Amidst talks of simultaneous elections nationwide, a BJP leader has come out calling the ‘Taj Mahal’ a blot on Indian culture.
He also said that the monument known around the world as ‘sign of love’, has been described Taj Mahal as been built by ‘traitors’.
BJP leader Sangeet Som said that “Many people were worried that the Taj Mahal was removed from the list of historical places in the UP tourism booklet.
If this is history, then it is very sad and we will change this history.
It need be recalled however, that Som is one of the leaders who has been accused of having a role in instigating riots that left over 60 dead and tens of thousands displaced in Muzaffarnagar in 2013.
The lawmaker is known for his inflammatory speeches.>
