BJP member claims Taj Mahal was built on a Mandir and should be reconstructed.

  • A member of the ruling party of India, BJP, asks to demolish the historic Taj Mahal.
  • He has clearly hinted at converting the Taj Mahal into a temple.
  • The historic Taj Mahal was built in the 17th century which is now facing threats to get demolished.

Demolish Taj Mahal and built a temple here – Says BJP member 

The masterpiece built by Shahjehan for his wife, an international tourist destination is now under serious threat. After the decision of the Indian court on Babari Masjid, people have started to worry about the Taj Mahal now. The way BJP has been making laws according to their own ideology of Hinduvata and RSS, there is a clear threat to the Taj Mahal now.

The ruling party of India is working on the ideology of RSS which is more of a desi version of Nazism. They believe only Hindus are superior and all other religions, especially Muslims should not even exist.

Who is this member of BJP?

His name is Vinay Katiyar and he is an elected member of the parliament. He was talking to the local press on Monday where he states “there is not much difference between Taj and Tej [Mandir]”.

“It was our temple. Taj Mahal will be converted into Tej Mandir soon,”

Says Vinay Katiyar.

The criminal history of Vinay Katiyar:

Mr. Vinay is currently facing a criminal case for his active role in the demolition of the historic Babari Mosque. Government archaeologists while replying to a petition by Hindu groups, told India’s Supreme Court that the monument was indeed a Muslim tomb and not a temple.

The Ideology of RSS/BJP about Hindu superiority:

Indian activist explains it this way:

“This is a pattern when it comes to all the monuments built by Muslims. This is what is happening in the case of the Taj Mahal, claiming that originally it was a Hindu structure and the land was forcibly taken by Shah Jahan.”

While BJP’s spokesperson has said that it was the personal opinion of Vinay and our party doesn’t approve of this.
