The Allahabad High Court today dismissed a petition requesting an investigation into the Taj Mahal’s “history.” The court denied the motion, which demanded that the 22 rooms’ doors be opened to witness “the reality, whatever it is.”
“The concerns should be handled outside of court using various methodologies and left to historians,” the court stated.
Rajneesh Singh, a BJP youth media in-charge, filed a petition in the Allahabad High Court’s Lucknow Bench, requesting that the Archaeological Survey of India investigate the 22 locked doors of the Taj Mahal for the presence of Hindu deity idols.
According to the petitioner, erroneous history concerning the Taj Mahal is being taught, and so the doors should be opened to determine the truth.
Such disputes, according to the court, belong in the drawing room rather than in the courtroom.
The Archaeological Survey of India has safeguarded the Mughal-era monument.
Shah Jahan built the Taj Mahal as a tomb for his wife Mumtaz during the Mughal era. The marble monument was started in 1632 and finished 22 years later in 1653.
In 1982, the architectural masterpiece was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site
