On the historic day of Ram Mandir Bhoomi Pujan, Islamists suffered a meltdown
On the historic day of the Ram Mandir Bhoomi Pujan, while most of the people were busy celebrating the beginning of a new era, there were many Islamists who had a complete meltdown on social media. While, perturbed radical fundamentalists trended hashtags like #ReturnBabriLandToMuslims, #5AugustBlackDay and #BabriZindaHai calling the Bhoomi Pujan of the Ram Janmabhoomi construction site death of secularism, Maulana Sajid Rashidi from the All India Imam Association threatened that in the future, the Ram Mandir at Ayodhya will be demolished and another disputed structure will be built.
