Policemen walk past an image of Hindu god Ram on the eve of a groundbreaking ceremony of a temple dedicated to Ram in Ayodhya, India, Tuesday, Aug. 4, 2020. Wednesday's groundbreaking ceremony follows a ruling by India's Supreme Court last November favoring the building of a Hindu temple on the disputed site in Uttar Pradesh state. Hindus believe their god Ram was born at the site and claim that the Muslim Emperor Babur built a mosque on top of a temple there. The 16th century Babri Masjid mosque was destroyed by Hindu hard-liners in December 1992, sparking massive Hindu-Muslim violence that left some 2,000 people dead. (AP Photo/Rajesh Kumar Singh)
