)
