You say as a Hindu you have the right to recliam your land. Please tell me what you mean by being "Hindu" so that I can understand your position better.
I am also a Hindu and I don't want to reclaim the land in question. As a Hindu I also want that people of other faiths will not dig up history to detsroy Hindu places of worship, or any places of worship for that matter, anywhere in the world. Why do you think you have the right to speak on behalf of all Hindus, or even a majority of Hindus?
In history kings practising particluar religions have detsroyed places of worship belonging to other religions - of course there are exceptions such as Akbar and Ashoka and there must be many others. In 1947 we threw out the kings to have a democratic form of government. Don't you believe the intolerance that marked the reign of kings should also be thrown out. If you really want to go in to history and want to allow people revenge for things done to them in the past, India will be torn in to a million pieces. Should people in the South fight against the people in the north for having equated them to Monkeys in the Ramayana? Shoud people of Orissa fight against the people of Bihar to avenge the killings during the Kalinga war? Should Hindu people of the Mughal kingdom fight against the muslims for the misdeeds of Aurangzeb? Should people of central India fight against the Marathas for the plunder they committed in much of Central and Eastern India? Should people of Andhra and Bihar fight against the Oriya people to take revenge against the attacks made by Kharabela against these people? Should people of Jharkhand kill all white skinned people they see to take revenge for the martyrdom of Birsa Munda.
Dear Friend! You will never reach any where if you open the Pandora's box of historical revenge. But in case you want to start please go in order. Either start by throwing all foreign companies out from India to take revenge against the misdeeds of British East India Company or start by asking all people other than the Adivasis and the Dalits to leave India and go back to the place they came from. But the problem you'd face in case of the latter would be that you would never be able to know who are the original inhabitants, of the land that has subsequently come to be known as India, and who came afterwards.
with warm regards
