December 6th in history has been of considerable significance for many reasons, mostly for bad reasons. Some of the incidents that impacted the lives and livelihood of humanity are listed below.
1992- The 16th-century Babri Masjid at Ayodhya was destroyed by the kar sevaks on the 6th of December, 1992. This incident divided India and triggered protests by the community in various parts of the nation. Many Hindus think that Ayodhya to be the sacred city in which Lord Ram came to be born. In 1528, one of the Mughal Generals of the emperor Babur built an Islamic mosque, later be called The Babri Masjid. Hindu belief systems believe the temple of Ram (which was known as the Ramjanmabhoomi that marks the spot in which Ram was born) was destroyed to make way for the mosque.
1956- Mahaparinirvana Divas- Death Anniversaries of B.R. Ambedkar- Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar, also called Babasaheb, is India’s most renowned reformer and the principal designer for India’s Constitution. The anniversary of the death of Dr. Ambedkar is on December 6th. Born on April 14th, 1891, in Mhow located in Madhya Pradesh, Ambedkar is often the leading creator for India’s Constitution and as the Dalit’s leader. However, Ambedkar was also the first to empower women in India. His work was revolutionary for women’s rights within society. As one of two delegates deemed untouchable by the British to participate in the Round Table meetings concerning Indian Constitutional Status in the 1930s, Dr. Ambedkar played a crucial part in the discussions leading to the independence movement.
Through his activities, Dr. Ambedkar helped the people who were considered untouchable and other marginalized groups of society. Additionally, Dr. Ambedkar also worked to decrease social and economic disparities in India. Along with many of his followers, Dr BR Ambedkar embraced Buddhism on October 14, 1956. His admirers and followers believe his influence was as great as that of the Buddha, which is why Ambedkar’s death anniversary is observed as Mahaparinirvana Divas.
