Mahant Digvijai Nath was a key player in the appearance of the Rama idol in Babri Masjid, but little is known about him. While it is known that the Hindu Mahasabha had a role in placing the idol in the mosque, the larger plot and the chain of events that led to that act have never been subject to rigorous scrutiny. Through a series of first-hand interviews with eye-witnesses and the unearthing of archival material, the authors take us behind the scenes to understand this shadowy figure, and through him find a link to the motivations of the Mahasabha members who pulled the strings.
