“Taj Mahal a Blot on Indian Culture”: BJP MLA Sangeet Som
But yet again, where India advances with each day ahead, it lies in the storm of political views. Yet again, it has been smeared with discrete comments and discrete words. Just a few days ago, Mr. Sangeet Som, a well-known leader of the BJP party, he himself who as a leader should try to make all the differences in our nation vanish, he himself stated that the Taj Mahal is not any special property rather is just a tombstone and too an unlucky one. Also that no type of its miniatures should ever be kept at home.

Why is it that political views, cultural differences always rise above the simple concept of hate? Why is it that our hatred does not seem to cease even when we claim to live in a developing country. Well, most people shall know the history of this monument. The monument was built by the emperor Shahjahan for his wife Mumtaz who was dying and so as to honour their love, he made this beautiful gigantic Mahal. Built for love and signifying the importance of love now for four decades, our beloved monster chose to call it just as a mere tombstone and that too an unlucky one.

It leaves us in awe at how the people that we choose to have power could easily pass such snide comments and disrespect that monument of our nation that for so many years has not only increased the tourism but has put our nation in the spot of having one of the best wonders of the world. Yet again, the symbol of love fails to justify its importance and so do we.
