Two archaeologists, who oversaw the excavation, had objected to the 2003 ASI report
NEW DELHI: In 2003, ASI had came out with the ‘proof ‘of a Ram Temple on the same location where the disputed Babri mosque once stood. The ASI, which conducted an excavation at the site, then said that it discovered the bases of pillars which originally supported the roof of a temple at a layer below the mosque.
In the same year, the ASI had later submitted its 574-page report on the matter to the Allahabad High Court. However, two archaeologists, who oversaw the excavation, had objected to the report.
The Huffington Post recently conducted an interview with the two archaeologists. They said, “Underneath the Babri Masjid, there are actually older mosques.” The two historians were observers during the excavation on behalf of the Sunni Waqf Board, a party to the tile suit in the Ayodhya dispute
