The Babri Masjid demolitions remains a black spot in the history of modern India, and it has been one of the biggest assault on the secular democratic foundation of our country, stated CPI (M) state secretary, Ksh. Santa.

He was speaking during the observation function of the 25th anniversary of the demolition of Babri Masjid, at Kakhulong community hall.
