Rampur (Uttar Pradesh): Stoking yet another controversy, Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan on Thursday stated that the Taj Mahal is a Shiv Temple and that he would support Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in demolishing it.

“Taj Mahal is a Shiv Temple, Yogi Ji and many other people told me this. I am the kind of Muslim who would walk with Yogi Ji and will also get 10-20 thousand other Muslims along to demolish it,” Khan told ANI.Bottom of Form

In October last year, Khan had stated also that along with the Red Fort, Parliament and Rashtrapati Bhavan, and the Taj Mahal was a symbol of slavery.

In the same month, a controversy was sparked after several youths were caught reciting ‘Shiv Chalisa’ inside the premises of the Taj Mahal.

Earlier, Bharatiya Janata Party MP Vinay Katiyar had come out in support of the act, saying that it should not be condemned as there were many signs that show the UNESCO World Heritage Site was originally a Shiv Temple.

      • AnkitSir.
        Dont get carried away by malicious false myths of cutting hands.
        If true he would cut hands of Architect not labourer who does not have architectural knowledge. Common sense is very uncommon!
        So now you are convinced there was no temple and it was constructed on vacant banks of the river! Many thanks.

      • Unfortunately there were no family planning medicines that time..
        Kauravas in Mahabharata were 1,000 brothers from one mother.
        Nowadays some women find having one child a big burden…
