The General Secretariat of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) expressed grave worry over the recent construction and inauguration of the "Ram Temple" at the site of the previously demolished Babri Mosque located in the Indian city of Ayodhya.

In line with the OIC position expressed by the Council of Foreign Ministers in its previous sessions, the General Secretariat denounces these actions aimed at obliterating the Islamic landmarks represented by the Babri Mosque, which has stood tall in the exact location for five centuries.

The Babri mosque was tragically demolished on December 6, 1992, by a mob of extremists. 

The Foreign Office criticized the acquittal of those responsible and expressed concern about the construction of a temple on the mosque's site by saying, “India’s superior judiciary not only acquitted the criminals responsible for this despicable act but also allowed the construction of a temple on the site of the demolished mosque,”

For decades, the temple site was bitterly contested by Hindus and minority Muslims, leading to nationwide riots in 1992 that killed 2,000 people, mainly Muslims, after a Hindu mob destroyed the mosque that had stood there.

However, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday inaugurated the incomplete controversial 'Ram Temple,' marking a significant development in the Ayodhya dispute.
