Who is to say that Allah is NOT fictional?
If a monument existed for fictional Allah, why is to so inconceivable that a temple existed for Lord Rama?
It is one thing to argue against demolishment of the mosque (there are plenty of ways one can build a case against), but what is the need to question the historicity of Lord Rama? It is not for no reason that atheists are accused of being partial!
The hindutva parties seem to be the only ones who are willing to stand against Islamic and Christian fundamentalism in India. They cannot be easily wished away!
Here is my understanding,
Lord Rama is the Main Character in the Epic Ramayana, as Lord Krishna is the Main Character in the Epic Mahabharata.
Both were written by masterful literary geniuses to spread Vishnu worship in India. Many academic historians and professors of Tamil literature believe these two Epics are FICTIONS...
My extrapolation is believing such allegedly FICTIONAL mythologies, political parties like BJP/RSS mobilized the mobs to destroy a standing Historical Monument.
They destroyed it and initiated a cycle of violence in UP, Gujarat and elsewhere..
That's what I have been writing about..
Perhaps, Allah = Jesus = Ishwara....according to Theists...I don't know.
Atheists are hated by Hindus, Christians and Muslims...
But Atheists work for a peaceful egalitarian Society devoid of religions, castes and racial discrimination, believe me.
