‘Mandir Yahi Banega’ marker appears on Google Maps, tech giant rushes to fix the ‘issue’

Popular Hindu slogan, ‘Mandir Wahi Banayengey’ featured for a brief moment on Google Maps. When users searched for Ram Janambhoomi on one of the most widely used apps on the internet, “Mandir yahi banega” appeared as a point of interest, close to the birthplace of Shri Ram.

IndiaTimes reported that people were commenting and reviewing the place as well with it gathering 4 out of 5 stars at one point. The company has stated that it has “fixed the issue”.

Google has issued a statement on the issue and attributed it to “unhelpful edits suggested by users”.

A spokesperson for the tech giant stated:

“We’re heavily invested in empowering users to contribute their local knowledge to Google products and services. Overall, allowing users to suggest information provides comprehensive and up-to-date info, but we recognize there may be, as in this case, unhelpful edits suggested by users. When this happens, we work fast to address the issue as quickly as possible.”

Ram Janambhoomi has remained a central figure in the public consciousness for decades. 26 years have passed since the demolition of the Babri Masjid, yet the issue has still not been resolved. The Supreme Court has delayed hearings on the matter until next year. Pressure has been mounting on the BJP to bring an ordinance to settle the matter once and for all by beginning the construction of the Ram Temple.
