INDIA-POLITICS-RELIGION-HINDU

A member of Hindu Bajrang Dal garlands a model of a Ram temple during a procession marking the 24th anniversary of the demolition of the Babri Masjid Mosque in Ayodhya, in Amritsar on December 6, 2016. Hindu hardliners demolished the Babri Mosque on December 6, 1992, claiming it was built on the site of the birth place of the Hindu god Ram, sparking off country wide Hindu-Muslim riots. Narendra Modi has pledged to build a Ram temple at the site. Photo: AFP / NARINDER NANU
