Srinagar/Authintmail: Prime minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Indian administered Kashmir will coincide with the demolition of the historic Babri Masjid.
Modi will address his first election rally in Kashmir on December 6 which was when, in 1992, rampaging mobs of Hindu zealots tore down Babri Masjid located in Ayodhya town of Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.
The demolition was blamed on the right-wing Kar Sevaks associated with RSS, which is the parent organization of Modi’s Bhartiya Janta Party.
The consequences of the demolition of 16th century mosque are still felt across India where riots are a common occurrence in many parts.
Modi is likely to address voters in Srinagar which will be his first rally in Kashmir.
His party has sought permission from the state government to hold the rally at Sher-i-Kashmir Cricket Stadium in Srinagar.
Thousands of people are expected to participate in the rally with BJP sources saying that people from 10 districts of the region are going to attend it.
