You have forgotten thousands of Hindu and Buddhist temples in India which were demolished or converted to mosques. Are Muslims willing to to give those back to Hindus or even allow them to pray there? Fat chance!!!

Babri Masjid was constructed over Lord Rama temple in Ayodhya, India by the Muslim invader Baber. Hindus regard Ayodhya as the birth place of Lord Rama, who is considered as incarnation of God and that was the reason Baber chose to defile this site by building this mosque.This mosque was closed for decades under the British rule and even after independence under the Indian government rule, the mosque remained closed. In essence, it was only a historic structure and not a mosque in use for praying.

When Hindus demolished this structure in 1992 and wanted to build Lord Rama's temple, did the "peaceful" Muslims of India graciously say , yes go ahead and do it?? Remember this is only one site that Hindus want it back. But Muslims cannot even allow this to happen and as a result almost 15 years later the temple is still not constructed. Lots of legal wrangling to prevent that from happening by Muslims of India. You see, with Muslims, its always a one way street, its always give me, give me. give me, and never ever givring anything back to the original owners.

Wherever in India Muslims were not able to build a mosque over Hindu holy site, they constructed mosques right next to these, e. g., two most notable places that come to mind are Lord Krishna's birth place in Mathura and Lord Shiva's temple in Varanasi where you find mosques right next these temples.

This is the standard operating procedure of Muslim invaders all over the world where they have defiled, destroyed and or build mosques. Al-Aqsa Mosque over the Jewish holy site, and the famous mosques in Turkey which were churches before the barbaric Muslim invasions are other glaring examples of Muslim intolerance towards non-Muslims.

And Muslims of Spain want to pray in Cordoba Cathedral. Yeah, only when Muslims allow Hindus, Jews, Christians, Buddhists to pray in the mosques which were either converted or built over the holy sites of these religions.
