Destruction of the Babri Mosque

On the 6th of December, 1992, a rushing crowd of activists completely destroyed the Babri Mosque in northern India.  This clip, from an Australian broadcast, shows the crowd in action.

Soon thereafter, anti-Muslim riots broke-out elsewhere in the country.  Officials estimate that 2,000 people were killed, including some individuals in Dharavi.

In the film Slumdog Millionaire, Jamal Malik lost his mother in the Dharavi attack.
