5Pillars, a website that regulates news related to the Muslim community, was one of the several accounts that tweeted a video of large crowds dressed in saffron celebrating to loud music reportedly outside Masjid e Quadri Chaman in Gulbarga , Karnataka. The lyrics of the song's chorus when translated to English are as follows: “If you touch the temple, we will show you your place.
Other excerpts from the song include-
If you raise your eyes, the swords will shine
The land will be washed in blood, we will show you your place
If your belief is disrespected, there will be another Ayodhya
For the sake of Lord Ram, we are willing to be beheaded, we will show you your place
Saffron will be hoisted on every minaret, we will show you your place.
The lyrics refer to the demolition of the Babri Masjid in the holy city of Ayodhya, a city that has been marred by sectarian violence for decades. Indeed, thousands have been killed over calls for building a Hindu temple on the site of a nearly 500-year-old mosque. The mosque was razed during a riot in 1992; communal violence then followed. After a long legal battle, the Supreme Court handed over control of the site to Hindu groups, and a temple is now under construction.
