Among the fears of lakhs [hundreds of thousands] of Hindu Kar Sevaks who had gathered to demolish the Babri Masjid , quite a few furiously climbed onto the majestic minaret of the mosque.
The most important among the few were Shive Sainik. A resident of Faisabad, where Ayodhya is situated, Shive Prasad was the captain of Bajrang Dal.
He was given the responsibility to guide four thousand Kar Sevaks in the demolition of mosque.
It was he who gave training to four thousand people under him, on how to carry out the demolition. On seeing the majestic minarets of the mosque come down,Captain Prasad was overjoyed and shouted the "Ram! Ram!" This happened seven years ago.
Yes ! Shive Prasad has embraced Islam. He has changed his name to Mohammed Mustafa. One will be moved to learn how he embraced Islam.
This change in Shive Prasad's heart was published by Malayalam News (7.12.99) issued by "Arab News Publications" in
Shive Prasad's father Trigal Ramanathan was chief among the heads of Sangh Parivar. His whole family was actively involved in demolishing the Babri Masjid.
Soon after the demolition of the mosque, Shive prasad felt a depression in his heart. He had no peace of mind. He felt that he had committed a great sin. In 1997 he went to Sharjah in order to seek employment. But even at work his mind was restless.
All praise be to Allah ! Allah has shown him the right path. He has forfeited the ignorance and chosen the righteous path.
When Shive Prasad embraced Islam he was driven out by his family members who were strong RSS activists. He is praying to God that his family members would also choose the righteous path as he did.
Shive Prasad says that among those who led the demolition on the spot were Ashok Singhal and Advani.
On the day of the demolition, the police and CRPF connived with the leaders of BJP, Bajrang Dal and RSS. Both these law enforcing agencies greatly helped in the demolition.
He recalls that on that day Ashok Singhal dressed himself in military uniform and gave orders.
He also recalls, soon after the demolition of the mosque they entered the muslim areas in the Faisabad and shouted "Jai Shriram".
Now, Shive Prasad is receiving continuous threats from RSS, BJP and Bajrang Dal. Sangh Parivar has threatened to kill him if he returns to
But Mohammed Mustafa (Shive Prasad) says firmly that he will never turn away from Islam - the righteous path even if death comes his way.
Having learnt 17 Surahs in the Holy Qur'an, he is anxious to complete learning the whole of the Holy Qur'an.
His ambition is to become a true Islamic preacher and and bring the ignorant people to light.
If Allah wishes, his ambition will be fulfilled and the very same hands which demolished the Babri Masjid will built it up again.
