While making changes in the syllabus of the Class XII Political Science textbook, the first change is that the term ‘Babri Masjid’ has been replaced with a word three-domed structure.

According to the old NCERT book, it was mentioned that the Babar’s commander Mir Baqi had built the Babri Masjid in the sixteenth century. However, but a new book stated that a three-domed structure was built at the birthplace of Lord Shri Ram in 1528.

In the old book, it was written that some Hindus believe a Ram temple built on the birthplace of Lord Ram was demolished and a mosque was built at the same place. However, the new book states that many Hindu symbols are visible on the outer and inner parts of the three-domed structure.
