Senior Uttar Pradesh minister Azam Khan has said that he would support the Shiv Sena if it demolished the Taj Mahal and built a Shiva temple in its place. The senior minister said that the Taj Mahal should be demolished and a temple for Lord Shiva should be built. “I will put the first hammer on the Taj Mahal if they (Shiv Sena) agree to my idea,” he told reporters in Rampur.
The Shiv Sena had recently claimed that the Taj Mahal was built on a place where a Lord Shiva temple was earlier situated. Taj Mahal, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, was built in the 17th century under Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his favourite wife, Mumtaz Mahal.
