Taj was built by traitors, says BJP's Sangeet Som

Taj Mahal Symbol of eternity

Many can debate on the importance of the Mughals and Mughal monuments when it comes to Indian history but, one should never forget that India is where it is supposed be as a result of history itself.

The BJP stepped into the row with party spokesperson G V L Narasimha Rao describing Muslim rule in India as "barbaric and a period of incomparable intolerance" while asserting that its members could hold any opinion they want on specific monuments.

He said the BJP leaders were raking up such issues to divert people's attention as their government at the Centre had failed in providing jobs, tackling terrorism, failed in dealing with China and was also facing flak from common man because of demonetization and GST.

"I don't know how they excluded Taj Mahal", Banerjee said.

"Many people were disappointed that the Taj Mahal was removed from the UP tourism booklet".

In fact, Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, who built the Taj Mahal in memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal, was the one imprisoned till the end of his days by his son Aurangzeb.

BJP MLA from Uttar Pradesh Sangeet Som had said that the Taj Mahal was built by "traitors" and can not be included in Indian history. We should expect buildings like the Victoria Terminus (now Shivaji Chhatrapati Terminus), Victoria Memorial, most government buildings in Mumbai, Kolkata, and Delhi, including the famous Connaught Place, to come down soon and removed from both the history books and the tourist attraction lists for visitors.

"Taj Mahal is such a non issue but politicians will continue to try and divide this country.aur yaha twitter pe hum RW LW khelte rahe hai (and here on twitter, we will keep playing the game of right wing, left wing)", he wrote. Posing a question to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, Owaisi asked can the UP government stop domestic and worldwide tourists from visiting Taj.

Earlier in the day, Som said that the iconic Taj Mahal was built by traitors and hence, can not be included in the Indian history.

Som has earlier too been in news for making controversial statements.

AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi tweeted: "Traitors" also build Red Fort will Modi stop hoisting Tiranga?

Shah Jahan's dream: Even though, all the Mughal monuments were built with utmost perfection, Shah Jahan wanted his monuments to stand apart. "We don't believe in dividing people like this", Mamata said.
