India: Modi to lay Ayodhya temple foundation to push Hindu agenda


India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi is overseeing the laying of the foundation stone for a Hindu temple at a controversial religious site. He is in the northern town of Ayodhya, where a mob destroyed a 16th-century mosque in 1992, in which thousands of people were killed. The building of the temple has been a decades-old promise by Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party. After years of legal wrangles, last year the Supreme Court ruled that the site belongs to Hindu groups.
