What is Ram Janmabhoomi (Birth-place) NYAS?

Ram Janmabhoomi NYAS is a small organization organized to encourage and observe the construction of a Hindu temple at Ram Janmabhoomi premises in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh state of India. Hindus believe that Ram, the seventh incarnation of the Hindu god Vishnu, was born in the land of Ram. The organization was founded by members of the World Hindu Council.

        Lord Rama was born in Ayodhya on the banks of the river Sarayu, according to the Ramayana. This place is identified with Ayodhya in present-day Uttar Pradesh. As per Hindu beliefs, an ancient temple stood at the birthplace to mark the spot. And that it was demolished in 1528 by first Mughal emperor Babur when he built a mosque - Babri Masjid - which was subsequently demolished by kar sevaks on December 6, 1992. Who really owns the land where it stood? That is the crux of the title dispute over the 2.77 acres of land.

Ram Mandir

Several Hindu religious organizations and political parties demanded the construction of the Ram Temple at Ram Janmabhoomi Square. There was a mosque called Babri Masjid in the compound. According to the demands of Hindu organizations, the Mughal emperor Babar destroyed the original temple of Ram in the birthplace and built the Babri Masjid. The issue was raised by the Hindu religious organization Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and the State Volunteer Association (RSS) and the country's main Hindu nationalist political party, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). In 1992, VHP staged a procession near Babri Masjid. Participants in the procession destroyed the mosque. As a result, riots broke out between Hindus and Muslims in India.

           For the first time in 1822, a Faizabad court official claimed that the mosque was located on the ground floor of the temple.


On January 25, 1993, the members of the World Hindu Council established an independent organization called Ram Janmabhoomi NYAS (RJN). The purpose of establishing this organization was to occupy the birthplace of Sree Ram and to oversee the construction of the proposed Ram Temple. Ramachandra Das Paramahans (1913-2003) was the head of the Ram Janmabhoomi NAS. Members of the organization said that the purpose of establishing this organization was to see that the secular Indian government could not occupy the Ram Janmabhoomi premises and take part in the construction of the Ram temple. Ram conducts workshops for volunteers, known as 'Korsebok', in a place called 'Korsebakpuram', outside the birthplace. This workshop is associated with the make of the temple.

Babri Masjid & SCourt 
What did the 3 sides say in SC?
       The Muslim side wants the masjid rebuilt at the same location. It also wants the SC to implement the Places of Worship Act 1991 which freezes all places of worship as they existed when India became free. This is to prevent spillovers to other disputed sites like Mathura and Kashi. The akhara and deity want possession of the land. The akhara is willing to concede the rights of the title to the deity if its shebait is recognised. After the hearings were over, the Sunni Board reportedly made a mediation offer that it would give up claim for the title if Kashi and Varanasi were left alone and the masjid rebuilt at another location. Other parties on both sides are unlikely to support this.

Ayodhya Verdict, 2010

The Allahabad High Court divided the disputed Ram Janmabhoomi square into three parts and gave one-third to the Muslim Sunni Waqf Board and the remaining to a non-violent Akhara Hindu organization. Ram Janmabhoomi NAS welcomed the verdict. However, Ram Janmabhoomi NAS said that the quadrilateral should be handed over to a competent person and they would file a case in the Supreme Court of India demanding the entire quadrant.
