Ram Ke Naam (In the Name of God) the 75-minute film traces the build-up to the demolition of the Babri Masjid mosque in Ayodhya in 1992.

Ram Ke Naam was made in 1991, a year before the destruction of the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya on December 6, 1992

The 75-minute film traces the campaign by Hindutva groups, especially the Vishva Hindu Parishad, to demolish the sixteenth-century Babri Masjid in Ayodhya.

Anand Patwardhan’s acclaimed and important documentary Ram Ke Naam (In the Name of God) scheduled to be held as part of an ILS Law college festival in Pune was abruptly called off.

After that Anand Patwardhan decided last week to put up Ram Ke Naam on YouTube, so that it could be viewed without restriction.

IN THE NAME OF GOD focuses on the campaign waged by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) to destroy a 16th century mosque in Ayodhya said to have been built by Babar, the first Mughal Emperor of India.

The VHP claim the mosque was built at the birth site of the Hindu god Ram after Babar razed an existing Ram temple.
They are determined to build a new Ram temple on the same site.

This controversial issue, which successive governments have refused to resolve, has led to religious riots which have cost thousands their lives, culminating in the mosque's destruction by the Hindus in December of 1992.

Filmed prior to the mosque's demolition, IN THE NAME OF GOD examines the motivations which would ultimately lead to the drastic actions of the Hindu organizations  as well as the efforts of secular Indians - many of whom are Hindus - to combat the religious intolerance and hatred that has seized India in the name of God.
