India | Hindu nationalists acquitted of destroying historic mosque in 1992

A court in India has acquitted all the suspects, including several high-profile politicians from Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s party, who were accused of demolishing a centuries-old mosque in the northern Indian city of Ayodhya in 1992 — the latest turn in a case that has long unsettled India and its secular foundations.

The court verdict is likely to further sow insecurity among the country’s Muslims, who already feel threatened by Mr. Modi’s efforts to turn India into an overtly Hindu state.
